After 24 hours of sitting, more sitting but in cramped planes and then sitting some more we have made it to Perth, Western Australia.

Nothing to report as of yet, staying with our friend, very comfortable, very hospitable.

I'll get my camera repaired.

All the Koh's

Beach at Bangrak, K.Samui
Viewpoint in Anthong MP
Not updated in a while but we have been in Koh Samui, Koh Phanang and now currently in Koh Phi might have gathered that Koh is Thai for Island.

Koh Samui is quite a large island, the second largest in fact after Phuket and we stayed in the area of Bangrak which was fairly quite but right next to the pier for the main boat to Phanang and we were right on the beach.

We sort of dotted back and forth between the 2 islands and attended the world famous Full Moon Party which is essentially a lot of people, a lot of neon on a beach having a party. Such good fun.

By this point we were with friends from home, Alison, Pete, Lori, Hannah and Rosie and they all decided to stay in our little row of beach front bungalows.

We decided to change our flights back a day in order for us all to goto the Anthong National Marine Park which is lots of tiny wee paradise islands. We done kayaking and I went up to the view point by myself, everyone else is too lazy. It was a ludicrous climb and pretty unsafe but it was worth it in the end.

So we are currently in Phi Phi which was actually very badly damaged in the New Year Tsunami years ago there are evacuation signs every where. Unfortunately my camera has taken a turn for the worse and the lense wont function so its out of action until I can get it repaired in Perth. Its a real shame because this is another beautiful island with plenty of night life, it has however been very wet, sometimes raining heavily all day. There are no cars or mopeds here just silent killer bicycles which adds its own charm.

Our flight to Perth is a 2 leg flight from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur and then on to Perth. Thats on 13th and we arrive on the 14th.
