Having woken up at ridiculous o’clock in the morning cause we are both still on Australian time, we both managed to force ourselves back to sleep for a couple of extra hours before getting up with ambitious ideas to fill the day with catching up on blogs and making plans for the upcoming weeks. We headed up to the roof terrace to consider getting some fresh air but with the humidity and heat, there was no way that we would be able to sit up there for an extended period of time, despite the stunning views.We headed back downstairs and sat directly under the wifi router to start working. Jayne started choosing photos and I began uploading them to the blog. Got a couple done before we both decided we were too tired to continue so headed back to the room. Jayne played some Candy Crush whilst I indulged in a little nap (for those who don’t know me I never sleep during the day because, 9 times out of 10, when I wake up I am like the antichrist!). As I snored softly next to Jayne, a little nap turned into a longer one and a game of Candy Crush turned into several levels – so much for our well thought out plans for the day! When I woke up, we pottered around for a bit, checking Facebook, emails and Pinterest before deciding to head out for dinner. Back to our favourite street cafe around the corner from the hostel, we had literally sat down when the heavens opened and the rain flooded the street within a matter of minutes. Watching the locals shield themselves from the rain and constantly try and empty the puddle from the awnings was what past the time before the food came. Stuffed full of Thai green curry and papaya salad, the rain had stopped by the time we walked back to the hostel although the street were still wet so my feet became disgustingly dirty in the space of 2 minutes and need a good scrub before I was allowed to get into bed.
