Hello Everyone!!

Well here I am in Krabi after a 12 hour overnight train journey from Bangkok. I think the reason the train took 12 hours is because it was going so slowly I probably could've walked along side it and kept up!!

Bangkok was crazy and there was so much going on every second of the day, I didn't like being hassled by the street sellers and tuk-tuk (aka death-cab) drivers, but it was great to experience the culture and visit the Grand Palace.

Last night we took the sleeper train to Surat Thani on the east coast of Thailand and then drove across to Krabi (Ao Nang to be precise) on the west coast. It is much more peaceful here compared to Bangkok, but the food is just as good! You'll be pleased to know I'm not going hungry!

Today it has rained very heavily ALL day so I haven't done much! Tomorrow I am going on an Island tour including Phi-Phi where they filmed "The Beach", so hopefully there will be no more rain! Friday I'm booked in for and Elephant Trek which I'm very excited about. Then I head off bright and early Saturday morning, leaving Thailand behind and crossing the boarder into Malaysia and my next stop, PENANG!

Another update coming soon.
