So I left it that we were in Thailand, we have been here for a week or so now and it's been raining non stop guys!! We got up at 5am for our bus trip it was meant to be 6 hours but took about 7 in total, but it wasn't bad at all really. We slept a lot of the way as it was so early. Because we were delayed though we had no time between the boat and bus and were straight on the catamaran for the 2nd part of the journey. Now, this is where the gross bit happens I'm afraid guys. We got on put our bags away and sat down, it was soooo choppy out though and we could feel every tiny movement. Well I definitely could. Within about 20 minutes I was out the back unfortunately pretty sea sick! I had only ever been ill once before so didn't think anything of the boat ride but this was awful. It wasn't just me though half the boat were ill due to the weather and how choppy the sea was. Poor brad had to look after me the whole way and as I said to him
I think me throwing up in a bag over his feet might have cemented the relationship lol. The crew were prepared though walking around is bags for everyone and they also had some kind of oil they were running on people wrists. About two thirds of the way in one of the senior members on the boat sat me down at the back and told me to focus on something far away, this helped so much and thank god I wasn't sick again!!
That part over we got to our hotel and chilled as we had the full moon party the next night. We were really looking forward to it but a bit worried because of the rain and Sunday morning it was pretty much the same. It rained a lot of the day but we amused ourselves with card games lol. We also needed to get ready for the party with body paint. Alex is an amazing little artist so she did all of us!! Me and her were matching and had leopard print in pink, yellow, green and black it was soooo good!!! Brad decided to have a snake up his arm and Matt had the Tyson
on his face and some tiger print. So many people commented on our body paint it was amazing and I hope Alex was proud because we all were! Once at the party it was unreal a massive party on a boat bars everywhere, fire shows and body painting. It was another world!! I still felt rough from the day before so I'd love to go back feeling on top form as I didn't get the most out of it I don't think! But it was a great night brad even got a dragon done on the other side of his body so his snake and dragon were having a 'face off' in his words lol. We already know we want to come back to Thailand when it's sunny ha and would definitely go back to the party but wouldn't stay in Koh Pagnagn for too long as we all felt that's all it was about. The next night we went for dinner and everywhere was dead so we were glad to be leaving the next day for Koh Tao, a smaller island in between Ko Samui and Koh Pagnagn.
This meant another boat trip but this time I took
motion sickness tablets and felt fine! Although we were on the last boat of the day and it was totally oversold we had to stand the whole way and people were even on the stairs, pretty dangerous really!! I felt so sorry for all the people that were ill this time as it was pretty much the same scenario! We checked into our hotel though and it was beautiful. Me and brad felt like we were in a little tree house over looking the sea!! Only thing was we had no hot water!! We thought something must have been wrong so just used the cold water and left it till the next day and it was the same!! We then figured out it was an Eco resort and only the villas had hot water haha. So basically we weren't good enough for hot running water lol. It was ok though we were only there for 2 nights and moving onto another hotel the other side of the island.
It's such a shame about the weather though because it's such a beautiful island but we are so restricted in what we can do! It's well known for diving here too
and we can't even do that so it's a bit disappointing. The boys kept themselves amused though by fishing one afternoon helping a local family fish for their dinner. We've already planned to come back for Brads birthday in 2015 haha! It's too beautiful to not want to come back really. The beach is so cool too loads of chilled hippie type bars. But as I write this we are stuck in the room while there's a massive thunder storm outside. It's so annoying but we will be in Australia soon and Asia will over already!!
Alex and Matt left for samui a day before us so we get there tomorrow and are praying for some sunshine!!
Talk soon love B&K xxxxxxx
