    Ao Sai Beach

    February 10 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    Vormittags relaxen...heute mit Besuch auf unserer Terrasse...wenn wir sie richtig gedeutet haben, war es eine ungefährliche grüne Schmuckbaumnatter🐍...Nachmittags wenn die 🌞 nicht mehr so brennt, schwingen wir uns auf Susi und lassen uns den Fahrtwind um die Nase wehen... das ist unser Rhythmus

    Koh Yao Yai Village - "Honeymoon" :)

    February 4 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Eingebettet im Regenwald direkt am Meer gelegen, empfängt uns ein kleines "Paradies"...die weitläufige Anlage mit ihrer bunten Blütenpracht, den lauschig unter Palmen gelegenen Bungalows und kleinen Villen bilden den Rahmen und Schlußakkord unserer kaum mehr zu beschreibenden Reise...In der mit kleinen Annehmlichkeiten großzügig auf Pfählen ruhenden Villa wollen wir entspannen, zufrieden und erfüllt zurück blicken auf das Erlebte...hier lassen wir die letzten Tage ausklingen...insgeheim würden wir noch so gerne weiter....Spät am Abend grinst uns Isabella fröhlich mit Zahnlücke an😅 den zweiten Wackel Milchzahn hat sie sich eben mal selbst gezogen 😛Read more

    Jetzt ist er doch gekommen...

    February 14 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Unser letzter Reisetag😭...wir haben noch ein paar Stunden auf der Insel, in der Früh unsere sieben Sachen gepackt und bis das Boot uns abholt, liegen wir am Pool... ungläubig das es heute "enden" soll...unsere Uhren gehen inzwischen nicht nur am Handgelenk anders...wir sind gespannt, wie sich das "verändert" sein daheim anfühlen wird. Es ist schön zu wissen, wie freudig wir erwartet werden 😍. Euch allen viel Liebe am heutigen Valentinstag ♥, ein guter Tag um die Heimreise anzutreten.Read more

    Ao Muong Beach

    February 8 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Auf der überwiegend muslimisch geprägten Insel begegnen uns auf unseren Ausflügen die Menschen überall sehr freundlich. Wir kehren in kleine Lokale ein, finden die versteckten Buchten und treffen gelegentlich sogar auf die einheimische Tierwelt 🐒🐊

  • Day76

    Rumfahren...

    February 10 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Würden nicht allerorts auch hier schon Handys in den Händen liegen...scheint die Insel ein Ort, wie aus der Zeit gefallen...sehr bescheiden mutet das Leben nach "unseren" Maßstäben hier an...macht uns nachdenklich und relativiert, mit wie viel mehr... andere an anderem Ort nie zufrieden werden....

    Hua Lam Haad Beach - Bacardi feeeeeling

    February 6 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Lange hält es uns nicht am Pool...wir wollen uns wieder "bewegen". Ein Stück die Strasse rauf mieten wir einen Roller, dass Hauptfortbewegungsmittel auf der Insel und so preiswert, dass wir "Susi" gleich die ganze Woche behalten. Vom Schulkind bis zur Oma, Mütter mit Baby unterm Arm, zu zweit, zu dritt, zu viert ...alles fährt hier Moped...und "natürlich" ohne Helm. Wir genießen die Freiheit, Isabella die Geschwindigkeit 🏍 und so brausen wir kreuz und quer über die Insel, auf kaum zu befahrenen "Strassen" zu abgelegenen Traumstränden...Read more

    Krabi - Day 2

    July 23 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Today did a hike in jungle to some rivers with aqua marine colours, swam in one for a while and then found a beautiful isolated beach outside the main town with almost no one there. Relaxed there for a few hours enjoying a few beers, and hopping in and out of the water to cool off. But not really because the water is warmer than my hotel shower. Incredibly tranquile

    Headed back to town and got a seaside table for some more amazing thai food and people watching while writing my blog entry :) My welsh friend Marianne eventually came and joined me and we set off to find a more happening spot. The nightlife never took off that night but we had fun playing jenga and connect 4 lol over several beers to wind down a very chill day. The northern ireland couple really overdid it the night prior and weren't able to come meet us but probably for the best as they were off to phi phi island the next morning and Marianne was off to some other island, which i completely forget now.

    Some fun facts about thailand. They drive on the left side of the road; they dont use chopsticks; and there's a pretty sizeable muslim population here that i wasn't expecting. There's also a bit of a dictatorship military government going on and all the elections are rigged in their favour. Protesting doesn't seem to be permitted so its a very hard road in Thailand to push forward change. Feel bad for them especially because they're all so friendly and nice.

