    Tour de Khao Lak

    April 27 in Thailand ⋅ 🌧 29 °C

    The last few days have been spent doing sweet bugger all, reading and swimming, and a moderately disastrous paddle around in sea kayaks which resulted in what Rich insists on calling SunglassesGate. Last night we had dinner at the resort, the highlight of which was spying a little kitty prawling high in the ceiling beams, doing laps of the round room.

    Today we took some bicycles out for what was going to be a relaxed meander and ended up being about 10km round trip - I've never sweated more but it was great fun, topped off by a wet crossing with the bikes over our shoulders through a short channel of water to do the short cut home. Very extreme and off road of us.

    We've just had a massage - my lady seemed quite keen to get my tricep off the bone - and are about to get picked up by tuk tuk from a restaurant about 15 minutes away. It's called Pam's and it's run by a northern Thai woman and a European man. Hopefully good!

    The smell I'll associate with Thailand is lemon grass - it's the cold drink you get as welcome, impregnated in the icy towels you get at dinner, and generally pretty bloody overpowering, but it could be worse.

    Papaya salad

    April 24 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 34 °C

    We walked up the beach for lunch, as it seems a few Australians have done before us, from the amount of times the guy at the restaurant asked if we were enjoying our 'bonza tucker' and 'bloody cold beer' - Queenslanders truly have a lot to answer for. Finally got to order the papaya salad but it's not really for me. The three tiny puppies running around got 5 stars though.Read more

    My schedule says relax

    April 24 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    So we will. We got chatting to a guy from Melbourne (the first and last bit of chatting I hope) last night who has been here before and offered the incredibly useful tip that the body of water between this skinny peninsula and the town is traversable in low tide, so rather than taking a 30 minute taxi to go all the way back up and down, you can just hop across in a 10 minute walk. Nice. Anyway we'll have a go later, for now it's a WWII biography, F1 podcast (we are sticking very closely to form) and I plan to drag us 600m up the beach for lunch.Read more

    Strand - Bang Niang Beach

    January 13, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Den Vormittag haben wir mit Planung verplant 😉 und nebenbei den Pool benutzt. Für den Nachmittag haben wir in Laufnähe einen Strand entdeckt, wo wir das Meer genießen. Zur Belohnung (wofür auch immer 😃) gibts zwischendurch mal wieder eine Massage. Dirk probiert eine typische Thaimassage aus.
    Abendbrot gibts heute beim Bayern, und zwar Käsekuchen wie bei Muttern! In dieser Ecke des Landes merken wir, Thailand ist ein Lieblingsurlaubsland der Deutschen. Macht nichts, der Käsekuchen ist lecker!
