image for Man Endures 10-Hour Bus Ride To Buddhist Temple
A passenger early in the trip

An Englishman living in the Thai capital of Bangkok has told friends of how he endured a 10-hour coach journey to the far-ff northern outpost of Loei which is situated about six hours from the capital.

Yes, that's right. Six hours. Not ten.

The arduous, and seemingly never-ending venture, which commenced at 9pm on Friday night, was transformed into a Hannibal-like expedition by a series of unnecessary stops for 'noodles and a piss'.

The man, Moys Kenwood, 47, eventually arrived at the temple destination at Loei at 7am on Saturday morning, looking 'rather haggard'. He said:

"I was expecting some arseache, but this was something else. It was arduous, laborious and gruelling, which all mean relatively the same thing."

Kenwood's girlfriend, who accompanied him on the jaunt, was similarly unimpressed by the coach driver's penchant for stopping every time he saw a 7Eleven or a toilet sign, but her comments are unpublishable, even here .

Make Monkey Woods's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
