Arrived in Sydney today after a delayed flight from Bangkok. We Left jack for his flight back to the Uk, but with all the snow he might not be back for a while!

We took the Ferry To Phi phi after a reasonable nights kip in the smelly hotel located in Phuket Town. The Ferry was rammed and we where forced to sit outside with the bags, but met a sweedish guy on there who I think drank more beer than water on his Holliday.

On arrival we where bombarded with touts for hotels, but eventually managed to find a bungalow in the hills made of bamboo where the trees and rocks of the hill where part of your room, quite quaint.

We hit the beach on the far side of phi phi which was hit badly the Tsunami in 2004 but was still a greatplace to relax before going out!

After chatting to a guy from london that evening he told us the best places to go and what to do. We ended up at a bar scrambling for free buckets in the bucket run where bars offer free buckets of booze for 10 minute spells. Later we drifted onto the beach where parties raged on until sunrise.

Somehow the next day we got up before 10.30am - The lack of aircon in the hut I think was the reason behind this!

After a full english from the little brittan bar we again chilled on the beach before hiring a long tail boat to take us Snorekelling of bamboo island to the North of Phi phi. The Trip took 3 hours and we visted several areas of coral with the most amazing aray of sealife we have ever seen! We also saw a sandshark. The trip was unfortunately marred by Dale Sharapton, who wept uncontrollably after being stung by a 'jellyfish'.

That evening we met up with a Canadian guy and two gal pals in reggae bar. The idea of the bar is to take on randoms in a ring for a free drink at everyone else's entertainment, this evening was also a test of Jack Noots will power as a Candian Stunner offerd to tuck him into bed, but his will power shone through and he passed with flying colours!

Again that evening we ended up at the beach Party and all ended up home at diffrent times - a good night had by all!

We woke the next day at a more reasonable time of 12pm, 1 hour late for our check out!

Our final Evening took us to Ma Ya bay on Koh phi lei island nex to phi phi. Ma ya bay if you diddnt know was the location used for the film the beach. We kayaked, snorkeled and jumped of the boat before ending th night on the beach with a few bevies, skinny dipping at night where the plankton glowed bright torquoise when the water was disturbed. We finished the night sleeping on the beach watching shooting stars pass by.

In all Phi phi was an amazing island it had a sureal feel to it as everyone was there for one reason, and that was to travel. Ive also never seen so many beautifull women on one island, and they where all sweedish, Canadian or Australlian mmmmmmmm.....
