Okay so we wanted to see the island but we had been told to avoid mopeds at all costs.
1. Because thai drivers are nut jobs and dont stick to their side of the road.
2. There aren’t really speed limits.
3. They will give you one even if you have never driven one (like me).
4. Because it’s all a bit corrupt and they like to take advantage of young people.
Basically most of the companies have no insurance and so if you make the tiniest scratch (or even if you dont) they try and charge you up to 15,000 baht.
we got a moped.
It’s 80km in total to drive around the island and so we flipped a coin and decided to anti clockwise.
To fill up your tank here it costs 80 baht, which is about 1.70 GBP.
Why do i live in England?
Hopped on the back of a jeep…
… and to Leannes delight we had to do a bit of walking…
And time to head back to the bungalow…
On the last 10km stretch we managed to get lost. Just as the sun went down.
But we did make it home.
Next morning we went to return the bikes and turns out we had been a little too nice to the Bike shop owner and he now wanted to take us to some ‘hot spots’ around the island. We laughed it off and then he said we could have the bikes longer for free.
That’s me in.
He also filled our Tank up. Such a gentleman.
2 minutes down the road our tyre went flat and Peng had to wheel it all the way to the local garage.
First date wasn’t going so smoothly.
But after half an hour we were back on the road…
First he took us to Swing Bar.
And then to the Grand father and Grand mother rocks (Hin Ta and Hin Yai rocks).
I did try to get rid of him…
But Peng just wasn’t going anywhere.
But in the sea…
Decided against his mad advice to jump in…
Mum i’ve fallen in love and im not coming home…
oooonly joking, my only love is food.
We headed back as our tummys were rumbling…
The dish i have quite literally been living off in Thailand.
CHICKEN WITH CASHEW NUTS.
When Leanne and i sit down to eat I think Leanne is actually getting sick of me having Chicken + cashews nuts every single time.
But it’s just sooooooo good!
