Thailand

Hello! As pictures speak a thousand words, that's a lot more than our haggard selves can put together at the moment, so please follow our travels through the medium of art. (as we can't muster up basic English at the moment due to extreme Zen/traveller state).

HALONG BAY
was quite possibly the most incredible sight to behold. Amongst kayaking and prodding jellyfish with kayak paddles, we met an Aussia who looks AND sounded like Will Ferrell. We also met 3 Aussie Sheilas (average age of 55 years old) that said we can stay on their farm near Brisbane, do a days work and eat some home cooked food! (probably cheese on toast)

jumping- nick jumped off the top of the boat because he is brave, phil did a dive off the second level and everyone applauded and coops can bomb like an obese child in a public swimming pool

CHIANG MAI
flew here from vietnam through air asia. coops had his hair cut at Toni and Guy Essenuals (not gay) and the result was a look very similar to a certain german dictator...

chiang mai itself is a splendid city, very chilled and has a moat surrounding it to stop nutters from getting in. we did a lot of exciting things like elephant trekking in remote unprofessional environments, trekking, and by trekking I mean help a local man search for vegetables for his dinner because he was too hungover and cooking school. coops could not partake in this as he was violently ill from phils recommendation of dodgey mexican, and in true karma style phil followed suit.

at the highest point of chiang mai 1363m (coops said that this still wouldnt be a mountain in the Alps therefore its not impressive and chiang mai should chill out calling this a mountain)

MOVING ON...

We got a VIP local bus to Bangkok last Friday which was brilliant. It would've been even more brilliant if we could've appreciated the local Thai Karaoke that was played on full blast every two hours when we were trying to sleep. We leave for KHAO TAO on Thursday on a far less impressive bus and will give a Bangkok blog low down before then. This is too much fun for one day.

Stay classy! nic phil and coops xxx
