hello just to let you know we arrived safely - although we did have a kamikaze taxi driver from the airport to bangkok !!
when we first got out of the taxi it was literally like a wall of heat - SO hot and humid...and i was wearing sweaty betty leggings from the plane!!!
walked around for a while trying to find khao san road (backpacker central). So many smells...not all nice ones ! We saw a lady living in what can only be described as a magazine cave with her cat. (a newsagents!)
Staying at this quite nice guesthouse with a rooftop pool (just been for a swim) called D & D Inn right on Khao San road. Might move somewhere quieter and cheaper tomorrow night.
About to go out and have our first Thai meal in actual Thailand ! Still can't believe we're here....it's so surreal !
