Got a text and two phone messages off Dad today. They are now back on mainland Thailand in a place called Chumphon. Can't believe I managed to miss both phone calls!
They caught the ferry back to mainland. Biked straight off the boat. Found themselves a bungalow by the sea with air con, fridge, TV and en-suite and twin bedded rooms for 600 baht (£12.00) for the night! Can't be bad. It must also have wifi as they called me over the wifi! They were just heading out for an evening meal.
Tomorrow they are heading north along the coast and heading towards Bangkok. Early start around 6.30 hoping to miss some of the heat. They said they would try ringing again but I'm off out so probably won't get to speak to them !
