Did you know: Bangkok’s real name is: “Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit”. Yep, pretty long. The longest name of a city in the world in fact. I’ll let you find out what it means yourself…
Glad we went to Chang Mai this time, the south has become very touristy. After trekking in the mountains for a couple of days and living with the locals, you really appreciate how the real Thai people live. Such a beautiful country!
It’s so hard to pick a favorite photograph from the trip! Elephants, beaches, islands, friends, people!!
Koh Tao (Turtle Island)
Koh Nang Yuan
Mu Koh Ang Thong National Park
Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep
Flight of the Gibbon
Amber who? Honeyfox?? Whaaaat?!
A great week in a snow capped Cumbria organised by Clover and Esther, thanks guys!
Sun, sand, beach and all the drugs you can think of…..?!?! For the last time, I don’t want to meet ‘Charlie’!! Nice place, guaranteed sun and nice beaches. Never known a place with so many dealers though, and we live in Birmingham!
Rodizio De Carne La Bodega is a must visit if you “want more meat”! €12.50 gets you all the grilled meat you can eat. They just ask “you want more meat?” and there it comes!
€1.40 for a litre of SuperBock, that’s almost cheaper than fuel. €2 a pint of Magners (£3.50 in the UK!) to drown the sorrows of England losing….
Fisherman’s beach (in the old town) has a great pier to jump off (see photo’s). Check Tom nearly smashing his head off the concrete! His wiping he’s brow on the way down!!
All in all, a good laugh, top company, non-stop sun and a first class apartment! Can’t say fairer than that.
