Thailand: Beach bungalow heaven!

Happy Sunday everyone from Koh Phangan 👋🌅 I can’t believe we’ve been in Thailand for over a week already – time is going so fast! I keep thinking if this was a two week holiday I’d be hitting that depressed ‘nearly hometime’ stage. It’s nice not to have that feeling – though I do miss everyone & some home comforts…like being able to flush toilet roll!!!

Just a little island update:

After a few very tiring days in Bangkok we took the overnight sleeper train, bus & ferry to Koh Samui. This was much more pleasant than it sounds, though it was in the days of my waking in the middle of the night so not too much sleeping was done. Jonny slept the whole way (is anyone surprised?!)

Sleepless in Bangkok!

Hello from sunny Thailand!

Our first few days were spent in the madness of Bangkok. Unfortunately exhaustion kinda ruined my experience in this fascinating city!

We arrived in Bangkok after 24 hours travelling, through a couple of timezones at 2pm. Sadly, we didn’t bump into Captain Jack from Bangkok Airport (I did look very hard for him!) First things I noticed when I arrived – it’s HOT, a little smelly & very very busy! Bangkok’s train system is very good (puts Belfast to shame!) – just a few stops to our hostel Lub D in Siam Square. This hostel is class! Quirky, clean & a great location.


Lub D, Siam square! Free tea, coffee & a little guitar in the lobby!
