Where I stayed
Tanisa resort

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

This morning we had a bit of a lie in as I was just too tired to get up, and it was around lunch time when Peter finally made me get up. I felt so tired I ordered a breakfast and only ended up eating my toast so Peter finished it off.

Our resort has free bike rentals, so we borrowed 2 push bikes and decided to ride into town to explore. I haven't been on a push bike since I was about 13 and when they say you never forget how to ride a bike...they lie! It took me a couple of minutes to actually ride in a straight line, which isn't good when your trying to dodge motorbikes and cars that just make their own lanes and drive where they want on either side of the road!

(As i'm writin this we are sat in an internet cafe, and the lad next to us is watching porn...Peter thinks this is hillarious and keeps pretending i'm writing something funny when the lad looks at him!)

Back to the bike ride..we stopped at an ice cream parlour to get something to cool us down and was amazed at how cheap it is. It cost us about 1.00GBP for a bowl of 2 scoops of ice cream and a banana split. We were given a free jug of water while we waited, and had to laugh as the Thai girls who worked there kept comming out to look at us and then go back in whispering to themselves. It must be wierd for them to see two English people here, as Chumphon is normally a pass through town not a place to stay.

After that we continued on our bike ride and saw all the night markets setting up. Clothes here are also very very cheap. Tops are typically between 50p and 80p and dresses are about 1.00GBP. On one stall a woman was setting up all wierd and not so wonderful things such as cockroaches, crickets, grasshoppers, beetles and widgedy grubs (like the ones in I'm a celeb..) We was being nosey trying to see what was happening when a man offered Peter a grub. Peter trying to be polite took the grub and put it in his mouth. His eyes started to water and he said 'mmm nice' It wasn't long before he had a drink and told me it was crunchy on the outside but when he bit it, it exploded in his mouth and tasted like crunchy snot. Thanks Peter. Safe to say we didn't buy any of them.

After this we headed back to the resort for a swim and to chill after the long ride we had been on. For tea Peter went back into town and got a nice big Hawaiian Pizza ( I think the grub had put him off the market for tonight) and as it was getting dark, he decided to grab a taxi motorbike back. It was only 80p and he came back looking rather nervous. We ate our pizza which was gorgeous while watching the Thai news. V.Interesting!

Loves xx
