Arrived at Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand

Late last night after two fights and two boat rides I arrived at The Sanctuary Resort Spa Detox Center On Haad Tien Bay – Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand. The final boat ride late last night was a little scarey in a long open boat, darting across the sea with rough water, we I made it to this little piece of paradise. What was strange was we got out into the water in the dark and then the boat driver said "Money Now". What like, if we didn't have it was he going to throw us overboard? My little budget yet clean bungalow is nestled among the trees. Simple bucket toilet and cold shower, mosquito net. Ocean view and most importantly a fan!

I'm uncertain how long I'll stay as I'm feeling mixed emotions right now. I'm partly ready to come home and get on with life (not that I'm any clearer of what that will en tale) and partly sad to have said good bye to some more nice people I met in Laos. I find it hard to keep saying good bye for some strange reason I just keep meeting really nice people this holiday. A bitter \ sweet problem to have. Yet I'm grateful. I'll give it a couple of days and see how I feel then.
