Pics are on their way soonish! (the Big Buddah)
I have the good fortune of being the only one bitten by mozzies - that are heinous psycho poison bearers whos bite makes my ankle and calf swell up and hurt! (*$@^%@#*$
Ah well, I shouldnt complain - I'm not refusing cases so I'll suck it up!! hehe
We have departed Bangkok, after saying goodbye to dad (we will next see him in Croatia), and taking a mini bus to the airport to go to Koh Samui (Coconut Island). There was a HUGE storm last night with lightening cracks that woke us up but we did sleep well otherwise. Anyhoo. We got to the airport early, even though the bus was late, and after buying an overpriced packet of chips discovered our airline had a lounge area with free food, drinks, internet and books for us!!!!!! OH YEAH!!!!!! So we ate many many little sausage rolls and cakes and then ate the lunch on the plane. Needless to say we like to eat and we LOVE Thailand! Such good food, and beer, and cocktails in a bucket! The plane was propeller driven but went well, and we arrived to a grey but hot island. There are coconut trees everywhere, and we plan to eat alot of coconut laksas and drink lots of coconut shakes! We spoilt ourselves and got a bungalow near a pool and the beach, and hopefully the rainy season will give us some sun to tan! We have rented a scooter for 8 dollars a day and are cruising round like its Chapel street - so freaking cool...teehee...
