People i met here who contributed to, and improved my trip: Julia (Russia), Teresa (England)
On the bus ride up to Sukothai we met an English woman called Teresa and as we had similar plans, decided to go and stay in the same guesthouse. The following day we were up bright and early and the 3 of us met for breakfast, before catching a sawngthaew to the nearby ruins. Once there, we reverted to pedal power and each hired a bicycle to tour the site. Julia got the lucky break, scoring a pink flying machine, which she was all to quick to brag about :)
The ruins themselves were fantastic and i was surpised at how few people we had to share them with. For long periods of the day we came across no-one and got to enjoy the sunny day in peace.
After 6 hours it was finally time to call it a day and catch the sawngthaew back to the town, we were all feeling a little saddle sore, but had enjoyed every second of the day. To treat ourselves at night we enjoyed a few Chang beers and watched 'The Da Vinci Code' in the hostel, after which we taught Teresa a card game called Dave and tried to win all her money! I think i ended about 7 baht up ($0.20) and was obviously ecstatic, as on my budget this will fund another 12 years travelling :)
