Feeling a bit tired and rough from our bucket drinking last night we got on the ferry heading for Ao Nang via Krabi as always this involves a series of bus/boat/bus trips. You hand over your ticket and then get a sticker that has your destination on it so everyone just looks like schoolkids all stickered up incase they get lost– who knows what happens if you loose your sticker haha.  Last night our friend Kurynn met some people who had 3 tickets to Ao Nang but didn't need them so we only had to buy one for the 4 of us - total result   

We sat up top on the boat with our legs dangling off the side as it was not too hot and really nice just to chill out for a couple of hours – we arrived at Krabi and thanks to our stickers got straight into a minivan that dtopped us right at the door of our hotel in Ao Nang.  As it turns out Ao Nang is beautiful really peaceful as its quiet season you can walk donw the street with no hassle and has the sea on the opposite side of the road that's beautiful and blue, the beach is just tiny – no loungers or tourists just a nice wee beach.Marsha & Corrin also decided to stay at the place we had booked too it was like luxury compared to the last place we had nice wee seats to sit on in the garden area outside our rooms, free breakfast of tea & toast, clean towels and plugs to charge our things unlike the last place haha.  We went out for a wander and after some great haggling we booked ourselves on the 4 Islands Boat trip and also a half day of Kayakuing the day afer – cant wait.  On the way back us girls went for a massage while Marc went to catch up on his sleep hehe.

That night Marc & I went to a Brazilian restaurant for dinner, all you can eat salad and meat for 8 each and after 4 months of travel and cheap food we were well in need of a steak/meat fix – it was delicious we ate sooooo much we couldn’t move.
