On the Road

After an amazing last few weeks in NZ spending quality time with family and friends and soaking up the sun in the Coromandel, Hawkes Bay, Palmy North and Marlborough Sounds, we headed to Sydney for a quick stopover on the way to Asia. We had an awesome weekend – Sydney is a fantastic city and it really turned it on for us. A massive thanks must go to the lovely Jess for putting us up in her flat in Surry Hills for the weekend, and also to Tex, Paul, Olly, and Jo, all of whom it was sooo good to catch up with. We spent the weekend largely sifting around, eating good food, drinking, and enjoying the sun.

With both excitement and a little anxiousness we boarded our plane to Bangkok on Monday night. Contrary to what we'd been told, British Airways looked after us extremely well. Tired from a big weekend and the long flight we managed to find ourselves a fantastic taxi driver who got us to our hostel without any dramas at all. Baan Dinso, our hostel, is a beautifully renovated 1920's teak building down a quiet alley, close enough to the action but far enough away to give solace from the craziness of Bangkok when needed. We'll spend the next few days exploring, and hopefully have some snaps up in the next post.
