So are trip from Ko Phangan to Ko Tao was pretty good. We got lunch (Mexican pizza, strange in Thailand but really good) and our hotel picked us up
We spent the next few days doing little to nothing. Finding different places to eat and hanging out on the beach. There are some cool reggae bars in the area. We are surprised how reggae is so popular even in Thailand. Bob Marley really was the best. Most places also have magic mushroom shakes, coffee, cookies and even omelets (even family places) and NO, we haven't had any either. Basically, we've just been hanging out as usual on the islands. It's our vacation from our trip. It's been wonderful, but we both are ready to get back on the road.
One thing we will really miss about this place is the "Pancake Show". There is this little Thai man that has a cooker-hut thing attached to his motorbike. From 4pm until midnight he sits outside of 7-11 with a line of people ordering pancakes. They are soooo good. I always get the banana, chocolate, cinnamon one. He slaps and snaps his hands around and will even do a little dance if he's in the mood. So, we've been there everyday
While in Ko Tao we thought we'd treat ourselves to a massage. After each paying $7, we both had gotten 45 minute massages. Best part is that Brian's masseuse was a Ladyboy. Wikipedia describes a ladyboy as: "woman of the second kind" or "third gender" . Needless to say, Brian felt very uncomfortable from a few hours after wards.
We kept pushing off our leave date because we want to stay as long as we can in Thailand but to stay for another 2 weeks we have to do a visa run. So that's next on our To Do list. Should be interesting going to the country of Myanmar.
