We are home! Honestly I don't think were ever coming back to Canada. Were loving it. Cory Leslie and I left from Chiang Mai the other day on a night train to bangkok and then jumped on another one to Surrathani in the south. We got a boat to the beautiful island of Koh Samuii to meet Greg. Greg wasn't on Koh Samuii, Greg was on Koh Phangan...miscommunication. Anyway the three of us jumped on bikes and cruised accross town to catch another boat to Koh Phangan. We had thirty minutes to departure and a twenty five minute bike ride accross the island to the port. We cruised! It was so much fun...my driver was racing Cory's driver the whole way. it ws crazy, these people know how to drive bikes, in and out of traffic in opposing lanes, passing on both sides, and the whole time not wearing any helmets.
So anyway Cory, Leslie and I met up with Greg in Koh Phangan here for the full moon party taking place in a couple days. Its beautiful here. I tell ya... Its definately a fun place...but.... Its very set up for tourists...i guess much like the rest of Thailand now. We might as well be in at a Mexican resort or someplace like that. Nevertheless were enjoying it for the time being. But We'll be anxious to go someplace with less people after. There are party people everywhere...they say this full moon party is gonna be something like 20,000 people ripping it up on the beach all night drinking copious amounts of booze out of colored buckets. The reason i know all this is because we spent all night last night at the full moon WARM UP party doing the same. Theres one like that every night until the full moon. I don't know if i'll MAKE it too the full moon party. All is good though...plenty of time in the day to recupe and chill on the beach looking at all the beautiful scenery(hehheh).
Anyway Greg, Leslie and I already got burnt on the first day of being here. Cory so far has avoided it...for now. Its inevitable though. this place is cooking, i got burnt with spf 30 on
Anyway I am trying to put some pictures on this thing finally...fingers crossed, i tried to put on a video but it didn't work. Keep trying. I got some on the Chiang Mai entry..check em out. anyway all goodfopr us, we will spend only a few days here and after the full moon party we'll head to Koh Tao for some diving. After that we'll head west to Krabi and Koh Phi Phi for some more beautiful beaches, diving and climbing.
So take care and hope to hear from everyone soon. We love the comments everyone has been leaving, thanks and keep em coming.
