Our flight into Koh Samui with Firefly was really good, it was a really good plane that even gave us food on such a short flight! We landed in the most beautiful, tropical airport.

We befriended two girls from London, Liz and 'The Problem’ (Liz because we actually remembered her name and ‘The Problem’ because she was extremely high maintenance, and also we couldn’t remember ...
