Well folks, back to Thailand – the land of smiles and sexy massages.
We were delighted to get cheapo mc cheap flights to Bangkok and then on to Phuket. We arrived in Phuket at about 12 at night to lashings of rain. We heh hehh hellllll..
But the weather wasn’t going to get us down in the dumps – no sirree bob. Once again we had wifi in the room, air con, and our own fancy balcony aswell as a fridge stocked full of beer and fizzy pop.
The next couple of weeks are a lazy blur. We got into the routine of doing absolutely feck all. We stayed up late, drank lots of beer and hit the beach. The weather was so-so at best – we had maybe 5 days of fantastic sunshine.
I got a terrible hair cut for about 4 quid. It was going fantastically and I thought I was going to be gorgeous until she pointed at my ‘fringe’ (eh I don’t have one) and started to chop. ARRRGGHH. Now I have a very ugly sixties style mop + fringe. Lol
We rented a moped and drove around the ‘island’ – I had a go at trying to drive it. My lack of ability to hold the yoke was my downfall I reckon.
On our way back one of the days we passed a whole load of monkeys on the side of the road going nuts and stopped off to have a look. Hella cool.
During the second week, there was a military coup up in Bangkok. The military took over from the government while the Thai PM was in the states. It was the most peaceful coup in history and no one was very bothered – including the Thais. The coup claimed to have the approval of the King and everyone loves the king, so all was well. Later we heard on the news that perhaps the Thai PM had had some warning as the rumour is he “sneaked a lot of riches” out of Thailand. He he
Then later in the week, I gave James a LegoMan haircut. Lol. It looks fine I told him, it just is a bit thick and sits on the back of his head like a Legoman’s hair.
It’ll grow out in a few days.
Not much to report – the usual goings on in a beach town. As a great man once said – “Lisa, There’s an Art to Doing Nothing.”
After a couple of weeks, (the time is flying), we decided to head to Koh Phi Phi for a couple of nights – so we can go a-snorkelling and Jimbob can do a dive on the World’s 3rd most beautiful island.
