    This was our first hotel in Koh Samui and we were based just outside the lively part of Koh Samui, in Chaweng.

    The hotel was actually much nicer than we expected it to be and our room was really modern and quite spacious. Our hotel had it's own private beach........

    We were only a ten minute walk into the main street in Chaweng which was probably the most westernise area we had been to in a long time and was the party area in Koh Samui but also had many other shops including massage parlours, shops selling fake clothing, perfumes and watches, suit shops, McDonalds, Burger King and everything else you can imagine!

    We were glad we were staying in the quieter area of Chaweng as we were close to everything that we needed and the hotel was prefect for us!

    ... be back behind a wheel. One of the best things we have done while travelling again! It was so good to do something so different and see so much more. We even done a Tesco shop. Yes literally we went into a Tesco and shopped. Expect when we tried to get some vodka and where told no one could buy alcohol as it was a religious day called Budda. Gutted because the litre bottle of absolute vodka only cost £15. So loading our truck up with a load of stuff back to the hotel we went ...

    A day that definitely didn't go as planned....

    ... for dear life. It was hilarious. They drove us up to this viewing point and temple. However, the rain caused a huge fog and we were not really able to see anything. So we headed back into the jeeps and toured around a bit more. The driving around really was an amazing day, thank god. As I think with so much going wrong with the day, it would have been easy (and I think justified, to be honest) to simply feel like that was a horrible day and be quite negative about the ...

    ... I came back to the lounge one needed a membership card to unlock it. Which I didn't have. Sunny was asleep by then, so first class became second after all. I gladly would have joined Alice, if I hadn't been sunburned yesterday. It was saver to stay out of the sun even wearing a t-shirt covering my burned shoulders. After half an hour the sun became too hot for Alice and as Sunny woke up we could enjoy the first class. It's a 1,5 hour trip to the mainland, and ...

    ... straight into the sea. The water was very shallow so we floated out to the deeper water and I found lots of sea cucumbers which we were playing with for ages and we were generally floating around and chilling, after laying on the beach and drinking beers we headed back to the bungalow to watch the sun set. That evening we had dinner and banana daquiris at a beach front restaurant at the end of our bay, then had a mojito at our bar, whilst watching ...
