Checked out of the White 2 and headed off to buy tickets for the Koh Lanta ferry from a travel agent, where we discovered the boat didn't depart until 11.30am so we went to our favourite haunt for brunch.

On the ferry to Koh Lanta we got talking to an Aussie traveller who, it turned out, had been Thai boxing on the first night we went to Reggae Bar - he said it had been the toughest thing he had ever done, and he was still reeling from the bruises of getting beaten by a sinewy guy in the ring. He also showed us an injury from coming off his scooter when pissed. We made a mental note not to ride a scooter when drunk.

Before we knew it we had docked in Koh Lanta and expertly negotiated the madding crowd to jump in a tuk-tuk to our accommodation Lanta New Beach Resort. The island had much more chilled vibes, perfect for a week of relaxing. We checked into our chalet by the beach and went to the laid back Friendship Bar for a drink looking out over the ocean. We were delighted to discover that the bar sold 'bang lassi' (milkshakes with 'hash'), happy shakes (milkshakes with 'shrooms'), and sold joints behind the bar. We took in the scene with a glass of wine and a happy stick and then went to our room perfectly relaxed.

Peace man!
