Said good bye to Mr Bob Harris, he is looking forward to a few weeks with the parents away and with Julia & Conan to look after him.
We strapped on our matching backpacks (we forgot this looked stupid when we ordered them online) and headed off to Heathrow to meet my big sis Dionne and her hubby Matt.
This is us pre - tan/burnt on the 38 bus, fact.
Luckily i got to squeeze in the last Cider before a veritable apple drought in the lovely fake irish pub in terminal 3, with a goodbye meal of scampi and chips, mmmmm!
12 hours on a plane was ok, but still, for anyone over 5"5' it is pretty cramped. To counteract this i locked in to a film marathon on the night flight, managing to watch
- Twighlight (teen vamps who dont bite and hate sex, not so good)
- Four Christmas' (christmas with vince & reese, goodtimes)
- Burn After Reading (also very good, although no seasonal cheer)
- Day the Earth Stood Still (made me fall asleep, first 30 mins ok)
In flight Suduko helped, but made me sleepy.
After landing in Bangkok, we had 6 hours to hang out before we flew to Koh Samui. First stop, cigarette smoking outside in the nice smoggy Bangkok air, nice. I blame this for my limpwristed pose.
Inside the airport, we had our own lounge to hang out in which was strange but comfy. Bangkok Airways had obviously tried to westernise its complimentary food spread, but looks like it was chosen by a disturbed 13 year old sugar addict. The food groups covered for free consumption were:
- salty popcorn, with machine.
- triangles of chocolate brownies
- upside down pineapple cake
- very small croissants that looked like plastic
- ornage sugar water
weird, but stangely comforting.
Landing on Koh Samui was awesome, it looked like we had landed on Hawaii with cool straw huts and palm trees, tropical!
The transport from plane to airport was these awesome universal studio style milk floats, hence stupid grins from the 2 matts.
Jet lag hadn't kicked in yet so we went down to the beach and met up with my family for drinks before crashing in our amazingly well air conned room ( we realised the importance of this early on)with a friendly gecko hanging out on the wall. Sweet.
