Emma, charleigh, caitlin and I chatted excitedly as we lay on the beach thinking about the party ahead, The full moon party, people from all over the globe come skipping, smiling and dancing along haad rin beach in their thousands to party in front on the full moon.
The rain reached us at about 1pm so Emma and myself took this as a great opportunity for a massage and a mani-pedi after this we went in to the tiny little town in search of shops and found a few emma needed something to wear... we found her a great pair of full moon party shorts :).
We passed a street vendor on the way back selling pancakes for only 30bht we got one with banana and hot melted choclate in it, delicious, Back at our rooms we were getting ready which consisted of hair straighteners, make up and alot of glitter ! Charleigh and I wore neon tutu's mine was hot pink and charleighs was orange, we also had neon hair ribbons and footless tights to match we probably looked like walking lamposts but we didn't care, we had picked out our outfits a week before we left in covent garden and we loved them :)
Up and in to the back of the open air truck, singing along to emma's phone, the driver was veryyyyyy fast and it was scary for the most part as we kept thinking we were going to go flying over the edge at any moment, luckily we had something to hold on to otherwise I don't think we would have got to haad rin beach with 4 passengers still in the truck.
Everyone told us it never rained at the full moon parties but this was definatly an exception... it was pouring and pouring and it just wouldn't stop... soooo to the main gate to get on to the beach buckets of vodka in hand woop woop.
The full moon party definatly was a new and exciting partying experience for me there were bars, clubs and shops all lining the way to the beach but once inside that was where the real party was at ive never seen so many people in one place before lol.
It was an awesome night .... my bag was stolen tho :( somebody must have cut it off of me because all I found were the strings lose on my shoulder, but luckily I had nothing of much value in their just some make up and some money oh and the keys to my padlock on my rucksack and our room key lol BUT I had taken the drivers advice from the day before and left my camera and phone at the hotel.
