krabi, phi phi and koh tao
After malaysia jaff and i went to krabi, we met up with some girls that i was in koh samui with and all of us went to koh phi phi!
Koh phi phi was really good, totall party island! so we spent 5 days here! we also went on a boat trip to phi phi don( the beach) maya bay, which was stunning you cant stay on this island so it is all day trips that go over its about 15minute boat ride from koh phi phi. The boat stopped at another bay and we done kayaking and tubing here, arms were killing me there was 3 of us in the kayak but im convinced i was the only one rowing!
After 5 days of non stop partien it was time to leave phi phi dont think i could of stayed any longer, so we went back to Krabi, the weather was not as nice on the west coast( Andaman sea) as the wet season was approaching.In Krabi there was so many massage shops so we went and got thai massage and facials which were great, i think they were just emptien the contents of their fridge on my face , i had honey , cucumber , sugar and god knows what else. It was also jaffs 30th when we were in Krabi which was great!
After krabi jaff went home, so ann and i went back to koh tao small island on the east coast, absolutly love it there! So chilled out and beautiful beaches,
My friend Ann ( canadian) has family in a town called hua hin which was on the way back upto bangkok. forgot to say family that she has never met,
So we traveled to hua hin frim koh tao which had to b the funniest journey.. We got a boat to the mainland then decided to go local and get a bus so waiting at the bus station getting very strange looks, i tried some of the food that a woman was cooking- blew my mouth off!!! which the locals found quite amusing so after 4 bottles of water we went on the bus use that term loosely! It was a mini van so me and ann straight of koh tao beach island in bikinis jump in this van only to find it was full of monks! so cramped but the monks where up the front we got shoved at the back as the monks are not alloud to touch females- especially half naked ones lol!
Anns uncle married a thai woman and has children so we went to meet them only her uncle wasnt there so it was ann and i that went visitig, was such a strange experience her aunty did not speak great english so we spent the day at their house waiting for the children to finnish school during this day a few of her thai friends called round for massges and one friend came and got her hair cut all while me n ann were just sitting there! she basically cleared her table in the front room and the other woman lay down on it then she continued to start walking over her, they were very hospitable, made us dinner and constantly preparing weird fruits for us to try so many strange fruits most were nice but she gave us 1 that she had poured salt over actually nearly gag'd eating it but a still said it was ery good ! Then as if it couldnt get any more surreal a white old fat man walked in to 'collect' his wife - the one who was lying on the table. When me and ann left there was a few bars along the street all of them where packed with old white men- we were clearly in thai bride central- lol !! they were everywhere it was like a totall community of them.
my time in Asia is almost over i fly to sydney on the 31st may, cant believe 10 weeks has went so quick! have so many good memories and met so many good people.
In bangkok just now stayin on koh san road, which is great, stayin above a bar so our room practically vibrates because the music is so loud. Its anns last night tonight so going out to party!!!
Next blog will be from Australia!!
