This morning charlie woke up with his sunburn hurting and itching a lot and couldn't move to much so today we unfortuneatly havent been able to do much and charlie has spent the day so far lieing face down on his bed covered in aftersun!
We arrived on the island late yesterday after noon and did a bit of haggling with the taxi driver to get us to the hostel (which charlie really enjoyed). In the end though we still ended up paying to much as the hostel turned out to be just round the corner from the ferry port (which we didn't know at the time). It is a nice hostel that we have got on koh Samui it has a small indoor swimming pool that I have just cleaned out before writing this(i just cant get away from my job!), so I'm going to go for a swim in a second. There is also a sauna but i think I'm sweating enough already!
After we arrived last night we went for walk down to the local town which by the map we had to go by could have been any distance so we saw a restaurant by
the side of the road and went there and we all had fried rice and chicken. The food was good but we couldn't work out if we were surposed to call the person serving us a waiter or waitress!?
After the meal we headed on down the road and surprise surprise to main town was around the next corner so we wandered down the main street and stopped of at a local supermarket to get some icecreams, this mornings breakfast and some water. There were also some good restraunts down the street so if Charlie is feeling up to it we will head down there tonight to get something to eat. We then headed back to hostel stopping off to speak to an owner of a local suit shop as he tried to persuade us we definatley need one of his best tailor made shirts which we didn't quite agree with and at a tourist information where we found some leaflets on elephant treks which we will try and do tomorrow.
There should be some pictures up with this post. The peddlo ride was in lumphini park in Bangkok which I dont think we mentioned in other posts.
And some of our other previous days activities like the snorkling/ jumping into the sea off the boat and train journey out of bangkok.
Hope you enjoyed reading
