A couple of weeks ago it hit me that I would be saying farewell to my twenties. After a small dose of "oh my God, what have I actually done with my life" swiftly followed by "oh my God, what am I going to do with my life" I decided to push it all to the back of my mind and enjoy my last few days as a twenty-something. So what a shame we were in Malaysia. Okay, that's a little unfair. Malaysia is cheap and easy to travel around, the people are pleasant and helpful and parts of it are really beautiful. It’s just all a bit tame for a spring chicken like myself (!)
We started in Kuala Lumpur which, on the surface, is a little dull compared to other cities we’ve visited. We weren’t inspired to hike the Cameron Highlands but surely a few nights in the world's oldest jungle would add some excitement?
So where should I be for the glorious transformation into sophisticated adulthood? Bangkok of course! This has still got to be one of the most vibrant and exciting places around and, despite recent troubles, Bangkok’s spirit is still very much alive. And this time around we did it in style... check out where we were staying!
Thanks to all who have left texts/emails/facebook messages. Rest assured, I've been well and truly spoilt for a few days. It's going to be very hard slumming it from now on!