    Krabi - Day 3

    July 24 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Third day in one place. Nice to put down some roots for a change and relax a bit. Days are getting numbered so its appealing to stay in such a beautiful spot for a few days. Especially with my amazing hotel.

    Off to Railay beach today which is not accessible any other way but by boat because tall cliff rock walls create a huge natural barrier. Met a nice korean-american named david going to the same place. Our boat pulled into a beach and we got off but then quickly realized we were the only ones who got off and the boat was already gone. Wrong beach. Ton Sai beach. Pulled out my map and could see if we traipsed through some jungle we could hike to Railay beach, which we did.

    Railay was striking with more karst rock formations and loads of restaurants on the beach. Had lunch there and then i found another jungle trail to try to reach another beach. This trail was a lot less defined and rough terrain and david only had flipflops and had to abort. I kept going only to find out the other beach was accessible on this trail by going through a cave to the other side but you needed ropes to get up to it. So i had to head back too but got some nice shots from high up.

    David decided to call it a day and head back on next boat but i was more determined and found another path that lead me to Phra Nang Beach through some low level caves and was rewarded with more stunning views and monkeys everywhere! The whole reason david and i hiked that rough terrain was to find monkeys. Poor guy lol.

    From there caught a boat back to Ao Nang where i was staying, to avoid the big storm clouds rolling in. Walking down the road, i was cat called by a bunch of thai ladies having drinks on a patio, so i wandered over and joined them for a beer. Destroyed one of them in 4 games of pool haha and then headed off my hotel pool swim up bar to relax for a while.

    Went back out and had an amazing red snapper main, with green mango salad, and prawns for 10 dollars for supper, a few beers and off to bed to get up early for ferry trip to phi phi island in morning. Pretty sure i will return to Krabi some day. It was a gamble coming here because people i met in cambodia said it rained all day here for a few weeks straight. Its rainy season in all four countries but I haven't had a single day rained out so far. I have a sun-finding gift. And a monkey finding gift too apparently haha.

    Day 2 - Elephant Hills

    December 8, 2018 in Thailand ⋅ 🌧 29 °C

    We woke up at 7am to the ‘gong gong gong’ (which announced meal times) and made our way slowly to breakfast. I thought we’d be the last there as had taken so long but turns out we were practically the first. The selection of food was vast with fresh eggs served however you wanted including as a little omelette, cheese, roti, cereals and of course rice and stir fried noodles if you fancied.

    After breakfast we met our new guide for the day Mr Tony and our fellow happy campers DD and Julie. We were soon off in the mini bus to our first stop which was a small market. We had a walk through the food until we hit the stinky meat and fish and did a swift 180. There wasn’t much else to see so we headed back to the van. At our second stop we boarded a speed boat and made our way down river, we then made our way slowly though the mangroves to try and see some wildlife but only managed to see a few butterflies. Making our way back up the river and past where we started we headed out towards the sea to join a bigger boat where we would stop for lunch. As we needed to wait for lunch to be cooked we decided to go kayaking in the mangroves to try and see some more wildlife. This time we managed two crabs and an egret.

    Having returned to the big boat we then waited for lunch to be finished off with some singing, jokes and a failed attempt by Mr Tony to get me and Blake to act out the scene from the Titanic where Jack and Rose stand at the end of the boat whilst he sang ‘my heart will go on’ and tried to film it. By this point I was hungry and didn’t want to be the latest viral tourist in Thailand so politely refused. Lunch was served and it was delicious as always (although maybe a bit spicy for Blake). We then had some free time before heading back to Elephant Hills.

    The evenings entertainment was another documentary, this time on the jungle followed by more children performing Thai dances and a chicken and pineapple curry cooking demonstration. We then tucked into another buffet feast!

    A soggy walk

    April 30 in Thailand ⋅ ☁️ 26 °C

    We saved visiting the fancy beach club, KOKULO, until the last full day, which, hilariously, coincided with an absolutely torrential downpour which caused a bit of flash flooding and made our decision to walk the few km there pretty damp!

    It was a shame to miss the beach club in full force but sloshing through the flooded streets getting battered by rain was a funny experience and I don't regret it.

    There were three Korean couples there accompanied by a videographer documenting their trip with some extremeeee candids, which was quite entertaining.

    After we got back to the hotel we found that ceiling kitty has a whole family, including two babbies, living in a duct, like something out of red dwarf. The fam was snoozing on the staircase but ran off when humans arrived, but the little grey dear got left behind and was very spooked. I wanted to carry him up to mum but figured that was probably a good way to get some money out of travel insurance so left him alone.
