After Bangkok, we travelled down to Ko Phangan for the full moon party. Its held once a month (on the full moon suprisingly enough!- usually the 13th) and is basically a massive party on haad rin beach.

We arrived on the 10th may to get accommodation (coz everything gets booked up really quickly) and ended up staying in laem son bungalows, whihc were about 40 mins outside haad rin (its better to stay a bit further away coz a lot of people get stuff stolen). Stayed in these seriously cute bungalows which were on the beach. It was a pretty quiet place really, nice though.

First night we were there we went to the bar with some canadian lads that we had met. Ended up drinking far too many whiskey buckets which is never good coz they completely wipe any memories of the night! (well they do with me, jem, anyway.........) Me and kat somehow managed to get lost on the beach, even though the bar was about 50 yards away from our bungalow! Finally got home at 5am after realising that i'd lost my purse- nightmare as it had my bank card in it! Was just about to cancel the card the next day when somehow the missing purse turned up outside the canadian boys bungalow, in one of their hammocks! Apparently (and i've just found this out now!), theres a photo on johns camera of me and zoe lying on the floor underneath a bar stool hugging each other like 2 drunken idiots! hmmm..

So, full moon night.... What a crazy night- it was amazing! Me, zo and kat all went dressed the same and quickly became known as 'the same same girls'. We had pink rara skirts, t-shirts that said 'same same but different' (a thai thing) and the sexy tevas of course! I also had a duck off khao san road that i was quacking in everyones faces- i thought it was funny anyway! Loads of us headed down to haad rin and we knew it was gonna be busy but it was still shocking, about 10,000 people all partying on one stretch of sand! There was loads of bars with hundreds of buckets lined up with whiskey and vodka in. We'd vowed to stay off the whiskey in order to have some sort of memory of the night but think we had a bucket in our hand about 10 mins after arriving at the beach! Spent the night dancing on the bar and avoiding these 3 brazilian men that kept chasing us! We were having such a wicked time but, as usual, things got messy later on. My poor duck had been quacked that much that all of a sudden there was a duck explosion! its beak and squeeker fell off and it fell in the sea (i was very upset)! Zoe also had some serious foot slicing issues! We were in the sea in the middle of the night and somehow she managed to stand on a rock and slice all her toes which were then bleeding everywhere! Nurse mary was luckily on hand the next day to do some bandaging. After full moon party, me and zo went on a serious troffing session in haad rin and managed to eat a massive sandwich and pancake each and then nearly threw up in the back of the pick up truck on the way home (about 8am)- nice.

We all left ko phagnan 2 days after full moon party and unfortunately our little group had to split up for a bit. We all went to ko samui but zo, kat and john were going to ko tao and me and mary were heading to the southern islands so that mary could fly home from phuket.....
