    I didn't break my legs-hooray!
    First up was sledding while we waited for a skiing instructor to finish what he was doing with another group

    Then it was time to ski for the first time. Find the whole "plow" movement a little odd at first but the steering was easy- a bit like inline skating with more of a delay. Messed about on the bunny slopes and a medium-sized gentle sloping hill. It's a sport I'd like to do again and was pleased with myself for not wiping out once, I'm very unsporty and usually shit at stuff like this!
    Other than that is pretty beautiful up there- some pics of Sky Resort




    I believe the chalet behind can be rented for the day/night.

    It was nice to get out of UB, which was its usual smokey winter self


    The actual inside of the main resort was quite crowded and I felt uncomfortable taking pics. It has recently been refurbished and is very modern. There is a food court with an attached bar. I had Korean food and it was pretty decent but not amazing.
    Later we retired to the Shangri La for beers, too many beers.

    Happy New Year! Starting with the mother of all hangovers and pretty sure I ended up on TV here drunkenly rambling about how much I love Mongolia

    Back in UB after a couple of weeks much needed time in the sun and not in a giant ashtray. A few random pics, I didn't do a great deal apart from sitting on the beach or by the pool.

    First pool in BKK- was too cold to really enjoy it
    Met a friend at the Swisshotel next door for sushi


    Visited my best friend and met her new cats- the tabby ate the fingers of my gloves
    It was then time to head to the Koh Samet for 5 days



    A brief trip back to BKK
    More pool lounging

    Went to Lobster and Burger- it's good

    Ate some a decent sized river prawns and shrimp


    Then spent the last remaining 4 days in Jomtien- a coworker was staying- so hit the bars pretty hard and just spent more time by the pool


    Tinnies Pies was visited daily for the ol hair of the dog and some brunch

    Back to the pool

    Back to UB-MIAT is a decent enough airline and shares lounge access with Thai Airways

    ha, I could smell the air walking of the plane. While BKK struggles with an AQI of 170 UB is hitting 753 in the center of town
