I got the morning ferry back to Koh Phangan and was so stoked to be get to stay with my new England friend Kirsty and FINALLY see the full moon party. I was intending to head straight for the hospital to see about my infection on my ankle, but made a split second decision to stop at the pharmacy and see if they had the antibiotic my mom had suggested for skin infections. They had it and I bought a couple of packs and took the first dose and called my mom, waking her up as it was close to midnight in Oregon for her advise. I didn’t want to go to a doctor if at all possible so after speaking to her I decided to take it for a day or two and see if it got better. I headed off to Coco Bungalows where I was meeting Kirsty and sneaking into her room to avoid having to pay extra. (more…)

When the plane landed in Bangkok at 2am and I was waiting in the immigration line, I noticed a big muscular “All American” looking guy in line behind me mainly because he was good looking. When I saw him again at the baggage claim and realized I was going to have to take a cab by myself into Bangkok at 230 in the morning to a hostel having no idea what kind of area it was in, I decided if it was better if I was with a strong muscular man than on my own. I waited to see if he had a backpack or luggage because if it was a backpack then I was going to ask him to share a cab. Luckily for me, not only did he have a backpack, but also a yoga mat tucked into the back so he MUST be cool. Turns out he had no plan and was just going to sleep in the airport and then plan to head south so he was open to joining me at a hostel for a night and figuring things out from there. I didn’t know it at the time, but approaching Scott at the airport was the beginning of two and a half wild weeks we would be spending traveling around Bangkok and the beaches and islands of southern Thailand.
