So we are now in Singapore Airport with lots of time to spare, so i thiought i would write a little blog to keep you all up to date with where we have been and what we are up to in the next few days.
Since I Last wrote, on the 13th june we have made it out of Vang Vieng and made our way back to Bangkok for a day. The city had totally changed in its political situation, and there were no riots at all, the area we were staying in Khao San was much more of a pleasure to be in this time.
We went and wacthed New Zealand pull out a draw with some girls we keep meeting along the way, one of them from New Zealand was very chuffed, then we headed to Pat Pong Matrket for the evening.....
The day after we left for the coast, and after taking a bus down to Surathani,n we took a boat ride to the island of Kao To, which is a m,assive tourist attraction for Divers, it was a shame our budget didnt stretch to go diving as everyone who came back from there morning dives raved about it!
Ko Tao isnt a massive island so the day after we arrived we walked most of it, heading up to some pretty wicked viewpoints along the way. We spent around 3 days on Ko Tao, and During one of our walks, we bumped into Pedro and Alrana, who we had been with in Vietnam and laos and ow thailand, we just literally bumped into them on the beach random as ever.
We left Ko Tao on the 20th June to get to Ko Phangan, for celebrations on the 21st for my Birthday!!! Again on the way on the ferry we bumpde into the girls, and once we reached, Ko phangahn ended up sharing 3 bunglaows, with making a group of about 8, which was a good number to stat the celebrations of for my B day. Quite surprisingly i was up early, and one of the girls urged me to go for a run on the beach which was a surprising start, but after my energetic start it got very lazy, we all went for breakfast and headed to the beach for the day spending about 3 housr lying in the sea, couldnt have been much better.
In the evening, i was very kindly treated to dinner, and we chilled on the balcony for a few housr before heading down to the main beach to celebrate, where things got tres amusant.
the rest of Ko Phangan was much of the same chilling on the beach, but the reson we were there is to see the full moon party, which was epic so many people loving life on the beach, till the sun rises. the day of the full moon party we tride to do a bit moer of a touristy thing and visted the waterfalls, however we fogot to remember that it was the dry season and when we got there, it was a rock fall!
The morning after the full moon party, two very tired lads, had to get up at around half 9, finsh packing and make our way to Phuket, aftyer a few emotional good byes with the guys and girls wed been spending out time with over the last few weeks in Asia, we took a ferry and 3 buses to Phuket airport, and slept in the airport terminal, on the floor before getting our flight at 9.55 to singapore.
At the moemtn we are wasting time feeling a little sorry for our tired bodeis but cxant wait to get to Bali, to exploer another area of Asia.
I hope everyone at home is still enjoying the blogs and enjoying sme nice weather over thee as well.
Peace in the Far east C&G xx
