WITH LOVE FROM THAILAND

This was the most inspirational trip I have ever taken, it opened my eyes and heart to the beauty of simple living and just how humble one can be when surrounded by such beauty, humility, love wheather its from family, friends or loved ones.

HERE IS A BIT OF WHAT I WROTE WHEN I WAS DOWN THERE…ENJOY

 The first person we met our driver to the Banana bon bon hotel was ratana, she is crazy about my hair they all are i have to demonstrate most of the time, when you say you are from South Africa they all just say ahhhhhh foootball, World Cup…..i like…., its so funny .

So we get to the hotel and Tuna the manager is so sweet, she takes good care of us, the rooms are all musky from the humidity but you get used to it coz they are all airconditioned, we spend the night having dinner in the resturant alone with the security guard Chai 1, he  is a small older guy with no front teeth, he has the biggest smile, he would never hurt a fly, at least thats what i think..hahaha .we get to have a band perform ,they keep playing for us , my friend keeps recording them with his phone and by then we have mixed our drinks tooo much and as we get up to go they play again….

We get to Sukhothia and meet the sweetest waiter Nat, he takes care of us from the get go, he doesnt forget our names and helps us with everything,  we hire bicycles to the town, i am freeked out when cars are driving behind me , but they are used to ppl on bikes so i get used to it, its not rare to see a whole family on a scootter , im talking baby in front, dad , daughter and mom, been trying to get a pic but they move to fast.We went all around the temple and it was so cool to get on a bike after 20 years and still have fun

Can you imagine no 1 to help you in english whatsoever, ordering food is the most easy as they have translations and you just point to the one you want and not forgetting to make sure to tell them not to make it hot or else like we found out that not hot is still hot.

Not much has happened as we been staying in hotels for one night and moving on, today we took a 7 hr bus ride to Auyathaya and we were only here for 1 night and then we off to BANGKOK for 1 night i cant wait it will be amazing, will keep you posted on the happy endings…gonna try post some photos

PS….i love that you can be anywhere and u can order a fruit slush puppy fresh baba….am addicted to the lemon ones…YUM YUM
