Nosey Parkers.........


Well well well!!!! What an exciting few days!!
The boat here from Koh Phi Phi was terrifying........ the sea was so so so rough.... water was coming through the ceiling and through the doors!! Our bags got soaked!! I even got my phone out at one point to text everyone to say goodbye ;-) ........ Maybe thats a slight exageration, but it was very bad!! The waves were huge and the boat was not at all stable!! (Dad...... i'm sure you'd of had a few words of wisdom for the captain!!) Well i was more than relieved to be back on dry land!! Krabie we decided was a bit Krappie!! So we are staying at a nearby town called Ao Nang which is by the beach and quite sweet its a bit like a margate..... seaside town but its cool!!! Were we're staying it awesome.... really friendly! On of the islands around this area was used in the James Bond film 'The Man With The Golden Gun' (The scaramongers island with od job!!!) We can see it from the see if from here but we haven't visited it! Ben wanted to go and see if one of the bond girls had been left behind! ;-) yesterday we went to an Elephant camp called Nosey parkers!! It was awesome!! We went and rode an elephant through the Jungle and we got to sit on the head (not as nasty as that sounds) The ground was really muddy and slippery but our elephant handled it well! :-) It was quite a long trek.... it went though a river.... the elephants just went whatever way they wanted.... it was real funny! after the trek we went and fed the elephants and watched them have a bath in the river!! That was really interesting... they went right under the water!! I never new elephants could swim!! ;-) We also went for a walk through the jungle and saw rubber trees!!! "Rubber doesn't grow on trees'....... well actually.......... it does!!! You can pick bits off and its just like a rubber band! Crazy!! It was a really nice day we met loads of cool people!!
