So it's been a while folks! How are we all?
We've been having a grand old time in Thailand! been snorkelling on the SE coast, checking out the beach from 'the beach' on the SW coast and jungle trecking in the North......all well worth doing if you get a chance!
So much stuff has happened since the last post thats its hard to remember it all but i will try and fill you in a bit!
On Koh Pangan we learnt all about Koh Pangan tattoos, luckily we didn't get any though! not real tatoos but scars that hundreds if not thousands of backpackers get each year riding around the island on scooters. We laughed at this but it was su[rising just how many people we found who actually had fallen off scooters! Not only does it damage your pride and dent your wallet but some of the examples we saw were definately going to leave good scars! Lets just hope they make up a good story about how it happened!
Although we weren't on Koh Pangan for the full moon festival we did try to go to the black moon festival. Armed with what we thought was enough cas, a few pre-drinks and whole load of UV paint we headed to the beach. When we got there we were told we had to pay 10 quid to get onto the beach! We didn't even have enough money to get in. Luckily a few pf the guys we were with were in the same position so they offered to go to the cash point and lend everyone some money. Ben returned twenty minutes or so later breathing pretty heavily. The taxi he went to ATM in had driven him down a dodgy back road on the way back and mugged him.....that was the end of our black moon experience. Instead we went back to the hostel and drank a shed load of vodka which defiantely cheered everyone up!
plenty more stories from the west coast to follow......
