Another bloody bus

Day 252: Somewhere between Koh Lanta and Bangkok, Thailand 07/06/2012
Wake up to find the rain is just unrelenting. As well as coming through the ceiling, the water is finding its way through the wiring and out via the sockets and light switches. Time to leave we think and after breakfast I take a stroll to find out if we can change our bus tickets to leave today. Turns out we can so a couple of hours later we are waiting at the travel agent/internet café for the minibus to turn up. With the rain lashing down it arrives forty five minutes late and our luggage is wedged in amongst the other passengers whilst we get the relative comfort of the front seats.
We are dropped at the wrong place in Krabi but luckily a very helpful woman at the bus station (I know, a helpful person!) calls the bus company and we are transported to the correct destination. After a bite to eat we get on the bus to Bangkok, where we are by far the oldest people. The rest are all real Khao Saners aged 18-19. One very annoying Brummie girl needs to be gagged/killed/forcibly ejected from the moving vehicle (delete as applicable) but after she eventually shuts the f*ck up a decent night’s sleep follows.
