Anyway I left there feeling only slightly more knowledgable & then popped into Whitcoulls to buy myself a Lonely Planet Guide for South East Asia on a Shoestring. FARK me that set me back $72, but I know it will be money well spent.
Then I decided to venture into another travel agent. Hoping like anything I wouldnt get treated like an idiot & waste of time again. I waited for about 25mins before I was seen to as they were dealing with other people. I ended up chatting with the guy there & mentioned similar things that I did to the last lady apart from the whole one way & that I had previously wanted to buy tickets the following week. I instead asked what was best city to land in. How would I sort out visa's, rar de rar. He was a bit more helpful & didnt treat me like a dickhead, probably because he was giving me the glad eye the whole time I was there. Haa haa o well one way to get good service aye? I left with a tiny bit more information than the last place and plenty of brochures. Now its time to look through brochures and see what the plan is. I just know best place to land is Bangkok, I have to have an exit ticket & will need Visa's. Best time to buy tickets is October because of sales with all travel agents.
What made all of this better was getting an message from a friend Connie who advised me of vital information. Security, watch out for cockies, bargining tips, make sure dont point with feet, or touch a person on the head (its rude), make sure you settle on a price in a taxi before you go anywhere and make sure they have the meter on & stuff like that.
So stupid spamming.I keep getting ruddy annoying spam comments on my blog from random chinese people/computers or whatever. At first I thought it was people commenting and I was all excited that strangers were looking at my blog. Soon discovered that it was spam and they put up random quotes and absolute nonsence. Its sooo freaking annoying. All I can do is delete it. I have tried to report it but the blogs they use to comment are private & I cant do much about it. I have changed settings so hopefully it will all go away.
On the plus side my Florence and the Machine ticket arrived today. EXCITED! Only 10 more sleeps till I hear her belt her lungs out at me. Ooo plus tomorrow night get to see Toy Story 3 in 3D at Imax FUN!
Anyways here are some pics to jazz up the blog a bit:
