After my refreshing shower and brushing teeth combo I proceeded to wash 2 pairs of my boxers in the sink using my Nivea 3 in 1 shower gel- it works a treat and saves on the 30-40 baht per kilogram price tag. I would say that by this point I would have washed around 20-25 kilograms which if you do the maths equates to between 600 baht and 1000 baht (£13.00 – £21.00), this is enough another 7-10 nights in Bangkok! So scrimping and saving where you can is the way forward for extending your trip if you’re on a budget…if you’re not on a budget I hate you haha.
Next was breakfast where I treated myself to cornflakes and a cup of English tea – it was heavenly and my first non-Thai meal since I have been here. We finished up, got our lotion on and went for a trek along the coast/jungle areas into Koh Tao town centre via an extremely twisty path through all the other numerous beach hut resorts. It was like being in the Flintstones for a little while but some of the more expensive pads were ridiculously nice…oh how the other half lives (although I should point out that a lot of the couples looked miserable as sin and were sitting in the shade!! Mega waste!!).
So now as I write this blog entry I’m sitting in an open air bar called the Safety Stop Pub with Scotty Dogg eating a fried chilli, ginger and basil with ground pork Thai dish. The taste is sensational and the cost is 80 baht and includes rice, free Wi-Fi and some water…Bring on the day. Oh and its 33 degrees outside with minimal cloud cover. Bye for now.
