Finally home after a lovely few days in Bangkok to break the journey.

It was the rainy season but we did manage a few hours of sunbathing on one of the days.  The rest of the time we dodged the showers or used an umbrella.  We visited the Palace and saw the Emerald Budda.  We took a long tail boat around the waterways to see the part of Bangkok that tourists don't normally get to see.  We had to shop for clothes because Qantas managed to leave our luggage in Sydney when we left New Zealand and, of course we had to go to the famous markets!

I'm glad we had a couple of days off to relax after all the training we did in New Zealand - we had a great time!
