Arrived in Koh Samui at about 5pm last night, luckily the last ferry to Koh Phangnan was at 6:30 so I managed to meet up with Tom last night. We met at the guesthouse he was staying in on the west of the Island, Haad Son – a very quiet peaceful beach with hardly anyone about. A little too quiet in fact, we were the only ones in the bar! Today we’ve moved down to the South of the Island, near the town of Hat Rin where the Moon Parties are held. Hopefully should be a bit livelier tonight! Just been relaxing on the beach and swimming in the millpond calm sea this afternoon! Toms got a snorkel so had a go with that and its amazing to see loads of fish swimming so close to you – quite big ones too!
Sounds like Toms had a good time on Koh Tao, except when he rented a motorbike that he promptly fell off! He’s got a nasty graze down his leg and across his forehead – luckily he’s got a thick head so nothing to life threating!
Looks like England might be doing ok in the 2nd ashes test, go on lads! I get to Australia for the 3rd test so hoping that England are still in contention then! Two more days chilling out then off to Malaysia, there’s a Moon Party here on the 6th, but did that last year so fancy trying something different. Seems strange being 30 degrees in December, the plane I flew to Samui on was decorated with Father Christmas’s and Snowman – seemed kinda out of place to me!
