Landed at Gan Airport, then had to take a water taxi to our little Island 'Amari Addu', it only took 20 minutes! A bit scary as it was pitch black and the boat didn't seem to have any lights!!
We arrived on a tiny jetty and walked into paradise.......
Only 1 hotel on the island and nothing else, not even a shop. There are only 42 people staying at the hotel and we make up a third of that!, it is deserted, we seem to have the whole place to ourselves.
Everyone is just chilling... and drinking! Oh and sunbathing........
Went shell picking this morning for the girls, some amazing & unusual coloured shells.
Despite it being so beautiful it's just not the same when you cant share it with your loved ones! I have really been missing home today, I need some words of encouragement from you all to help me get through the next half of the trip. I think because we have done nothing for 2 days it makes you stop and think...
I have attached some pictures but once you have seen one white beach you've seen them all!!
I thought I would also introduce you to some of the crew members who are experiencing this trip with me. I have been very lucky as they are all really nice people. Standing at the back from left to right we have Matt, Kieren, Bobby, Gareth and Neil. Sitting from left to right we have Lesley, Jill, Me, Karen, Jo & Kath
Lastley, I think I told you that the aircr4aft had been reconfigured into a luxury jet, I dont get the first class seats, the engineers and me get the cheap seats, check out my legroom on the last sector!!
Looking forward to Thailand, will be great to go back to Chaing Rai - I loved it first time around and I am sure I won't be disappointed this time.
Bye Bye up at 0400 tomorrow morning!!
