      ... I am really enjoying my stay at this hostel - the wifi is great, there's a nice hangout space, good food, clean facilities, etc. I've lucked out with my hostels the last few places - Siem Reap, KL, and now KK all had absolutely fantastic hostels. Anyways, back to today. I got up and had breakfast - corn flakes and banana in milk with toast and jam on the side. Delicious. I had a little extra time in the morning so I did a few pieces of laundry in the sink and hung them ...

Home in time to relax in some aircon before we head out to dinner with Dr Ana, our supervisor, as a ...

      Jemima and Ollie also had a go at parasailing, which was immensely beautiful and fun. We especially enjoyed being partially dropped into the water for a bit of 'bare foot water skiing!'

      The hotel was incredibly beautiful, and our resident spot became some large round sun lounger/beds, where we were stationed, popping to the pool and sea to cool off. Yet, we can't really say the sea cooled you off as, at 29 degrees, it's more ...
