Bus ride from HELL
Young man The powers in your hand Slam your fist on the table and make your demand You better make the right move Got the freedom to choose You better make the right move Matisyahu, Youth (from marco's ipod)
ok so i had heard that the road from Seam Reap to the Thailand border was pretty bad, and lemme just say those people are totally wrong....
ITS NOT A ROAD ITS A FREAKIN MOONSCAPE!
mannnn im physically sore and tired after that drive... it really didnt help that our bus was ancient and felt like it had no shock absorbers.. or that i was on the back seat..
i have bruises on my knees and my shoulders and arms are sore from bracing myself against the seat in front. i lost count of how many times i was launched entirely off my seat. argh... and it took forever! i rekon on that crappy road we had an average speed of prolly 30km/hr.. at places we prolly topped out at 50... i didnt get to bangkok till 9ish after leaving at 8am smorning..
oh it sucked...
but anyways, im in bangkok now. met some more cool ppl on the trip. 2 german mates, Marco and Andy. they were on the back seat too but had made the journey to seam reap only a few days before so they knew what it was gonna be like.. they were good to chat too. and theyre gonna be in the islands from tmro too so might run into them there.
i've decided that now is the time for me to make my first overseas endeavor, and so i am doing a bit of traveling, doing a bit of working, and mostly just doing a bit of everything.
so i leave (or have already left!) Sydney on March 3 for numerous overseas locations: some already planned, many not.
wish me luck!
