So today has been probably my least fun day travelling. I think everyone has to have a couple of bad days so I was due one really. We set off really late to see some caves, got very lost as their are no sign posts and eventually 'tubed' through a cave (as in we were on a tube but using a rope to drag ourselves along). The cave was pretty cool but by the time we got back to our tuk tuk there was absolutely no point going actual tubing as it would be dark soon. 

This was actually really annoying as the only reason I was in this bloody place was to GO tubing and Hannah and I have to leave tomorrow for the Four Thousand Islands. This was then coupled by a burgeoning headache. I decided to try and cheer myself up by doing a zip line into the water which resulted in me just aggravating my nose (I managed to whack myself on the top of my nose with my head torch the other day and it is therefore really bruised and swollen). This meant that the headache that was coming on had now hit me in full force. 

I also felt like shit because we had all come dressed for tubing i.e. in bikinis and shitty clothes we didn't mind getting wet whilst everyone else was dressed to go clubbing basically. I couldn't drink because of my head so was feeling pretty miserable and bored. One upside though was that I managed to get my leg spray painted with a cool star design. 

We eventually headed back where I sorted my headache and was feeling better, ready to go out for dinner and have a few drinks before we leave the group tomorrow. This was all going well until we went to a bucket bar where for some reason they have beams lower than my height. I managed to whack my head not once, but twice, in the same spot. So then I had a cut in my head, a new headache and felt all woozy. Not impressed. Decided to head home at 11 rather than suck the fun out of everyone as apparently whenever I tried to cheer myself up something else shitty happened so thought it was best to quit while I still had limbs or something. Somehow managed to obtain injuries (everyone is covered in them here), without actually tubing. Some kind of success I guess.
