Last time we wrote we were in Khao Sok National Park...since then we have moved to Krabi...beach! The first day we were here we laid on the beach in ao nang, the local place. It was very nice.. but i have got really burnt on my shoulders and since then i have been covered up :- (
Yesterday was the most awesome day ever! We had booked to go on an island hoping tour....which was in a speedboat. this i thought was a great idea. i had never been in a speed boat and thought it was going to be awesome....it was more an experience. I really did not think that we were going to make it back alive...joking aside the boat was really good. we stopped off at abot 7 places where we could either lay onthe beach or snorkel. Suprisingly...i snokelled quiete a bit. The highlight of the day for me was going to the island where the beach was filmed. It was stunning...truly stunning, especially as it was valentines day. The whole trip was exciting and so beautiful.
Being valentines day we decided to get dressed up and go for a proper meal in an indian restaurant. The food was delicious, and still much cheaper than an english restaurant.
After that Lee turned into a gentleman and bought me a red rose (although totally unpractical for backpacking but i still loved it!) and we then went to the beach and let off a lantern together which was very romantic...after that we went back to the hotel and watched tv all night! It was the best valentines day ever!!!
Today we are just slobbing around as we are both so sunburnt that we just cant face the sun... so we are just packing the bags and chilling.
Tomorrow is going to be a heavy travel day as we will travel by bus to the south of the country, then cross the border into Malaysia, which will please lee and his stamps in his passport. We will arive at penang late in the evening. So its gonna be hot and long day tomorrow...
Sorry we have not phoned lately but the phones are difficult to use and nowhere seems to have skype.
Will update you next from Malaysia.
Miss you all lots
Kirst and Lee xxx
