Time to rest my weary feet....

So Sunday night we took the sleeper train from Chiang Mai to Bangkok, I think 'sleeper' is a bit of a misnomer really with the juddering and shaking, but still, we had a huge bunk bed in a cabin to ourselves, and the restaurant car served up some great food.

We are now staying at the La-or Resort in Hua Hin, a large town about two hours south of Bangkok, and where the much revered King has his holiday residence. La-or is just outside of the busy town centre, though Hua Hin is nowhere near as busy or manic as Bangkok and Chiang Mai - there seems to be a much more laid back feeling in the air. The resort has individual cabins, each with their own terrace sheltered by the sun, and a lovely pool to plunge into when the heat gets too much.

We originally booked a week here, but have extended it to two, so finally, we can now sit back, relax, and rest my weary feet!

As we plan to do very little in the next two weeks, other than spending time with a friend and his gorgeous new baby and wife, I thought I'd steal Justin's #tonightstea photos which he shares on twitter and show you some of the scrummy dishes we've been enjoying.

Thai green curry with roti...

... Phad Thai...

...Beef massaman...

... And beef with ginger, deep fried squid and grilled red snapper... Yum!
