Ayutthaya,Thai boxing and the Ghost Tower

  Today we were off to Ayutthaya, the Ancient Capital of Bangkok. We left early at around 6:40 am and the day was spent visiting old temples of Rama 4 and another king that loved cock fighting, we also saw a giant leaning Buddha that was outside. It was an okay Tour. We saw elephants at…

Back into Bangkok!

The next couple days were spent recovering, I had trouble sleeping, I think it’s the Thai Red Bull. That stuff is known to mess you up, it’s a different company than the red bull we have back home so they might have some secret Thai Recipe for energy drink and it just totally messed up…

Not empty moon party

We spent the day exploring the town, getting our money set-up and finding out Merchandise for the full moon party even if we had the jungle party that night. I got a tank top and a head band, while Matt got a tank top and some paint for us to explore the possibilities :). During the…

Koh Phi Phi and on to Koh Phangan!

  We get up in the morning for our Koh Phi Phi tour, we got to the beach we had to go through pretty thick water to get to the boat, crap, I couldn’t get my foot wet while I healed so luckily throughout the day of getting on and off the boat there were…

Got Krabi’d on my foot

We ended up getting on a shuttle into Krabi for 90 baht or 3.80$ Cad. We checked into the hotel and it was awesome, they had a really cool hostel bar and the hostel looked cool too. It was one of the top Hostel’s in all of Asia in 2013, we could see why. Very…

He falls and he flies

Time to go see the Petronas Towers. On the way we stopped for food on food street. We stopped at a Thai food place and they had the best Thai food I’ve had in SE Asia so far, a good flavorful pad Thai, Matt ordered the green curry which was amazing. I think it’s my favorite go-to…

Another Botanical Garden, Yay!

Again with the botanical garden, Matt’s thing. We got up late enough and decided to head out into the town. We took a monorail which was very fun because we sang the Simpsons monorail song while on it. It costs 25-60 cents per ride and includes a pretty good view of the city. Once we got…

Singapoured beer!

We left in the morning to go check out the botanical garden, because that was Matt’s thing. It was alright, we saw a lot of ginger plants and made a lot of ginger jokes, so basically this is where gingers come from. It was a good time. Afterwards we headed into Chinatown where I wanted to…

Meeting and losing familiar faces

Sam and I got up and wandered the streets, I needed to replace my stolen rain jacket so we ended up getting some northface stuff, I got a new rain jacket for 400k dong (26CAD) and he got a travel 75L backpack because he didn’t have one, he was travelling with two 30L packs. So he…

The Perfume Pagoda, a monk’s journey.

Woke up not too late not too early, Sam went off to do museums and Ryan and I just wanted to hang out. We walked around and went to a nice shirt place, you get what you pay for and we accidentally got his and hers shirts. Same colors different design so we match quite well….

HAAAAANOIIIII!!!

Leaving from ha long bay, the bus ride again was horrible. Never had I hated a bus ride before in my whole life, this was a bad road and I was quite tired. So it didn’t help. We got into Hanoi and we went for the first egg coffee invented in Hanoi, it was like a…
