To fit in with the lack of free weekends we decided to travel to visit someone when we had the chance. We left Friday night a got a cheaper bus to Bangkok to try out a different company. It was good so we will probably use that one more often except it didn't have a toilet. We got into Bangkok in the stupidly early hours of the morning and went to get a small bus to the train station. When we finally found the right bus we got on and went to the train station. It took around 1 hour to get there and in all that time we were the only 'farang' on the bus at all. All the others use the really expensive taxi's.
Once we got to the train station, we went to asked someone where to go to get the tickets. This is where the title of this blog comes in. First we said where do we go to buy tickets for Tha Ruea. Over the next few minutes, we had two people trying to figure out where we were saying and eventually when they realised what we said, they said the same thing with only a tiny difference. If you saw our faces, they would have said, 'That's what I have been saying for the past 5 mins'. We eventually managed to get onto the train and then arrived in Tha Ruea and met up with Frances and Jelley.
