I left the hostel early as I have no idea what is actually available on this island and wanted some back-up supplies. Discovered some new bites, bed bugs this time! So definitely would not recommend this hostel to stay in! Unless, of course, you like that kind of thing.
I wanted to get a tuk tuk but a guy on a motorcycle showed up and seeing as I only have a small backpack I jumped on the back!
I went to chill out in the cafe bar on the beach and wait for the boat, they have the ladies selling massage and bracelets and fruit all approaching people on the beach.
For some reason they all swarm around you when you’re having one thing, they think you will want everything else.
….So my nails were done too!
They were pretty disgusting, so I kinda let that happen!
Turns out my booking hadn’t gone through properly and as a result I got upgraded to a hut with its own bathroom! Sweet!
My hut is hidden away in the jungle.
I quickly changed into what I’ll probably be wearing for the next 4 days…my bikini.
Lounged by the sea staring off into space, attempting to read.
Went for a swim, while I was drying off back in my lounge chair one of the staff asked if I wanted to take part in a ‘game’. You pay for one beer and you can drink as many as you want for free for the following 30mins! Sounds like a challenge, so for the cost of one beer, I’m in!
I hadn’t eaten anything so thought it best to order a pizza to soak up the alcohol while I was drinking.
The prices are obviously a little more expensive here as we’re on a tiny island, but the food is good, so at least it worth it and the portions are large.
I managed to drink one and a half beers in 30mins, so, I have three more days to build that up!
It’s weird how I came here to do nothing but now I’m here and have nothing to do I feel like I should be doing something!
I went back to the beach to enjoy the sun going down.
I came back to my hut to get my book, walked through the jungle in the darkness by myself. Although I’ve walked through plenty of dark wilderness before, I’ve never been alone, and it did freak me out a bit.
So I stayed in my hut and reading by candle light for a bit. Sea air, relaxing by the ocean all day, beer, all made me really sleepy.
Woke a few times in the night randomly, the sound of all the bugs in the night is loud but comforting.
