We are back in Bangkok now after what turned out to be a long and tiring day.

We set off on a boat from Koh Phangan to the mainland in monsoon conditions with downpouring rain and wind. We were crammed into a boat with over 300 people, with seats for 200. We made it through the brutal 4 hr journey thanks to Gravol! There were barf bags galore, filling up all around us... it was lovely.

Once we got to shore and boarded our bus it was smooth sailing. Got to Bangkok this morning at 430am wherewe luckly found a nice little hotel to sleep. Got our visas to Vietnam sorted out today and we fly there tomrrow afternoon.

We had a fun last few days on Koh Phangan. We checked out the ever famous Full Moon Party which was crazy. Twenty four hours of techno and drum and bass music combined with hundreds of bucket stands and 10 000 dancing people. It was quite the experience to be standing in the middle of it all, watching the sunrise.

re: barf bags
Bravo for the barf bags, I'm glad that you both are off the rough seas and crowded conditions and have had a good safe night's sleep! Enjoy Vietnam!
lots of love Mom and Pat.
