I love this place! am already wishing I had booked to go to Korea from him so I could stay longer - or will DEFO come back here in high season LOVE IT!
After leaving Ko Samui - we hadnt realised we needed another cab then ferry to ko phangan then Ko Toa (omg took bloody ages) and with storms brewing and 4 meter waves over half the passengers were sick (sick bags were handed out to everyone) - half the crew were being sick..people were lying down ...sleeping... one was crying out (as if she were in labour) having a panic attack... OMG it was such a scene!! To be fair it was pretty scary with the waves welling up and throwing everyone about for over 2 hours but we all took travel sickness tablets (as we all felt sick after the last ferry ride- which was nothing in comparison) and as I say half the people in our group were ill from it - all part of the experience and all that (I half slept and half watched a movie that was playing to concerntrate on anything but the women to the left of me and infront of me puking - ewwwww cant even explain the sight of it ...horrific!)
Anyway Ko Toa... our resot THE SEASHELL resort id one of the most expensive places we have been to so much...with several swimming pools, a 20 sec walk from the beach and the beautiful scenery - well this is definitely the lefe :) had a proper sun bathing day ... enjoying the local food and town... saw a thai boxing matych (well 9 matches each with 3-5 rounds) - saw a bit of blood and 2 KO's - something I'm really glad we did ...but due to my lack of camera I cant / wont be able to show you guys - unless I get some copies!!
ooow I also got a lovely girly pedicure (150 baht - avbout 1 pound 30p) absolutely ace - this is more like it - pamering !!!!!! whoop whoop - sun set here is beautiful too- made sure I gave Gary a call while I was paddlig in the sea watching the sunset just to see how work was going ;) Im nice like that ..
The banana splits here are also to die for and the BBQ prawns and steaks on the beach - yummy... I know my dad would appreciate the food and sun... and my mum would enjoy the ferry ride due to her iron plad stomach of loving the waves and s***..and the beach - so parents book here to come on holiday - you would be loving it!!
I am sad to leave here today - buit also dont feel too bad as a tropical storm has just hit so we are back to extreme sun then extreme rain lol so Bangkok tomorrow (which I swear I have worn out...) for more pampering and shopping befiore south korea blap blap :)
