Hi all well after an eventful four days in vietnam we are now in phuket. The first day in hanoi was dire we arrived it was raining and cold. We then went on a boat trip the nmext day to halong bay. WOW WOW WOW This place was amazing so nice we slept on a junk boaty in the bay anbd went kayaking in emerald green waters through caves and everything. The rest of the tour was basically just sailing round the 2000 islands they have there. Very pretty and so relaxing fter the stressful time we had there. We arrived back in hanoi city after that and went str8 to the airport as Vietnam was proving a little too stressful for me at that time too much traffic and far too many beeps from cars motorcylces and what have you. We had to pay $526 for both of us to leave hanopi and had to get a plane back to bangkok. Then we were to late to get a flight down south sao we ended up having to get a hotel byu the airport more expense we couldnt afford, we ended up the next morning having to spend about 6 hours in the airport before we caught a flight down here to phuket. We booked a hotel in the airport for three nights then were going to try and catch a boat to krabi and an island we have been reccomended by a couple of polish lads we met. They went swimming with Sharks HAve it Ill have some of that please.

We have been on the beach all day today and now were both frazzled and brown after just 3 hours in the sun. I think tommorow were going to hire a jetski and try some stunts on the water out sunburn provailing.
Running out of money now though so little bit worried but i guess we will get buy somehow.Any donations will be gladly recieved.
Or 0% loans on a long term basis.
Ill try and put some more picxs on soon but it takes ages and is a right pain in the arse.
Anyways byes for now.

Sounds like you've had a hectic few days. Halong Bay sounds lovely. So you're down in Phuket now and spending some time relaxing on the beach...that sounds lovely. It's raining, miserable and cold here - no surprise there!!
Keep an eye on your money - just scrimp where you can, maybe you can save a bit on your accommodation by sleeping in flea pits for a couple of nights! Just always make sure that you have enough money to get where you need to be to come home. Don't be doing a 'banged up abroad' on us!!
Have fun and remember to load up the pictures soon - we need pictures!!!
