forgot my damn shoes!
But nothing can prepare you for it The voice On the other end LCD Soundsystem, Someone Great
so right now im sitting in a net cafe on Khao San Road, sipping on a Tiger, writing my first post from outside oz! ok so where to start.. i forgot my damn shoes! realised on the way to the airport, i only had my Reef slides.. noworries, i thought, im going to thailand dammit - i'll buy a cool cheap-as-chips pair when i get there. umm yeah about that... the fatal flaw with this cuningly drfted plan asian people dont necessarily have the biggest feet.. so every place that sells shoes has their biggest pair a size 12... and im a 13. dammit! i can squeeze into them but theyre tighter than a .... well, you know what i mean... so thats my plan for today. find some shoes that fit me! my other goal for today was to book a ticket to chang mai, and iv already done that. im getting the train there tonite wooooo! umm other things worth mentioning -
the flight was coooool! i dunno why people complain about flying! i watched 3 movies, read my travel books, listened to tunes... i coulda done the resta trip to london no problem!
on the bus from the airport to my hostel on the first night i looked out the window to see the dude on the passenger seat of the car next to me just casually playing with a handgun... welcome to thailand!
its so damn hot and sticky! aircon is my friend
im still learning the value of the baht. like, whats a good price and whats a ripoff. but im getting there.
anyways, like i said, i gotta find some shoes before i get the train tonite, so i better get onto it!

haha you idiot :P i think its about 28 baht = $1 i found it way more confusing than 12 000 dong = $1
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!
