Koh tao is lovely. I’m feeling the picturesque part of Thailand now. It’s hot hot hot but also way more expensive than Bangkok, which sucks!!
I started off the journey with one of the guys from the hostel in Bangkok, Julian from Germany. He is truly a character. We also met up with a french girl and a girl from Argentinia, and luckily enough we all got to share the same 4 bed dorm room. It’s sweet staying with people you ‘know’ vs. total strangers.
A french-woman, Argenitini(wom)an, and Ger-man on the struggle to the hostel.
Fire shows on the beach.
I’m in the process of geting my SSI Open water diving. Long days and a ton of theory and 90-s-esque videos, but also great fun at night when we sit and study together by the beach.
study session beer and food. Thai green curry. Spicy. MM. mm m..m
After my first pool-diving sesh.
Tomorrow afternoon I’m off to Koh Phangan for the full moon party. It’s meant to be ridiculous. I haven’t been able to get a place to stay for the night though, so we will be taking the 15:00 boat there, and leaving at 08:00 am the next day. Will just have to stay awake or nap on the beach (or designated ‘nap’spots (???? it’s a crazy party).
Chilling by the sunset, waiting for dinner-friends to get ready so we can go eat.
The islands seem so so chill, though. I love it. Minimal make up, 24/7 bikini, and there is basically freedom all around you. It is all a bit touristy, though. But what can you expect.
- If you think you’re going to be able to find Venus-gilette razor heads, you’re going to have a bad time. (asian women are furrless, remember)
- I have bought so so many bottles of water, it’s crazy. It’s a neccessity rather than a luxury getting a bottle of soda water in Sweden.
- You can buy burgers, sausages, ‘english breakfast’ etc everywhere. I don’t like it.
