Kanchanaburi

We are currently in Kanchanaburi, which is where the "Bridge over the River Kwai" can be found, we are going to take a look at this tomorrow before going on something known as "The Death Railway", sounds cool huh?
Since my last blog, we have become fully qualified scuba divers, completing an SSI Open Water course, enabling us to dive anywhere in the world up to 18 metres, we are hoping to do our advanced qualification which will enable us to dive to 30 metres, we will have to see how things turn out though. The diving was absolutely amazing, we saw all sorts of wonderful, colourful fish, most of which I can't remember or don't know the names of. Big thanks to Big Blue Diving and our instructor, Steff.
We left the lovely island of Koh Tao yesterday, after a 2 hour boat journey we then had a 7 hour coach trip, though unfortunately we broke down (memories of school trips with Jones' Coaches came flooding back), so we arrived in Bangkok an hour late and therefore missed our bus to Kanchanaburi so we came here this morning, though that was hard work aswell, the taxi driver took us to the wrong bus station, then we got a public bus to the right one but had no idea when to get off, we got there in the end though and found a cheap room with Sugar Cane Guesthouse.
The hotel room we stayed in last night in Bangkok was home to a big cockroach, very nice.
Just noticed that England are getting a hammering in the cricket, no surprise at all really. As for the football, well I'm very glad I didn't stay up to watch the last match, he has to call up Gareth Barry soon.
Lots of love

    Hey guys,

    First comment from me, sorry for the delay. All sounds fun. Try not to destabilise any more Far Eastern nations. I'll keep an eye on your progress!
