Koh Samui

5th July

Here comes the monsoon season, hence a perfect time to catch up with life! 
We arrived at Koh Samui & were taken to a hotel named 'The Loft'... well.. at first they put us into a room with just a double matress?! Ha, thanks but no thanks. So I ended up going back to complain and they moved us into a room with actually beds which was nice. Straight away we headed to Chewang beach. The beach is beautiful however it is very much the tourist side of the island full of resorts. 
For dinner we ate at a bar and grill and I also got my shellacs re-done (happy girl). We then chilled at a bar with a live band which was relaxing.

Today we set out to find the view point. After a standard egg and baguette at Cafe Uno we walked along the beach and over some rocks but ended up on a nicer beach so just sunbathed there. For lunch we headed back to the Chewang and had a beef satay with peanut butter sauce (god I miss Thai food). One of the best places we have ate so far on this trip was tonight at Ninja Crepes. It looks like a dump but it was so authentic that it didn't matter. I had big noodles and Ally had egg noodles... then of course we ordered some mango with sticky rice! Mmmmm. 
Been struggling to walk lately as I cut my foot on a rock in the beach so it was a bit of a slow walk to the bar tonight.. Ark Bar. Watched a storm in the distance with some fire dancers and pina coladaaaaa!!
