    "Bags are packed.. I'm ready to go... Leaving on a jet plane"

    Well it's wheels up tomorrow!!!!....YEAHA!!!

    Do you think "I'M EXCITED ?????"

    BLOOODY OATH I AM !!!

    It didn't go as easily as it should.
    Last week, I started booking the flights. I did my usual, open 2 pages, one for Virgin to check the flights to and from Sydney, also Emerits booking page for the same times, and co ordinate the best joint fares.

    I am always worried, as they are 2 different carriers, that I book one and then by the time I get to the second, the flight is sold out.

    So here I am filling out each page, then the other carriers page, then back to the first and so on.

    While waiting for permission to take time off, I had watched as all the flights from Friday, back to Monday were booked out, only Monday left, next was Sunday, and a total of $665 more, as well as I cant take weekends off.

    So I get to the credit card page, Virgin first, got confirmation, and came over to finish on Emerites but it had a problem with the card, then said my session had timed out, restart again......WTF!!!!!!

    I quickly started to re book, but it came up with no flights on that day .. OMG!
    I just waisted $385 for conecting fares, and nothinmg to connect to.

    I tried to find a phone number for Emerites but the web site has none, yellow pages on the net, No, nowhere could I find a number. I called "Call conect service" they found a number, and I finally, after being on hold for what seemed ages, got an operator, told him what had happened, he checked and said there was still a couple of seats left I screamed "Book one!".

    So after getting it all sorted and paid, he was talking seat preference, I said exit door, as I'm 6'2'' long legs and 17 stone. He said you cant book them, they are allocated at the counter, but he put a note on my booking.

    I remember the first time I flew with them to BKK, I fronted the counter and the girl looked me up and down and said "I think you need to be in exit row". Hope it happens again...5555

    I have booked a room in Royal Marina Residence at Sri Racha. I have booked Mr T taxi, and he so far is excelent, 1,000bt inclusive, even though its early morning. Returned my email within 8 hrs.

    So I phoned Jeab and told her where we stay and for her to go there Monday, and I will be there about 3 am next day. I hope she can find it, and brings enough clothes for 2 weeks. Language barrier rearing up again...

    JC, like most of us I have been following yours and Jeabs story and now that you are actually on the way (well you will be tomorrow) I am just about as excited as I would be if I was going to LOS. I seriously hope that all works out will for the 2 of you and that the trip lives up to your expectation. I don't think i need to tell you to have fun as I am sure you are going to none the less. It really does sound like you have a higher power helping you and hope that from this trip that the 2 of you can continue what was started. I had the same issue with Exit row seating on a VAustralia flight but with them you can pay an extra $150 (eachway) to book it, I thought stuff that it's only 9.5 hours which will follow in a great holiday. I arrived at the counter the girl looked at me and said "You can have the Exit Row seat at no extra charge" I was stoked.

    All the best JC, can't wait to hear all about it.

    Yes I am pumped, but have a cold and feel like ... hope it doesn't ruin it.

    I first called Jeab, having not responded to her sms or calls for weeks. I didn't know when i could if ever see her again, so had told her to move on. When I called her, I asked where she was? she was with family, not working ,too much rain, I could hear her daughter and mother in the background playing, laughing and some dishes, she was a bit shocked, and wanted to know "why you not return sms? why you no call me? when you come see me again, I miss you, we be happy together."

    So I said " I come Thai next Monday, come see you", she didn't take it in at first so I had to say it slowly. I was asked how long? 2 weeks.
    "I come Bkk airport, when?"
    " No it very late, after bars close, no ferries, I come to mainland at Conburi and stay motel then come to you on island Tuesday after lunch. We go see my friend s In Pattaya, I get teeth fixed, then we go Chang Mai".

    "No No go Pattaya, you stay me and island"

    "No! I go fix teeth, same same as when we first meet, and I see friends as well"

    She was reluctant but accepted. So I have booked royal Maina Residence in Sri Racha, and have arranged for her to move in tomorrow, I hope she finds it, and brings clothes for 2 weeks.

    Rivo,
    I have packed the camera, but will be hard pressed to get any suitably quality shots to post, my nerves are so shot, my whole boady goes into shakes.

    I will do a full, open TR despite what ever happens.

    Shame we missed each other mate, would have loved to catchup with you.

    If you get up to CM make sure you go to 69 Bar with your girl, she will be made very welcome and the girls will keep her entertained for hours, while you enjoy a cold drink 555

    You can go to the Bar early evening if you like, jaffaman is an early starter 555 Not like Phuket where you need to wait until late evening or early morning 555

    69 bar in CM is a must IMO. Great place, The girls really make the GF feel welcome and she will not want to leave. Noy has been a bit fussy with other girls in Bars but continues to ask me when we are going back there as she loved it. If you get a chance get to CR for a day trip. a few great things to see there.

    Just a word of advice, dont visit the hodpital in CM, although they look after you well it is not a very good tourist destination 5555

    Ahhhh JC!!! Absolutely great!! I know exactly how you must be feeling right now!! I was so worried I might get sick in the days leading up to my trip. Whatever bit of a cold you have, that Thai heat will sweat it right out of you!! 555 Have a great time, and tell us all about it when you get home!!

    Well made it,
    am sitting in the foyer with Jeab waiting for a taxi. We are headed to Patts for 5 or 6 days, then probably go CM for 5 or 6 then back to her island for the remainder.

    I'll do an update and start

    Sorry for the suddden stop, the cab arrived, and we had to go.
    Now in Patts, and staying at JP resort? Has a nice pool, no iternet in room ( forgot to ask first) so won't be a running TR this time.

    Rivo, I don't think, after the trips and where you have been here, that you have any chance of loosing you title mate, but thanks anyway.

    Yes it was good geting back with Jeab, and a few funny stories for when I write the TR.

    It is quiet season here, but still a maniac traffic, i must have been ting tong to have ridden a big bike, or any bike, here for a month 5555

    Great to hear that you can Jeab met up successfully, JC, and looking forward to your TR on Patts, and I'm thinking of going there for a week on my next trip. Keep us updated, even if its just in small posts to let us know all is going well!

    Have a blast!!
