Climbing and Cooking in Krabi
The second day of our Thailand adventure we took another long tail boat back to Railay to do some rock climbing. The area around Krabi has some amazing cliffs, so we packed our climbing shoes in the hope that we would get enough sunshine to use them. We booked a half day trip and ended up doing three climbs each - more than enough for our poor muscles to handle.

The second climb was easier in some ways because the techniques were fresh in our minds, but harder in some ways because those muscles we rarely use were starting to feel the burn.
|Who knew I had muscles?!!|
The last climb we tried was much taller than the previous two. The first bit was a little tricky, but after that it got easier until we reached a nice large ledge. After taking a break here, Phil gave it several goes before repelling back down.

After lunch and a nap by the pool, we were collected and taken to Smart Cook Thai Cookery School to cook our dinner.

They had the ingredients all set out prepared for us, so we just had the fun part of grinding the curry spices, smashing garlic, and mixing it all together.
We made green curry chicken, red curry chicken, spring rolls, banana spring rolls, pad thai, chicken with cashews, hot and sour soup, and chicken in coconut milk soup. They were all really good, and I think I found a new love for green curry and banana spring rolls.

So who is coming over for dinner next? :)
