Hello from Paradise

Sorry for the delay in updating just been so busy with stuff I haven't had a chance.  But here I am now.

So my flight to Koh Samui was delayed by 3 hours but it gave me a chance to update the entries with some photos hope you've all gone back to have a look at them.  Coming in to land at Koh Samui was an experience.  We were about ten foot above the water and no land in sight but then all of a sudden there it was the most beautiful place I have ever visited.

The airport itself is a gorgeous liltle place, so lovely people were even taking pictures of the conveyor belt.

Got to the hotel just after 7:00, my room is just as it is on the internet, door opens onto the sea virtually...beautiful.

Stu's parents are here at the minute which is lovely as I have been spending every evening with them and Stu and Jep (Stu's girlfriend who is gorgeous).  On the first night we went into Chewang (the capital) and after a few drinks Stu took me to a ladyboy bar, Oh my God what an eye opener!!!

Monday I spent being lazy by the pool.  But Tuesday it was up with the lark and off to my first dive with Stu.  The viz was about 3-5 metres like being at home but very hot tho.  Some people including Stu dived in a t shirt and shorts!!!

Anyway saw lots of scorpion fish and other stuff.  But the next days dive was the best...20-30 metres viz with so much to see, barracuda, trigger fish, nudibranch, mushroom coral.  It was lovely.  The trip back was awful tho, felt every bump...thank God I wasn't sick!

It was Stu's birthday yesterday so we all went out and have a lovely meal in The Shack before heading to Chewang again for drinks until 2:00am.  Need to come home to give my liver a rest.

Got up early today and booked myself on a whirlwind Island tour.  Did everything in a day.  Off kayaking in the National Park tomorrow, Diving again on Saturday before flying off to Dubai on Sunday...can't believe it's nearly over.

Looking forward to seeing everyone tho

Anyway better go

Take Care all
