Up again super early today oh for a long lie, we get picked up at 8.30 by the bus, drive for 30 mins get off then wait for almost an hour at some streetside shop then get on another bus, drive for another 2 hours during that time we were absolutely BURSTING for the toilet – given that we were in the middle of nowhere the driver didn't have much choice but to pull over by the side of the road while myself Marc & Marsha get off to pee !!!!! In 4 months of bus journeying I guess its good going that this is the first time we have had to do this haha – when you got to go you got to go !

Back on the bus then it was time to get off that one again and wait for another 20 mins to get on a bigger coach, drive for an hour then it was a mad rush to get us off the bus to get onto the ferry in time!  We made it and 2.5 hours later we arrived at Ko Phangan and our wee pick up guy was waiting for us with a sign with my name on it 
 
We had treated ourselves for our stay here and got a beach front bungalow, ac, tv, fridge the lot - and its really nice we can see the sea from our bed.  Just a shame the weather seems to have turned and its a bit cloudy fingers crossed for more sun.

We headed out that night and met up with Marsha & Kurynn and the irish girls Kelly & Kylie and also Terry and Emma who we met back in China - ended up a proper session we headed up mellow mountain and hung out up there looking down on the beach - was a right giggle all night hehe.

Its not even full moon party night yet and already the place is awash with drunken people running around, people getting naked in the sea, people "making out" everywhere - defo plenty to see haha. 

The taxi situation is a bit of a nightmare you have to wait till its kinda full before it goes and even at that its expensive - not too bad for us but our mates live even further away up a massive hill dirt path - unfortunately the hotels dont tell you that when you book.  Wasn't too bad for us about a 15 min journey into Haadrin - rather be out of the chaos on the actual night.

The next night we just chilled and caught up on much needed sleep zzzzzzzzzzzz
