We're now in Koh Samui and we've been here for roughly 4 nights staying in a bungalow type accomodation, pretty much on the beach....
We've been chillin on the beach most days and ventured over to Koh Phangan for the full moon party. This is basically a party that happens every full moon hence the title. Its held on had rin beach which is packed full of bars, fire dancers, drunken tourists and most importantly buckets....to kick start the night we had flourescent body paint in the style of a flower for me and a gecko (a small lizard) for wes - we now looked the part!!
We met a really nice couple over there and spent most of the evening with them and a short while with random dan (some kid we aquired for an hour). We had a great night and partyed until 5am when wes had to drag me away from my plastic chair I was dancing on.....we then had to wade through the sea keeping our camera, money etc dry-ish to find our speedboat amongst about a dozen spead across the shore...this stressed wes out enough that he stripped down to his boxers in order to keep his nice new bench shorts from getting ruined (this was a very funny sight for me to watch). The next day we chilled out in the bung watching day time tv....
We have decided to leave tomorrow to head down to Singapore as our flight is on the 8th to Oz. The trip is extremely gruelling, its roughly 30 hours on a bus and ferry from here but alot cheaper than flying!
Wes woke up the other day to find he was covered in prickly heat (through factor 50!!!!), so he can now sympathise with both his sisters, he is now on anti histamine's and vitamin C tablets (he had the mother of all coldsores) I'm taking the Vit's for good health.
We hope everyones ok and the stray cat saga sorts its self out (wes said try kicking it or spraying it with orange peel/zest). Keep the blogs coming and we's update once we eventually hit Singapore.
Love to all Gem and Wes xx
