After a nice lie in we got up and went in search of some cheap food and found a local cafe serving a spicy papaya salad (without peanuts to Vikki's disgust!).

Hitting the pool we settled in for a day of sunbathing and swimming to carry on the theme of relaxation. Although Paula found it much easier to chill than the eternal 'fidgety grub' Vikki Kirkwood who had ants in her pants for most of the day...("Just sit still and let me sunbathe....!!")

Around dinner time we went to a roadside street seller (where you get the best and most authentic dishes) to get a takeaway. Vikki got pad thai and Paula (watching her waistline...) got noodle soup which was subsequently handed over in a plastic bag secured with an elastic band. Seeing the look on our faces the lady then lent us a bowl so that Paula didn't have to try and slurp it precariously from the bag!

Back in the room the food was rustic and tasty - and really cheap! Perfect to balance the Christmas and New Years overspend!

We chilled out in the chalet intermittently watching movies and planning the next island hop. We also thought it would be a good idea at this point to figure out how to avoid overstaying our Thai visa which is due to run out on 13th January! Wouldn't want any black marks to draw the wrong sort of attention to our international jet setting lifestyle....
