Well here I am again in sunny old Thailand - "The land of the free" and I mean what i say!

Landed in Bangkok on Monday 21st August after a rough stop over at Moscow (Russia) for three hours @ approx 04:30 local time. There were bodies sread out all over the floor so I endeavoured myself to catch some shuteye on the ever hardened polished marble looking floor. No way was I going to get to sleep so I just walked around alot starring at the unusual habbits of the humble human.

Finally got to bangkok at 21:00pm local time. The heat after stepping of the aircraft was tremendous, beads of sweat on the forhead rolling down my cheaks !!WOW!! One night in Bangkok is just about all I can handle, so right now im sat in this well conditioned net-cafe in Pattaya. Monday I leave for Koi Samui one of the native islands, its alot more chilling than the hectic streets full of cars, truck, bicycles, you name it! The so called Go-go girls are sight to see in Pattaya. Read below for details. Well cant think of much more to say other than im deffo not touching another cc of Thai whiskey NO WAY!!!! NO FRIGGIN WAY!! that stuff is evil. I have never in my whole life had an experience like that!

Im going scubba-diving on the island, and ive also started alittle Thai boxing to keep myself fit. You can certainly tone up in these hot country's I look at myself in the mirror and can see the deffinition comming through.

Ok i'll keep you posted about the rest of the holiday as it progresses. In the meantime - "stay cool"
