The next day (valentines day - tiggers birthday) we headed off for a day of canoeing and to see the dolphins native to the 4000 islands. The canoeing itself was ok, but really tiring. We also saw some pretty impressive waterfalls and even got a glimpse at the dolphins in the distance. It was a fun day but really tiring. That night we went out for a meal at a really nice restaurant run by an Aussie expat and the food was great. Played a bit of Uno with all the Germans then headed to the beach. I was in a weird mood because they where all heading off to Cambodia the next day and I was trying to decide whether or not to go with them. I'd wanted to meet up with Laura from Chang Mai who was also staying there but we hadn't managed to cross paths but just as I gave up trying to track her down I bumped into her on the beach and we had a catch up. I was running really low on money and trying to work out how I could live on the money i had left or if I should just head to Cambodia with the Germans. I felt like i'd only just got to Laos and hadn't really seen much of it but at the same time i wanted to hang out with Maren some more. So eventually I decided to crash the Germans party and come along with them to Cambodia.
And I'm really glad I did :-)
