After an 8 hour bus journey from Bangkok we were dumped at the harbour at 2 am. 4 hours sleeping on a bench later and we were woken up by a mad scramble to get on the ferry. Off to Koh Tao!
 After 3 nauseating hours on a vibrating vessel, we made it to the island. The water is crystal clear, the beaches pearly white and the hills green and fertile. Sounds idyllic doesn’t it?
We met up with our English girls (Emma, Phoebe and Rachael) at the Ban Dive Resort. Because there were 5 of us together, we got 6 nights free accommodation! Our “room” turned out to be the converted Spa/Massage room, complete with a pond filled with turtles and giant goldfish and a waterfall! Our mattresses are strewn all over the place, making it our own little cave :) we love it! The island seems to have little to offer besides diving, tanning and partying. We were up for all 3!
