Today was friggin awesome. Even though as a general rule i don't like the touristy places i actually really like this place. Like ive already said it’s so chilled out n it’s totally me....still cant believe how many dudes with dreads im seein here...lovin it lol :-P.

So today was the day for what is called tubing...if you don’t know wot it is look it up online. I wasn’t sure wot 2 expect, all i was told is that u go down a river n get pulled in2 loadsa bars down the river.Obviously me not drinkin i wasn’t sure if there’s n e point in me doing it. I’m so glad i did...it was my best day so far. Basically picture a river n loadsa typical traveller type people in big rubber rings flowing down it. U get thrown bottles attached 2 a rope 2 pull u in2 the river bars......the amount of free alcohol available was crazy n if u wanted a hash cake thats the place to be lol....altho they did look like really tasty chocolate cakes 2 b honest J. Flowing down the river wasn’t enough 4 me, n i became my lil child self when i saw the 20ft high rope swings above the river......AWESOME!! We were advised not to go on them so obviously i had to.They were like trapeze’s that went over the river n then u drop down in2 it....some parts of the river u cldnt even tell if it was deep enough 2 drop in, but hey ho u worry bout that when u hit the bottom from a height of 20ft lol.........i think it was the first time every1 saw my actual crazy me 2day.....me bein me i had to throw multiple somersaults off the ropes in to the river...it was friggin amazing....even when i did swallow loadsa the water.There were loadsa awesome ppl here n it was mental......not only were there rope swings, but there were lil slides too!!! O yh i was rockin out the crazy shoddy built slides. LOVE IT.

 I cant believe how easy it is 2 talk 2 random ppl when ure doin this, n the random Japanese doctor dudes that i was talkin 2 down the river in my tube were ace. WOO HOO i actually managed 2 get some exercise...especially with the 3km ride to the bottom, which when ure jus usin ure arms in a rubber ring can b pretty tiring. The weirdest thing is where you go through the 'local’ bit of the river n the locals take photos of you and try 2 touch ure skin because ure white...thats kinda strange but its somit that iv kinda got used 2 i guess..........it sounds so weird sayin that goin down a river in a tube is awesome fun, but it really is lol. People totally don’t understand when u tell them that u don’t drink tho which is kinda strange but im used 2 that too...n obviously coz i don’t drink n i have dreads a lot of ppl here assumed that i wanted other ‘highs’ lol.

I FRIGGIN LOVED TODAY.....so every1 has seen the crazyness that is me, i think they r quite used 2 my chilled out self so seein me like this i guess mighta bin a bit new for them...im so glad i got 2 lob loadsa somersaults tho lol.....n was super impressed that i got some pictures of me doing it too.

The evenin was jus spent by goin out for a meal agen, n it was awesome and chilled out...i really do like sittin at those tables where ure sitting legs crossed  on cushions on no seats...its wicked. I’ve jus realised how much of a hippy i sound right now but hey ho lol.

This place is awesome, good mixture of chill out n craziness if u want it.
