First week in Thailand and we survived!!
A week full of buckets, bites and a few boys- lesbians for Baker though!
First night in Bangkok was pretty chilled but still managed to see the manic nightlife and am looking forward to going back to there. While on the search for husbands thought of a super discreet way of spotting them 'found him!' No one will ever decode that.
Flew out to Koh Samui, I sat with a group of 'suns out guns out boys', plane was tiny and I was pretty sure we were gonna crash the whole way. Landed and went to meet Lucy in the 'hotel with a pool' which didn't come with a f***ing pool! But the jetlag hit home and we slept for the entire day, awoke just in time to get out and celebrate Bake's birthday. Cocktails went down nicely and we headed to a cool bar, met some cool South African guys and played 'heads up' with them- so rock and roll.
Next day headed to the beach and caught some of the rays, spoke to a few people and decided to follow the crowd and go to the full moon party! Downed a few more cocktails and a quick mixture of iced tea and vodka and we were ready to hit Koh Phanyan. Got to the speedboat port and had to wait ages, passed the time well with a few buckets and met some cool Aussie guys Zachary and Matt to hang with. Got on the speedboat to the full moon party, more buckets and the rest is a bit of a blur. Loosing shoes, fireworks, Lucy getting with girls, swimming in the sea and lots of dancing. Got the speedboat back, again pretty manic and we all felt a little like hunger games! After what we had planned for a quiet night we got home at 7.30 in the morning!
Slept most of the day, awoke ate food, napped, ate more and slept again- pretty much a standard right off New Year's Hangover Day except in the warm.
Headed to the beach the next day, got a bit of sunbathing in, then proceeded to complete our chores for the day- laundrette, booking tours, booking hotels, bank cards and a Thai massage- honestly this travelling malarkey is exhausting... Headed out for a quiet few drinks..buckets went down and we ended up at ARK bar again! Lots of dancing and meeting lots of people...some how got home and between pretty much devoured the whole crisp section in the shop!
'Do not drink the night before an excursion!!' All woke with a terrible hangover, managed to do a workout, think we were still drunk and then got some breakfast down us, then headed onto a sweaty bus- just what we needed...! Saw some cool temples and a guy throwing up outside in a bin, standard Thailand. Saw a big Buddha, a mummified monk and then a rock shaped like a penis and a vagina. Lastly saw a monkey and let it jump on our shoulders and then a waterfall. Managed to meet some cool people, see some cool sites and cleared the hangover so was a successful day. Early night with standard heads up game, and Hayley's thai deliciously of white toberlone ready for our journey to Koh Tao tomorrow.
Peace out homies!
