Another super fun bus journey involving multiple unnecessary stops in the middle of the night was had, however this time there were masses of leg room, seats that tilted back to almost horizontal and air con!
Following that it was a 4 hr boat ride to the island where i slept some more, and having sat on the top deck for 20 mins found out how intense the sun was! We both had sun cream on but it was patchy to say the least. Hav a good pic of amys blotchy burnt legs once i can add pics on here.
We arrived at our resort. Absolute Paradise! We hav a PINK bungalow right on the sea front with amazing views and palm trees with hammocks which is where the afternoon was spent. All the staff super friendly, only downside is the toilet is a bit basic. You have to pour a bucket of water down after use....hmmm.
Yesterday was the Black moon party, apparently theres no moon to be seen at all that night. I was a bit dubious and wary about going as most people (french) that we met were asking us whether we planned on taking speed, acid or weed, or all 3! They looked incredibly confused when we stated alcohol.
When it came to going we met up with a few people from our resort and all got on like a house on fire, canadians, new zealanders and a few Brits thrown in for good measure constituted a great night. It was all trancy music which at first we were unsure we'd be able to cope with til the early hours, however after a bucket or 2 of the infamous thai whisky and coke it was all gravy! We walked about 4 miles home though which prob helped us getting through today although dont worry mum, we werent too drunk and we were very careful!!
Today was another lazy beach day spent with Catherine a cornwall lass, so will hopefully meet up with her and a few others later on in the trip. Other than being attacked by a swarm of flying ants and chronic toothache which meant that my dinner tonight was soup through a straw because of jaw lock all is well...
Tomorrow we're off to Koh Tao just north of here to learn to scuba dive, looking forward to that and hope to update soon.
Hope all is well for y'all. xx
Am having difficulty loading pictures so sorry if you dont really want to read all this and just want to see the pretty pics, but im doing my best and will hopefully have them on here soon.
