Soo sorry it's been so since my last post, I've been meaning to keep this blog running but it's been pretty hard to find Internet cafes when we're so busy doing stuff or quite far from one..
Anyway, since my lost post I finally met up with Emily in Chiang Mai, after not seeing her for about 4 months! Also Emily McCallister, Beca Mason and Siriol Leach were with her so was great to see them too. We had a grey time in Chiang Mai and were staying in a super nice hotel which although very expensive, was much needed after. Staying in some pretty crappy places in India. We were there for a couple of days then headed to Pai for a couple nights, Pai was really cool, went to a waterfall there and went swimming which was really nice. Then made our way back to Chiang Mai and got an overnight train down to Bangkok. There the girls all had a cooking course and we went shopping around te markets and met up with some family friends of Emily's who live out there an went for dinner with them which was really nice. We the. Went out on the Khaosan road which was pretty cool.
From Bangkok we then headed to Koh Tao where we stayed for 3 nights an we did an SSI open water scuba diving course which included 4 dives and training that means we are now qualifie divers! :) and the diving was amazing, literally like the best thing I've ever done. Also on our third dive we saw a whale shark! Biggest fish in the sea and it swam right over me about a metre away!!
Then we headed to Koh Pangan which was like a party island and went out on 2 I the 3 nights we stayed there. We then made our way Phuket for 2 nighs which was alright but out of season so it was dead..also Siriol left us there to make her way to Cairns in Australia so was weird to say goodbye so soon after meeting up.
We then made our way to Koh Phi Phi, the Islam on which they filmed 'The Beach' and it was beautiful, but sadly it was raining a lot of te time we were there, but on one day we went up to the view point where you got a view across the whole island which was really cool. Sadly we were only staying one night. Anyway we then moved to Koh Lanta, where I am currently. We only arrived yesterday so haven't done a lot other than go to the beach, it's really nice here, the place were staying is really cool. We've or like a hut thing made of wood for the 4 of us, but although cool, it also has LOTS of bugs, mainly cockroaches :(
Anyway sorry again it was so long, if I can I'll try and make sure it's not too long before I post again, and when I get to a computer I'll put up all my pics since leaving India. Will probs just put them all on Facebook instead of both so it takes half the time to put them up do if you wanna see pics, check my Facebook every now and again.
Ciao, Josh x
