Arrived Koh tao yesterday all safe and sound.. and with glass shisha pipe in one piece. We arrived in Bangkok the day before and spent much of the day shopping in Kho san rd and sampling the local beer.. Singha..crawled out of bed at 3 am to make the flight to Samui . Got a bit of a fright at check in because they now have a policy in which you have to present the credit card that was used to purchase the plane ticket. Not only do I seldom carry credit cards overseas, but I had been informed just before leaving Dubai that the bank had taken it upon themselves to cancel said card at the beginning of January! Drama drama drama! Anyway, thank God Sharon had hers with here and we had to buy 2 new tickets to be allowed onto the flight!! Seriously!! Arrived at Beautiful Samui, sanity intact, and headed off to the boat having got the tickets, consisting of a label stuck to the shirt, at the airport. At the boarding gate we got sent back to get paper tickets.. oh well such is life I suppose! V choppy ride over, and now we are here!! Spent yesterday trying to track dowm the friend who lives here to give him the glass shisha pipe, and then we all went out for the night!! Crawled in at 2 am.. ah!! life!! Might take a shot at diving tomorrow..maybe..
