we start with a little flight over the thailand gulf to our destination koh samui and what a place it is yes its tropical yes it has luciouse?? crystal clear waters yes it has little thai massage parlours on the beach overlooking those crystal clear waters yes it has bungalows amidst the samui plams yes it has great thai food and yes it has dirty, smelly, animal infested, scooter ridden, annoying seller streets. ok its only a LITTLE down fall i think concidering its so cheap and relaxing. each day we woke to a nice morning swim in the ocean then a little tanning in the arvo then followed by lunch a beer then a nanna nap another swim then out to dinner i know its a hard life someone has to do it.
while in samui we went on a snorkeling trip it was lots of fun we went about an hour of shore to another quieter island where the coral is alot nicer and the fish are plentiful would have been good with a waterproof camera but we got great pictures ne way.after a few more days here we were kinda ready to leave so off to pattaya
and what an experience this place. i dont hink ill ever return picture the typical smelly polition pesterers and about no word of a lie 100s of bars filled with thai girls and foreign men then come here for a couple like us there wasnt that much to do except drink at quiet pubs with no table dancing and eat and eat and eat. the weather was really hot so days were short out in the heat shopping wasnt as good as samui but hey thats ok
while here we went to a tiger zoo very koool we got to feed baby tigers and they had heaps there it was really good they also had like 3000 crocs and we watched a croc show where the guy put his whole ehad into a live croc i was shitting mself on the edge of my seat cause no word of a lie the croc could have closed its mouth at ne minute it was a really good place although i think they shouldnt be in cages but i guess its better then being in the wild getting hunted we also went on an elephant ride through the jungle that was ok once again really hot. we met up with a friend of mine alex from the mines that was good we went out for a drink a few time in the red light district of pattaya weird very weird dirty and sleezy but u have to do it we went into a stirp club and girls were all over brett it was funny we went into another club where all the strippers were russian it cost heaps for drinks and after they did a dance they came to each of us trying to give private dances we practically sculled our drinks and left
got a taxi to the airport scary no one believes in speed limits so the norm 140!!!! mum u would have died i know!!!!!
we got there ok in the end very very looking forward to russia
so thats the next bolg when i get another 10 minutes free
hope everyone is good
