before the plane set off I arrived in the city of angels Krung Thep or
Bangkok. It was like going home to a warm welcoming with smiling
people, great food and parties that last all night. I shared a taxi
from the airport and found the hostel that I'd stayed at 4 years
previously with Sabine. I payed 160 THB a night (3 EUR) and for the
first few days just chilled out around the Kao San Road area. I then
decided to explore BKK and went to Wat Pho where the huge lying Buddha
spends his time and Wat Arun with its impossibly steep steps. I met a
dutch guy who I'd met once in Yangshuo, China and went around with him
and his girlfriend for the day
That night I decided to get a tattoo and got a cool Mauri design on my foot...which by the way is quite a painful location.
The next day I planned my Thailand trip a little bit more extensively
than I previously had and decided to head for the beach to climb near
Krabi on a beach called Ton Sai. I booked a train / bus ticket for 660
THB (13 EUR) and caught the overnight sleeper train to Surat Thani
where I needed to Change for Krabi.
