We hope you're all in the christmas spirit and got all your shopping done?!
We've had a crazy time in Koh Phangan and met loads of great people. The low down is as follows:
Saturday 18th - Flew into Koh Samui and got the bumpy ferry straight to Koh Phangan - checked into our hotel which was lovely and plush (Danny pre-booked as island gets packed!)
Sunday 19th - Hired a moped and checked out the island - saw a lovely waterfall (pic to be uploaded) and spent the rest of the day by the hotel pool
Monday 20th - More exploring on the moped - stopped off and did Archery for the first time (I started off quite well but Danny got two bulls eyes on his last go so lunch was on me :(Headed back to the local chill out bar and watched the "Beach" just to reminisce about our time in Phi Phi!
Went for a dinner at a buzzing Mexican restaurant where we met a crazy Australian girl who painted us up in neon paints - then went on to a great pool party where we got pushed in hundreds of times, drank buckets and had wrestling matches whilst on our new found friend's shoulders!
Tuesday 21st - Hang overs from hell! Met up with some guys from the night before for lunch and slept most of the day ready for the Full Moon Party!! Had about 7 different calls from randoms we must have given our number out to the night before -eek! Tuesday night - A couple of lads (and Martyn from Volume and his girlfriend Suzie) got to our hotel room for about 10 where we drank a massive ( and I mean normal sized bucket of Vodka and red bull) - was really hard to get down as me and Danny still felt sick from the night before! Anyway arrived at the beach around 12pm and the rave was in full swing - took a trip up to Mellow Mountain and watched some crazy people on mushroom shakes - hilarious. Other than this we have peiced together the following that we can remember: people getting it on- on the beach. People jumping into the fire skipping rope and getting burnt (naughty but so funny to watch!). A lady boy throwing a bottle at an English boy because he refused errr...him, meeting a guy from Reading who knows my cousin Hannah really well and lastrly random flash backs of mine and Danny's gimp rave dancing!!
Wednesday 22nd - Hello Hang over number 2! Danny and I got up about 1pm and decided to treat ourselves to full body oil massages, pedicures and foot massages as we'd worked ourselves pretty hard with all our partying lol! Pigged out on loads of Thai food with our Australian friend Bret (who actually couldn't touch his food in the end) couple of drinks (soft for me) in the chill out bar and then an early night!
Thursday 23rd (today) - Checked out of our hotel and caught the ferry to Koh Tao (took about an hour and 45 minutes) arrived at a hotel we'd arranged to stay at through a guy at the pier - room was really bad :( We should have known as the accomodation is free - because Danny is getting his Padi/diving license - the room was just so damp, smelly and dark so we have upgraded (for 2,000 BHT a night) to a weenie bungalow - but at least it's clean! We are planning to stay in Koh Tao for 3 nights so Danny can complete his course (however there is a theory tomorrow morning so we may just last the one night as not sure how likely he is to pass it lol!) I'm going out on the boat with him and the diving crew on Saturday to do some snorkelling and keep myself busy xmas day (when I'm not skyping the family of course x)
Had a wicked time in Koh Phangan on the whole and really was one hell of an experience! Will upload the photos once we get to a cafe that can read our memory card - So keep an eye out!
Will update you all on our travels once we get to Koh Samui on boxing day - have great Christmas'!!
Lots of love and Chow for Now,
Meika & Danny
