Day 254 – Arriving in Krabi

Next stop – Krabi. We jumped in a small suped up minivan, and watched Transformers 3 with base pumping all the way!

We checked into the Pak-Up Hostel which was really nice. Before we had a chance to head out, John headed to the toilet. It seems that so far in Asia he really likes spending time in toilets.

After some time on the loo, John finally felt well enough to come out for a bit. I blame the fried goodness he ate yesterday! We headed out to explore the local area and look for some places to eat in the coming days. The first thing you notice about Krabi is the very strange traffic lights on the main road.

We booked the ferry for a couple of days to go to Koh Jum and a place to stay. In the evening John’s stomach had calmed down and we headed out to the food market by the river / boat dock. We ordered food but John took someone else’s food unknowingly, which caused a huge confusion and the poor street food vendor running around having to make an extra meal.

John was just happy to eat something after not having anything all day. We had some beers, then headed back to the Pak-Up hostel roof bar for some more beers!
