We drove up to Surat Thani from Satun to meet up with Scott's friend Glen and his partner Jo who are over on holiday. It's a nice drive up and I'm looking forward to a few days away from the yard. It's been a few years since I have been in Koh Samui but I enjoyed it the last time and looking forward to meeting new friends.
