Sorry it's been a while since I last blogged, the internet has been very poor where I've been travelling. On day 4 I was in Krabi and I went on a boat trip to the Phi Phi islands, it was beautiful, the boat was a tad bumpy due to the bad weather we were having but had a great time. We were taken to the lagoon on Phi Phi Don where the film "The Beach" was shot, but unfortunately we could not be taken to the actually beach as the sea was too choppy around that side of the island. The longtail boats were all bobbing up and down on the water and I managed to take a real postcard photograph. I will attach to this blog for you to see.

Day 5 was Elephant trekking. AMAZING!! My Elephant was called Ari and she was 25. She was very well trained and always waited to listen for instructions on where and when to go. She was unexpectedly rather hairy but her ears were very soft. I wanted to bring her home but she was a bit big for that. I fed her bananas as a treat, but I was sad to know that she wasn't able to rest as she started her next trek immediately after mine.

Day 6 was very long as we travelled from Krabi to George Town in Penang, which took 10 hours. This also meant saying goodbye to Thailand and crossing the boarder to Malaysia. When we arrived there was time for a quick shower before heading out for dinner. The food had malay, chinese and indian influences, so I was spoilt for choice!!
