moved onto the next island now, koh phangan. its inbetween koh samui and koh tao and is famous for holding 'the full moon party' every month on the full moon (big party on the beach)
its very pretty here, we are staying in the north, the opposite side to the party so we can get some peace when we are not partying! we are staying in sum very cute beach bunglows built on the sand about 3 metres from the sea so you can imagine how lovely it is! also we have hammocks on our balconys which are very chilling!! howveer, there are cockroaches in the room which is horrible!! its a very hot day today so i have come to cool down in the computer room where the air con is, gonna go for a swim after in the sea!
we arrived on this island on friday and had a wicked day exploring where we were staying and sitting on the beach by the bar on these big cushions! yesterday was a really fun day, we finally managed to hire some kyaks and went out round this little island by where we are staying, it was knackering but good fun. we then bought some snorkels and went out by the rocks but the visibilty wasnt great so we didnt see much.
last night we went to the warm up party for the full moon party and stayed out drinking and dancing until this morning! it was a wicked party, they use fire for lots of activites like limbo where the limbo stick is fire and skipping ropes of fire and things. i dont know how they do it but people touched the fire loads of times but it doesnt really burn you just makes a black mark. we were raving to lots of dance tunes on the beach with buckets of alcohol and it was a real laugh. tonight is the real party so should be another good night. we are also meeting up with lots of our friends from chiang mai which will almost feel like seeing people from home i think!! really looking forward to that!
we have two more nights on this island and ten on tues morn we make our way to the west islands goign to krabi for 2 nights and then phi phi for 2 nights which is where the beach was filmed and looks gorrrrgeous! only 6 days left until we leave for sydney, cannot wait for a bit of western culture haha
still missing you all tons but its still going so fast, nearly been away a month now its madness. almost a quarter of the way there until christmas when i get to see everybody again!!
lots of loves x x x
