Hi folks sorry about the delay not had a min to go on the computer but yes we are both still alive an well :D here goes with the update.
Wed 14th Oct:
Early start picked up at 9am this morn to go on our boat trip around the islands, first stop was Maya beach which is where they filmed 'The Beach', bit of an ordeal getting there mind u the boat docked in the middle of the sea an we ahd to swim/snorkel over to a cargo net thing on the rocks - much to Fee's amusement lol but thankfuly she was able to get a kayak over wi one of the boat guys but still had to endure the mental rope climb honestly the Thai's have no interest in health an safety lol, after strugglin over the rope an walking through a rock pool in our bare feet we finally arrived at Maya beach - totally stunning but absolutely jam packed with tourists which kinda spoiled it to be honest, but still like paradise, had about 20mins here then kayaked back to the boat and headed to our next stop. Arrived at banboo island, honestly this place just jst keeps gettin better an better absolutely gorgeous an much more secluded an untouched than Maya.
With great delight I tell u that our wee Fee snorkelled all the way from the boat over to bamboo island with her flippers an lifejacket lol lol, dunno bout use but a was mega proud haha! :D she actually said she really enjoyed it which is even better, underwater was just amazin so clear an the multi colours of the fish an coral were amazin.
From there we went to Shark bay an snorkelled for toothless sharks, unfortunately I didnt see any but a few guys on the boat said they seen 2!
Next point was Monkey Island which as it says is an island where wikld monkeys live. what a laugh this was, first of all me an fee had t kayak-ourselves from the mid of the sea over to the beach needless to say we made it there ok an in one peace but not without crashin into our boat first haha!!
As soon as we arrived fee met some friends she bent down to look at a monkey an it ran up her arm an onto her shoulder lol this girl is attracting animals everywhere we go lol, chilled out with the monkeys an had a laugh watching them runnin about an then one tried to steal my sunglasses by runnin up my arm an onto my shoulders lol!
Headed hom from here an went for a sleep as we were gubbed, met a few english girls on the trip so met up with them in a place called reggae bar wher u can watch thai boxin an people volunteer to thai box for a free bucket of thai whisky mental!!! spent night here an then headed to a club on the beach.
Thurs 15th Oct:
Not much happenin today spent day lopungin at the pool an the girls came over so just chilled all day in the roastin sun :D then headed upto the viewpoint to see the sunset, its 184metres above sea level an man what a trek it was to get there took us about 30mins an involved climbin 374 steps at a 100degree vertical angle lol but was totally worth the blood sweat an tears as u will see from the pics the sunset was just amazin an the view was stunnin too, sat watching the sunset with a berr, bit mad to stay up there till the sun went down mind u as there was no lights an it was pitch black on the way back down lol thank god there was 4 of us!!
After our trek plan was to have a quiet night but hey ended up gettin in at 5.15am, what a laugh tho met up with a load a irish guys an girls an had such a good night, drinkin cocktail buckets an watching the nutters boxin again, then off to the beach for a party :D this place is the business!!! totalloy love phi phi dont want to leave :(

Today nothing but travelled, got picked up at 5.45am in our hotel in Phuket an arrived at our hotel in Penang at 6.45 pm, so not much to report, had to fly from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur as too dangerous to get the bus, an then had to go to a mental bus station to get our tickets to come to Penang, best thing about it is cost us 6quid each from KL to Penang an the chairs on the bus were like dentist chairs, so amzinan we both could sleep, why can plane's not be like this???!!! :( trip involved goin over the longest suspension bridge in South east asia - 2 miles long - erskine bridge no got a look in lol.
