So we woke up on the bus in the morning to find out we had been taken to Surat Thani instead of Chumphon like we were suppose to. The bus had made a stop at about 5 in the morning but they hadn't let anyone off and then left again. Turned out that was our stop in Chumphon but there was no one there or the boat wasn't running...or something, we don't know. So now we were at a town much farther south than the island we were trying to get to and instead of taking a direct 1 hr boat we had to take a boat directly back up north and stop at two islands with a transfer to a different boat before we finished our now 3 1/2hr journey to our island. Bummer
Besides just being long the trip wasn't all that horrible and we made it with no real complications. We checked into our new accomodations, had some supper, and then pretty much just went back to the room and passed out for the night.
