Yesterday was definitely a low point of the trip for me. We left Bangkok and flew to Phuket. We left Phuket from the airport to catch a bus to Krabi. It was a 2 1/2 hour bus ride. I have one word for that ride: misery! I was feeling a little nauseous before we got on the bus so I took a Dramamine. I think the nausea had to do with something I ate for breakfast. The bus was jam packed full with people sitting 3 deep in a 2 person seat. We stood for the first 1/2 an hour. I thought I was going to throw-up or pass out. Luckily, someone left from a seat by me and I was able to sit with one cheek on the edge of the seat. I had to keep my head down on my lap on my backpack and concentrate really hard, just not to throw-up. I made it to Krabi without tossing my cookies. I was proud of that accomplishment! We then had to walk 3 miles with our big packs to our hotel. More misery! There are tons and tons of cabs and Tuk-Tuks in Bangkok, but none to be found in Krabi. We finally arrived at our hotel and I took a shower and went to bed. (oh, I also left my sunglasses on the bus by accident. Dang!)
On the bright side, we are in beautiful Southern Thailand with crystal blue water, beaches, and limestone cliffs. This morning we are catching a boat to the island of Hat Lai Ray. We are going to stay in a bungalow and relax on the beach. Ahhhh, just what I need right now. I think now is the time for a Thai massage too.
I hope all is well back in the States!
