right so heres an update on the past few days. was REALLY disappointed with koh tau! i have heard so many awesome things about it and expected it to be really chilled out and relaxed and not busy. dont kno where that was but was far as i could see - the westerners outnumbered the thais by about 50 to 1! wasnt really what i was after. neverthe less, we made the most of it and went out on friday night. this was suprising actually as on the boat over g pretty much knocked herself out by walking into the television so we thought we would go for food and maybe a drink but it looked like too much fun and the girl we met jodie bought a bucket of some sangson stuff which after a few sips made us up for the night out! was a pretty good night all in all. lots of that random death drink was consumed (in bucket form - there was no option!) met loads of random travellers including a VERY drunk south african guy who i SWARE was canadian! when i asked him - he mumbled some rubbish, nearly fell over then said something about being swedish and english. so not canadian. blatantly a liar. then we met some irish guys who we ended up hanging out with for most of the night. unfortunately, we were so shattered that we didnt wake up the next day until about 2pm. anyway, saturday we pretty much chilled and played some cards. went for an amaretto before going to sleep tho (im SO addicted to that stuff!) anyway, as i wasnt too fussed with koh tau and wanted mae nam on samui back i decided to leave alltogether on sunday and got a boat to surat thani and then bus to krabi arriving in krabi about 9pm. met up with liz and we got some food. the place im staying atm is awesome! so SO clean and they give u nice towels and its just a huge luxury. but considering its only 400baht a night (6 pounds) its a huge bargain! liz was staying in some right dive last night so she is joining me tonight at the mansion place im in! tomorrow we are set to go to koh phi phi (spent a good hour this morning calling up loads of hostels over there and have finally found a place to stay. could be a potential dive. oh well!
hope everyone is well!
p.s. was CRAZY! in mae nam i was in the 7eleven and saw a girl i blatantly recognised - yeah that would be beacause she was in childs hall with me and did psychology with me! again - i think i need to learn to pay more attention! so chatted away and then i left samui etc. thehn she showed up again yesterday - she was getting the boat and bus to krabi also. was CRAZY!
