More beach time on beautfiul white sandy beaches! Am in paradise! Although still raining quite a lot so only get a couple hours each day before we need to take shelter from the torrential downpours! (I am reading a LOT of books!) Still with Lauren & Zena and we are managing very well on the detox (8 days of no drinking - probably best record ever for me!) Went on a boat trip around the island one day which was lovely & fortunately the weather held out for most of it. Did some snorkelling but wasn't really greatly impressed (I am definitely a diving snob now!) so decided to hold off going diving until Ko Phi Phi which is apparently meant to be better now, due to dive sites at Ko Tao being totally ruined by all the hundreds of people that dive there every year. Snorkelling trip was great though and saw some nice corals and lots of pretty fish & stopped at some stunning beaches for even more sunbathing and swimming....definitely making the most of it as have no idea when and where the next beach will be that i go to, won't be able to afford another holiday for years!!
The girls headed off after a few days but I stayed back promising to catch up with them again later - i really like this island and got my own little hut and enjoyed some me-time for a couple of days on my own - but then the weather got really bad - there is only so much reading you can do! so i headed off to meet them again on the dreaded night-ferry to Ko Phi Phi, my last island in Thailand.
