Hiya!
Your trip sounds amazing :)
We'll be in thailand 12th May for about 6 weeks so we should be there same time as you!
Where you heading to in thailand?

Nice trip! Don't get stuck in Cairns too long, it's the kind of place that;ll suck you in if you let it (and no-one knows why because there's nothing to do there ... it's the jump off point for the GBR & Cape Trib).

Good luck saving money, Oz is expensive compared to Asia!

yeah we've got our visa, it was free as well...result!
Just went on Thai consulate and any visa's applied for between may last year and end of march this year are free! we got a tourist visa so get 60 days ;)

thats a result for you then! sorry i get mixed up with all the different places lol! i was planning on goin to the one in june aswell i thinks its on the 16th.6 days before i leave.do you know long the full moon party goes on for?

haha i know they all sound the same dont they!
yeah the 16th sounds about right, that's the one we're going to :) we've booked our accomodation for it coz it gets busy, staying at a place called coco gardens, on the beach..but not on the full moon party beach coz that gets packed.
we're getting to the island on the 14th and staying for 4 nights.
apparently the party before the full moon and after the full moon is better than the actual full moon party itself! so looking a good few nights partying hard :)
