We woke up early to join the Elephant Rainforest ride. I had been hesitant to do this, as I had heard that many elephants are abused and treated badly. I felt better after finding out that we would be going to a reputable place that treats the elephants really well – they aren’t chained up or mistreated at all. (more…)
Monday meant temple day! We had sooo much to do, and hit the
road underground first thing. We made our way to one of the central train stations where it would be best to catch a taxi. I had a questionable bathroom experience here – I’ll save you from the details, but suffice to say, I felt violated and dirty afterwards. (more…)
We are back from our amazing trip.. I have so much to tell you all! But before we get into all of that, I thought I’d share a little video I made of our holiday with you. Enjoy! :)
Bangkok, Patong, Phi Phi and Krabi. Temples, buddhas, food, partying, swimming, snorkelling, monkeys, elephants, and a whole lot of happiness.
It’s official – I fell in love with Thailand.
You have been the worst year of my life – and many other people can say the same thing. Perhaps you were here to test me.. You have done your job, I have been tested and I am now finished with you. (more…)
The plan was to leave on the 29th of December, spend one night in Bangkok, and then make our way to the West islands of Phuket, Kho Phi Phi and Krabi. (more…)
OK guys, seriously, where has this year gone? I can’t believe we’re already in December, and I have so much to do – and literally no time to do it!
I’ve got 9 more working days at the current job, after which I will get a bit of leave – and we’re going away, so I won’t be able to run any errands after this time.
9 days. 5 of which will be spent working until late in the afternoon. 1 of which will be spent at a Christmas Party, meaning I won’t get a chance to do anything. That leaves me with three days (or should I say, afternoons).. Three afternoons to: get my hair done, buy new uniforms for the new job (in town, no less), go for another orientation session at the new job as when I start there I’ll be all alone, go to SARS to sort out my banking details (I stupidly submitted my returns, only to remember that I had changed bank accounts in the year), and buy Christmas presents for family and friends. Three days.
Perhaps the Christmas present shopping can be done on the weekend – but I have one weekend left which is already filled with plans! Hopefully Delta park run Saturday morning, followed by a braai in the afternoon, and I’ll be watching Sleeping Beauty on Ice on Sunday.
Quick! Someone swop lives with me!?
