The end of an era

What started off as this…

eventually ended up as this…

With a little help from Oli…

 

The initial plan was to sell it on eBay but they weren’t selling for much if at all so I decided to just take it apart and worry about what to do with it later.  Turns out it’s quite fortunate I didn’t sell it as the whole thing was rotten when I started to take it apart.  Bit of a death trap really…

Samui Culture

We went over to see the Big Bhudda today and then had lunch on Chaweng beach, picked up some bits and pieces followed by beer and a curry. Smashing day


Private pool

We checked out of noisy road dog poo beach bungalow and moved up into the hills of koh Samui. Private pool (sometimes), biggest hotel room I have *ever* stayed in and absolutely stunning views over to Ko Phangan. Bit of a trek to the shops but ho hum. Off to big bhudda and Chaweng today. 

Koh Samui

We made it to Koh Samui. Beautiful sunsets just like we remember but the place has changed massively and not in a good way 🙁

Koh Phi Phi

We headed into the Phi Phi national marine park by speedboat. We popped into a few beaches but Hat Maya ( where the beach was filmed ) was just ridiculously busy. Even the main Phi Phi Don beach was pretty rammed. Quite disappointing and annoying in many ways 🙁

Speed boat to the islands

We took a speedboat out to a series of islands in Krabi province. Did some snorkeling but the conditions went ideal. I’ll link to a video when I get it all sorted out. 

Finally escaped the traffic of Bangkok

Wedding over we took the first opportunity we could to escape the chaos of Bangkok City and fly out to Ao Nang beach in Krabi province. Massage, snorkeling, streetfood and beer. Not necessarily in that order.
