**Graphic content warning**Time to give a proper update; the last week has been a bit mental. I decided that two months on Koh Phangan was enough (for now) and that it was time to continue with my travel adventure & move on to the next destination...Bali! I then proceeded to have a “bit of an accident” involving my leg vs something metal. My leg lost. Scroll through the photos and you’ll see the outcome for yourself. It’s pretty gnarly. Three nights in hospital, a fuck load of antibiotics and pain killers, one surgery and I’m as good as new...albeit with a leg that looks like it belongs in a Mary Shelly novel. Fortunately for me, nothing important was torn in the accident, so I should be able to get diving again in the next couple of weeks when the stitches come out. I had a very last minute family dinner with the amazing people I’ve come to know and love the most on the island, before catching a ferry, a plane and another plane to arrive in Bali safely tonight. Benefits of being an invalid when flying is that you get a row of seats to yourself, wheeled around in a chair, skip all the queues and don’t have to worry about lugging a heavy backpack around. A couple days rest and I’ll be heading in to the dive shop where I’ll be hanging out doing my thing for the next couple of months! Emergency First Response and Rescue Diver courses first. Then I’ll be getting ready to start the Divemaster course! So excited for what’s to come!! Missing my Koh Phangan loves already though ❤️ #kohphangan#thailand#travel#wanderlust#bali#trauma#injury#travelphotography#sunset#sun#piglet#travelblogger#goodvibes

Master Nong is one of the coaches at the Chinnarach Muay Thai Camp in Koh Phangan. Former champion, good teacher of the art and a very nice person. He recently had a stroke which left paralysed his left side. Health care is quite poor for Thai people, and the Muay Thai family is trying to help him by raising funds for medical and rehabilitation costs, hoping we can get him back to normal life. This is an early statement from his camp, my camp in Thailand. '' Dear friends, unfurtanetly a member of the Chinnarach family, y,our beloved Master Nong,had a brain stroke on friday 07/09/2018 that left him paralized on the left side of his body.
He is now in Koh Samui Hospital under medical control.
Anyone had the chance to know him, would remember his smile, his jokes and his kindness.
Master Nong was a great muay thai fighter, known for his knees and killer elbows.
His top fight was paid 100000 Bath and he fought Master Chin 3 times (winning 1!). We are collecting donations to support his medical expensies and rehabilitation.
