Hello again.... have had a few complaints about not writing in a while...just like to point out im not a total loser thank u very much I have to do things to write on here!! This is only going to be brief i will come back and add to it later like i usually do!! Also it feels weird writing a blog to you guys, its like writing a story about my life, its not writing about an adventure anymore.
Well as you know i went to a surf competetion this weekend in Monanita...a bus ride which is supposed to take between 10 and 12 hours but because i guess of the accident (it was the same route and same company) it dragged out into 14 hours and then another bus of 1 hour. what a killer!! totally worth it tho. Monanita is a small town with like 2 main streets but mainly based on the beach. Surfers EVERYWHERE and when i say surfers i dont mean ur average Joe, these guys are GORGEOUS (and they know it but still) they are all ripped, long hair, boardshorts on and tanned (well ecuadorian but none of them are pasty like home.) Heaven doesnt even start to describe that place!!
We arrived in the boiling heat with dead legs from the second bus journey which was a nightmare, they just dont seem to understand the concept of speed bumps here!! We were staying in Feys best mates hostel wich was a bitout of th way and 3 of us were expected to sleep in a bunk bed. also, our en suite was a bathroom separated from the bedroom byu a canvas...no joke. wish we had taken a pic now!! to be fair not the end of the world. we got with it and hit the beach straight away...welll we cant come home without tans can we?!
On the beach we met an English guy called Chris and an Irish couple on their honeymoon (which has lasted a year and a half and they have seen the world...me...jealous?? never!!) on the Friday so had a bit of a take it easy night fri night (but with 2 cocktails for $3 thats really hard!!) didnt get in till 5 am the night consisted of many bars, a club and late night swimming for Carla and Chris! totally my fault appparently as i came up wit the idea and then backed out as i decided swimming at that time of the night would be cold...they still went in tho!!
We didnt quite make it back to our hostel we all crashed at Chris´ coz he has a hammock...dont ask how that works..also coz they were soaked and his place was closer...even then tho carla couldnt change..looking back our logic wasnt great!! i was knackered and ended up falling asleep on one of his many beds and didnt wake up till 11am...not impressed as we had planned to be down the beach at 8 am to catch the surf comp!! took great pleasure in waking carla up tho, she usually has to wake me!! plus our hostel was a bit out of the way and a total mess....when i say out of the way i mean a whole 5 min walk!!
Saturday just watched the surfing all day and chilled...when we eventually sorted ourselves out, was really nice, didnt involve any drinking during the day...or eating actually. it is so hot there you just eat so we drank batidos (fruit milkshakes) my personal fave was mora y fruitilla (raspberry and srawberry) they are just AMAZIN!! Sat night we hit a fair few bars, drank many a caipraiñas (i have no idea how to spell that) and they def got stronger as the night went on!! then there was a full moon party down the beach which was awesome!! the hangovers the next day wernt!! i managed to miss a step a slit my foot open :( not happy, have been limping all week and had to wear my sexy walking shoes coz my others were just agony. to top it off i had a cold!! and i broke my flip flop. sunday just wasnt my day!!!
I am so annoyed i was robbed of my phone today which means i can contact anyone at home except thru here but it means no chats. you have no idea how annoyed i actually am. and i was pickpocketed not robbed so i dont even have a decent story to tell.
