Firstly i would like to apologise for being so horrendous at updating my blog !! I am going to try and keep it updated from now on. (altho i might need awhile to catch up)

After spending an uneventful night in macau i arrived in Thailand where I met up with Seb at the airport. First stop was Ko Phi Phi, after a very long journey down there we arrived in Krabi town, where we had to hang around for afew hours to be taken to the port. Finally we hopped in the back of the truck only to be drenched by the biggest downpours ever the whole way there. (we were convinced that the driver was taking us thru the rain clouds on purpose).
We checked in the at the ferry terminal and i changed into some dry clothes. Oh was that a mistake, for about 10 mins it was nice and sunny on the boat then the heavens opened for the next 2 and half hours !!! by the time we arrived in Ko pHi pHi i looked like a drowned rat.

Ko pHi phi was pretty, not what i expected but still nice, they are still rebuilding from the tusnami but the island is livley and there were plently of places to stay. The first night i got to see some Thai boxing, i loved it!! some poor english bloke got his nose broken by a lady boy !!! dohhhh....

The rest of the time on Phi Phi was spent sunbathing, drinking, eating and exploring. One day was spent on a boat trip which took us to Phi Phi Lei the island where The Beach was filmed!! As we were on a big boat we had to anchor on the other side of the island. After hacking our way through some vegetation to ge to the beach we emerged only to be greeted by the sight of lots of fat europeans !!!

Bangkok was our next destination (again) to pick up John....
