Thailand Rundown

We took a BlogBreak during the first leg of our trip in Thailand. This is what we’ve been up to:
·        Bangkok:
Made up a convoluted story so we would not have to share taxi with annoying Irish dudes from our flight.
Ran into annoying Irish dudes from our flight on Kao San Road.
Spent evening listening to annoying Irish stories.
Got scammed out of visiting Grand Palace (“It’s closed for Buddhist holiday, but here, take tuk-tuk driver to giant Buddha statue and tour all around Bangkok!”).
Scammed tuk-tuk driver right back and made it to the Grand Palace in no time.
Saw Inception after standing for Thai National Anthem in movie theater.
Overnight trained to Chiang Mai.

·        Chiang Mai:
Rode an elephant.
White-water-rafted. (MJ fell into the raft).
Bamboo-rafted. (Chloe fell into the water).
Fly to Phuket.

·        Phuket:
Car to what we thought was Krabi Beach.
Long–tailboat to Railei Beach.
Kayaked through limestone cliffs. (5 minutes in: Chloe started a singalong. MJ rolled her eyes. 10 minutes in: MJ is belting out showtunes).
Evenings at Skunk Bar. Met guys from Italy. “You’re from Florence? Oh my God, we lived there for a year!” ….silence).
Longtailboat to Ao Nang.

·        Ao Nang:
Bought tickets to mini bus and ferry to take us to Koh Phangan.
Spent night in Ao Nang.
Woke up and are: hoarded into a pick-up truck, herded into a regular bus, packed onto a smaller bus, pushed onto a trolley, piled onto a ferry, thrown into another pick-up, and 13 hours later:

Arrive on Koh Phangan,
Party Paradise.
