Well, today we had a really cool day - we hired a motorbike!!! wooohooo! Its only a little rev and go type thing, but still it was a really cool way to explore the island. We set off at about 10am, and by 3pm we had driven the whole way around koh samui, it is beautiful. Think we both didnt realise just how much the sun gets through even when you are cool with the wind blowing - so we have got extremely burnt on our shoulders - poooooooooo!

WE stoppped off at a few places, and bought some clothes, chris needed a new t-shirt as his white one he bought is now brown! hahaha, and i needed some new trousers as i split my others! ooops 😞

We then tried to get onto Chaweng beach, but it proved to be impossible as it was mega busy and all the hotels back onto the beach, but we had lunch and then headed to our hotel for our own beach.

Tried to go in the sea, but as soon as we began to wade through the rocks in the water, i stabbed my foot on a shell and it realy really hurt - so first aid kit came out (good job we read that book!!!!) and chris patched me up! So, chris started to dig for crabs, he found one little one in a hole, but then he found a great big crab hole, but no crab!

Just found out that our bike has a flat tyre, think it was our fault, as the inner tube was hanging out -oh dear! thank god the taxi driver told us. Chris tried to take it back for another one, but they were giving him some rubbish about not having any! so, we will have to eat at the same place again - bugger! Was getting used to having some wheels!

Off to eat now! slaters alligators!
