My new accomodation at Porn resort (Sunset Beach)
The rest of Ko Lipe and to Ko Mook (30th & 31st March 2008)
Feel much better today after my very early night the previous day. Looking forward to a very very lazy day.
On route to the village i called off at the Jungle bar and had breakfast. Yummy, it was so good and made a nice change to getting the inedible crap from ko Lipe resort.
I needed to check my emails to see if fabieene has in touch and to find out what her plans are. I had received a mail and it advised me she was on route to the south of thailand. I wasnt sure if this meant she was due to arrive in Ko Lipe today or tomorrow or not. If it did mean this, there was a problem as i was leaving ko Lipe tomorrow morning for Ko Mook. Later in the day a thai person let me borrow there mobile phone so i sent a text to her detailing my plans - hopefully all will now be okay if she received it!
The rest of the day i relaxed on sunset beach and then moved to cosy cove later

in the afternoon. My peace and tranquiity was quickly interupted at cosy cove by a young girl from manchester who asked my 101 questions and a couple of young thai kids who found it funny to climb all over me. To enjoy the sunset i though id go back to my beach at Sunset beach so i thought id take the route back along the beach and rocks. I could see a thai guy in the distance sat on crouched on some rocks. A few minutes later when i arrived to spot he was i discovered a lovely big fresh smelly shit that we had done and left!!! Nice!
After a shot walk and climb i arrived at my resort and sat on the beach waiting for the sunset. Again my peace was short lived. Again i got harrassed by a group of thai children, again they found it such good fun jumping all over my back. Luckily this wasnt endured for too long as there dad must have noticed my annoyance and called them away. As it happens the sunset was pretty poo so i wouldnt have missed anything.
I was contemplating going for a walk around
cosy cove at ko lipe
to pattaya to see Chris and Sarah but believe it or not after such a demanding day i felt a bit lathagic and tired and thought id have a little nap first. 12 hours later i woke up and it was the next day. Like ive said before, its a hard life! My only reasoning for this is i think i was still recoving from the nightout when i had way toooooov many chang beers - dangerous stuff that chang beer.
That morning of the 31st, i walked around the other side of the island to pattaya and called in at the lipe resort to see if Chris and Sarah were there.. They were up and also leaving today. We all had breakfast together and said our goodbyes. Hopefully one day ill get chance to get over to Sweden and see them again as they were a really nice cool people.
My Ferry was leaving at 10.30...ish from the east side of the island, so along with about another 14 people we had to all sqeeze into a long boat with all our luggage and get transported to the ferry. This was pretty scraey stuff. The boat had
cosy cove at ko lipe
so much weight in it the water was pretty clode to go over the sides and into the boat and every time the bot did a turn the boat tilted and i sware was going to tip up. I wasnt too worried about my life as i could swim to sure i was more worried about all my belongings and electrical stuff (ie camera) that were sure to get wet and ruined! Any way to much relief, somehow we made it to the ferry. Getting on the ferry did not fill me with any confidence - it didnt look worthy or safe to travel down a canal never mind the open seas which were quite rough today.
Of we went and Ko lipe disappeared in the distance. The seagot rougher and rougher as we got more and more into the open water. Along with a few other people i was sat on the open top deck. the boat was rocking side to side, the front of the boat up nd down, nose diving into the sea. Scarey shit let me tell you! There were quite a few worried faces on that boat and mine was one of them. I

looked around to check the life rings and for the life jackets - guess what, no life jackets lol.
Luckily, again very relieved and after a boat transfer at Trang Jetty I arrived in Ko Mook but on the wrong side of the island. This is the first ime i met Roody and his wife (dutch couple) and there 2 year old Son.
There were about 10 of us who got off for ko Mook and we all had about a 2km walk to the other side. I'd walked about 200meters when a thai guy on a motorbike stopped with a side car and i got a lift from him (well worth the 50B). I felf really guilty and lazy going pass all the other people who were on the boat and had walked and her huffing and puffing and sweating. By the time they got to the other side I was sat in the restaurant having a red thai curry and cool beer.
The bungalow was only 300B. It was again very basic, like most budget places i have come across. it had a massive bed, unfortuneately it was very hard and not very comfy.

Nevermind it is only for 1 night.
Walked to beach and through Charlie resort. First impressions of Ko mook, again very nice, beautiful beach & water, quiet, secluded. I like it!
That night i ate at the resort i was staying. All the staff there and family who run it are so so nice and friendly. always offering advisd and help. My dinner again and like the red thai curry id had for lunch was beautiful. This was the first time the guy who works there and the guy who gave em a lift on his motorbike claimed the food is best in Asia. Its got to be up there!
Similiar to previous nights my pillow was calling my name pretty soon and it was still relatively early, maybe 8.30 or so. My head was soon on the pillow and i was soon giving it the ZZZZZzzzzz's
