Setting Sun

I'm in Phi Phi and the thought of returning to the UK is dawning. It's still a rucksack walk - ferry ride - taxi haggle - nervous customs check - dubai stopover away but I can't escape the fact that it's time to go home. So some things I'll miss.
  • Shouting Meter! at every city taxi driver before they can even contemplate screwing you over.
  • Beachside massages
  • 9am diving
  • Beef in red chilli paste
  • Pineapple on a stick
  • Watermelon shakes
  • The code of the backpacker (idle but ever so friendly chat, vague directions and chang t-shirts)
  • Photocopied books
  • Swedish women
  • White sandy beaches
