sorry it as been a while since i last updated just been really busy with one thing or another.
Koh Tao was a lovely little island. It isnt as build up as the rest of the Islands which is nice because you go to Thailand to see something different. It is mainly a diving resort everywhere you turn you have dive shops and accomodation to go with the dive shops. Unfortunately it heavily rained the whole time we were there which made the sea really dark and you couldnt really see anything. We were advised not to bother doing the PADI course by the some people we had met that had done the dives and was told that it was a waste of money so we didnt get to dive. To be honest we spent four days there and there is nothing to do at all if it is raining, you go there to dive and other than that there isnt anything else to do. We went out one night to a irish bar and met an irish guy and ended up getting extremely drunk. He kept buying me and woody drinks then on to the whisky was not pretty. We then went to a beach bar which was quite good and danced around met two lasses and one of them was ace doing all sorts of skilful dancing moves like me. (For anyone who hasnt seen me dance im far from skilful just daft) anyway she was a good laugh and got talking to loads of people there. The day after was a write off we were both so poorly. We walked round the Island and woody went out and got wrecked the day after that and didnt come home until late waking me up telling me him and this guy was having a dance off etc and didnt shut up for ages. That is about it for Koh Tao really we were either drunk or recovering from the drink. I have a video of the extent of the rain and the road was flowing well fast with water like a river it was horrible because you couldnt tell if you were walking through sewage or anything. Nice Island though and would have liked to be able to dive but these things happen.
lots of love Gem xxxxxxxxxxxx
