A Travellerspoint blog

Countdown....

4 days to go !

rain

oh my gush.......only 4 days to go before we leave ! I havn't exactly been fantastic at updating the blog through the planning stage but we've both been very busy working.

well, there was a point where i wasn't even very happy about going because the weather was beautiful in england, so hot and sunny, everyone was walking around in shorts and eating ice lollies and there was loads of parties planned and festivals and everyone was talking about the summer that I was going to miss out on !!
but now it's raining ALOT outside and on bank holiday monday it even rained so much that the famous packhorse fair was cancelled ! here's my short film which includes footage from the last 2 years of packhorse fair:

more rubbish stuff about england at the moment which is now making me glad to leave:

the tax has run out on my car so i can't really drive it

petrol prices are SKY HIGH

it's awful weather

all my friends have gone to sunrise festival

and i've had a stomach bug for the past few days & now can't bring myself to eat anything in my fridge incase it was the culprit.....bring on thai food !!!!!

I think we are going to be ok for money, especially as one of the guys that shane works with is going to buy my car !! (or at least he says he is...) we're expecting the money tomorrow. We've only just found out (duh) that we can buy mosquito nets, repellent, umbrellas, toiletries and just about everything else in Bangkok for a fraction of the price here in england !
And our To Do list is dwindling rapidly which is brilliant...overdraft approved - check! vaccinations - check! travel insurance - check !

Oh and here's the really great news ! - we found out that we can buy doxycycline (the malaria drug we're going to need) in the Boots on Khao San Road for 3 baht per pill which is about 5p. Which is great considering it's 20p per pill over here ! People were saying oooh i wouldn't buy medication in bangkok....but i figured since it's from Boots then it can't be dodgy....can it? We'll keep you posted on that one anyway..........

I've just turned into Monica and am making a 'preliminary itinerary' for our trip (just to make sure we get to singapore on time for our flight and don't miss anything we want to do.....not because i'm a gigantic geek or anything......)
So i'll update you later on the 'itinerary!!' haha.

Also better go and do some yoga and douse myself in fake tan because I've got to be seen.....by real people....with their EYES in about a week either in shorts or a bikini....NIGHTMARE !
