Full Moon party was crazy!!!! I got there at 9pm and partied until I had to leave (begrudgingly) at 11am to get my tranfer to Ko Tao. Myself and 20 of us from Loy Fa bungalows joined the thousands of other people who made it to dance in the rain at Haad Rin beach. In some ways the rain made it a better experience but not in others as my camera hasn't been the same sinse. I was last last one out of our group to make it home in the morning after managing to lose everyone I went with but finding others that I have met along my travels.
I was unhappy to leave the next morning, simply because of the people I met and partied with. Next door but one to my bungalow were a fun group of guys that had me in stitches every second that I spent with them, wish I had more time with them. I met a bubbly couple from Vancouver who I hope I will see again when they visit London, everyone just made it amazing!
Anyway the rain came over to Ko Tao with me so I decided that diving visability probably wouldn't be as good. I am saving my money and using it as an excuse to come back! I wasn't staying in the busy strip of Ko Tao it was more of the divers side. But I found a small bar called Bhudda bar on the beach where I spent every evening with loads of other like minded people. It reminded me of the Queen Vic from Eastenders, everyone knew everyone else. Most people were english there and they were a really lovely crowd. Everyone I spoke to had planned to be there for a week but ended up staying at least 3 months! Apparently it is a very addictive place, I can see how. There are beautiful beaches and views from every location.
On my last night the gang INSISTED that we went into town as I hadn't been before. So it was the usual, several buckets, dancing all night and strolling in a 7 in the morning. You know the routine. Got to know a guy named Rob extremely well and we spent the next day recovering together on his hammock! He took me to a really lovely secluded beach where we had lunch and watched the sun set before I had to leave. It was a perfect way to remember the island.
