Hey guys and girls,
the time is getting ever nearer when I land in Bangkok on 27th march. Ive got so many things going through my head and yes getting nervous now. But when I get there Im just going to chill and enjoy my time. Would be nice to meet people but Im sure once there it wont be a problem.
main feeling I have is excitement! I think ive covered everything that I can think of in terms of planning and Im thinking about where I want to go but to be honest Ill leave those ideas lucid and go with it.

Wooo hooo 3 weeks

I've been mostly in Thailand for the last three months and thankfully will be home then for a bit of cooler weather. It's 9pm at night here and the temperature in my room is 37.C. Temperature goes up throughout this month and next month and the highlands and beach areas are cooler than somewhere like Bangkok. Be careful at the beach as you can badly burn yourself if you spend too long in the sun. Pick up some talcum powder or baby powder from Boots or Watsons here, to put underarm and elsewhere.

Don't take this wrong. I have only seen one case hit the British papers but there has been a few more cases in the Thai newspapers of western women being attacked and worse when they have drunk too much. Never drink anything you have left on a table in a bar while going to the toilet. Thailand is very safe compared to many countries and millions of tourists have no problems here each year but don't take chances.

Hey thanks very much,
thats great advice. Ive read so much info its all abit overloaded atm. Im not a massive drinker and certainly will be watching my drinks. When I come to the part where I travel I hope I meet people I can go with.

Thanks again
