I woke up this morning to the sound of rain... Drew the curtains, and it was pissing it down, it didnt last long, and it was time for me to pack my stuff and check out of Big Blue 2.... Had a nice long shower, and found a geko trying to get in my rucksack! Ha ha. Decided to have a nice chilled morning, sorted out my accommodation for the next couple of days, and also managed to change my flights back to Bangkok on the 05th May!
Picked up my ADVANCED Diving card, and headed into the town where I was getting my transport to the Pier/ferry terminal! I had a bit of time to kill, and tried to get my hair cut, the only place that I could find was closed... Oh well, will have to keep the ginger mop a little longer. Found a nice Australian bar, and chilled for a bit, had Nachos..!! Wrote some postcards, and then went to my pick up point...
Arrived at the ferry terminal about 14:10, and checked in for my boat, and enjoyed the sunshine, boarded and had a 1 hour 30 minute journey on the boat!
*** Goodbye Koh Tao ***
The journey was quick, had my iphone playing music, and had a power nap! The boat arrived at the Thong Sala pier and I had to get a taxi down to the south of the island Haad Rin, this is the location of all the Full Moon Parties, it seems like they have parties all the time, which is pretty cool, but not here that long. Had a walk around the town, and finally got my barnett cut!!! It cost me £4.! She did a pretty good job! (I decided not to go for a skinhead! Maybe next time!). Had Pad Thai for dinner, and the bar was playing bridesmaids, so watches that before heading back to the hostel. I was just chilling, when the manager of Lazy House asked if I wanted to go down to the Outback bar, for a couple of drinks, and meet some of the other guys, staying at the same place. The hostel is nice, they like to cram in the beds tho...! As I'm not hear very long, I've booked a day trip for tomorrow, don't want to waste my short time here.
A little fact for people, today was a day of morning in Thailand, paying respect for a princess that died, which mean a load of the local Thai business were closed... Don't remember the UK doing anything for Diana.
