After hanging out with my little bro for his birthday in the morning he drove us to the airport where we struggled with our luggage (we really miss our husbands at times like these) check in went smoothly and even the customs guys were in a good mood and smiling! For those who know me well they would know I hate airports and all the stupid rules but it was very easy and pain free.. I wonder if it is because we are travelling with a Buddhist group and so are generating good karma :-) We got to meet the rest of our group and discovered we are the babies of the group which should prove interesting.. most of the group seem truly lovely and we are all so happy to be on a trip of a lifetime we can't stop smiling even after a 9 and a half hour flight and the prospect of a 4.30am wake up call!! The flight was great highly recommend Thai airways I watched 4 movies Snow white and the huntsmen,Rock of ages (which I loved!), Chicago(again) and what to expect when you are expecting, also received a blanket and a pillow and two 4 course meals that were delicious and free drinks the whole flight.. love international travel. Arrived at Bangkok and have checked into our hotel and am about to head to bed so I get some sleep before our 4.30am wake up call.
