By Alice Roughton Sat on a beach outside our hostel in Koh Tao, it was strange to think that the last time I'd seen Gael was to wave her off on her around the world trip from our little flat in Sheffield almost six months ago. Months prior to her jetting off with a one way ticket to Rio we'd been speculating about all the crazy antics she'd get up to over the course of her travels; snogging Aussie surfers, befriending llamas, getting drunk ...

This afternoon Lauren and I went for more massages and Kate and ...

We had such a carb fest and ate as much as we possibly could before we started feeling sick. Later on, before our usual Sex and the City marathon, we thought it might be a good idea to give Dan a bit of a haircut. Now I never said I was a hairdresser!! And we found out quite quickly, that I wasn't ever going to be. I have no ...
