    Auf dem Weg nach Koh Samui

    October 20, 2018 ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Den heutigen Tag verbrachten wir auf den Straßen von Thailand 🚌 und auf einer Fähre auf dem Weg nach Koh Samui 🚢
    Wir kamen erst abends in unserem Hotel an und konnten so das Meer nur bei Nacht begutachten.🌝
    Dafür fanden wir einen richtig geniales Burgerrestaurant mit deutschem Besitzer und australischem Fleisch🍔 unser Abend war gerettet 😄Read more

    Koh Kong

    November 24, 2014 ⋅

    We had our last beach day on an ocean yesterday as we will now make toward inner Cambodia and Lao afterwards which is a landlocked country as you all know. Quiz of the day (sans Google, but you can use your puzzle, Nat!): Name the only 2 double landlocked countries in the world. (landlocked=no connection to the sea / double landlocked=no connection to the sea nor to country having themselves connection to the sea)

    The beach on Koh Kong island we spent the day on was fantastic. Just a German family, a French couple, us, and 2 guides on it. Super calm! Karsten got his first (light) sunburn. Maybe that will help in getting him tanned a little ;).

    On the way back we had a little walk in a mangrove forest which was quite nice although we had our first rain since Saigon.

    Today we had another relaxing day in Koh Kong city, so this time Karsten got his hair cut. Turned out...well...pic below.

  • Day61

    We headed to Crusoe Island resort for 4 nights over Christmas. Basically it's like glamping on the beach/jungle.

    We opted for the Explorer bungalow.
    I use the word bungalow loosely, for where walls should be, were bright flowing orange curtains, so not much privacy or protection from the jungle beasts but a cracking view every morning and evening.

    Christmas was idyllic, pure bliss. Happy, chilled, tipsy floating in the gulf of Thailand.
    The freshly cooked island food was exquisite and we only had pangs for Xmas turkey once or twice.

    Evening were spent chatting around the shipwrecked style bar, talking to new friends, playing cards and swapping travel tales.

    Talking of new friends, we had a few run ins with huntsman spiders! Tarantulas! (While washing with our bucket shower, I washed a tarantula onto me.... !!!) And a nightly visit from mr rat, who had a taken quite a liking to our dove soap bar!!!!!

    We loved our loved up paradise Christmas. Definitely one we will never forget.

    At Sea

    December 25, 2018 ⋅ ☁️ 28 °C

    Merry Christmas to us! We weren't really sure what was in store for us as this was our first Christmas on a cruise ship, although Ted and I decided to get into the spirit early by wearing Santa hats to breakfast. It seemed like a great idea since so many people were wearing their Christmas attire last night.

    As it turned out, we were the only ones who were! But we didn't care as it was still the day for a Festive spirit. One of the first things I did this morning was call the restaurant reservations extension to try and guarantee a table sitting for our LGBT group. Getting this arranged for 24 people wasn't difficult so now I could finally breathe easy.

    Today was a nice cruisy (no pun intended) day so I went and relaxed in the coffee shop with a ginger tea waiting for the arrival of Santa. Since Ted and I had already purchased the Santa hats, I thought we should similarly get a photo taken with Saint Nick, as well as a Christmas present photo with two of the Princess Cruise hostesses.

    We relaxed in the covered pool area before having a nap and heading to Christmas music trivia with Chris and his mum Karen. We had less luck this time as the MC kept giving clues to the audience. One cool thing though was when the Captain announced we would be passing another Princess cruise ship which was being sailed by his brother, meaning they would send a toot to each other. We then went back to get ready for our Christmas dinner at the Pacific Moon restaurant.

    Even though they had asked us to arrive at 5.00pm to guarantee tables together, they didn't open their doors until 5.30pm. Thankfully it all worked out fine, although I sat at the table with all girls as there wasn't enough places on the table where Ted was. Just like before, the whole group of us then went for drinks at our favourite haunt, the Wheelhouse Bar. Tomorrow we arrive at Bangkok but since the drive there is so far, we're going to explore nearby Pattaya instead.

    At Sea

    December 28, 2018 ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

    Today was our last day of the cruise before returning to Singapore, so it wasn't too big a day! After a reasonable sleep, our whole day basically involved relaxation, trivia, packing our bags and eating! During both games of trivia, we missed winning by one, but since we can't exactly pack more things it's probably good that we didn't.

    For the first time since Singapore, I was feeling ill today, so I'm grateful we didn't have any big excursions anywhere. At 7pm, we met our LGBT group for final drinks before we all go our separate ways. It was also a good opportunity to have the last beers from my drink package rather than have them go to waste!

    We managed to get one last group photo before some of us went to the Skywalker Bar for a few more beverages. Tomorrow we're back in Singapore, and flying home too!

    February 6, 2017 ⋅

    Sonne, Strand und Palmen....
    Über das Hostel konnte man eine Bootstour bzw. ein kleines Boot mit Kapitän für wenig Geld für den ganzen Tag buchen. Wir haben uns als kleine Gruppe im Hostel zusammen getan und sind heute morgen früh los zum Pier.
    Insgesamt haben wir vier Inseln mit traumhaften Stränden angefahren. Meist waren wir allein dort oder mit wenigen Anderen.
    Ein bisschen schade ist es nur, wie aber hier eigentlich überall, dass es sehr sehr dreckig ist rundherum.

    Koh Kood - Begrüßung im Regen

    January 18, 2016 ⋅

    Koh Kood - eine kleine Insel im Osten des Golfs von Thailand... Sie soll eins der letzten Paradiese in diesem Land sein. Was bedeutet, dass der Massentourismus noch nicht angekommen und die Natur noch relativ intakt ist.

    Wir gönnen uns ein Privattaxi von Pattaya zum Hafen nach Trat, mit einem Fahrer empfohlen von Andrej. Wenn man will und dementsprechend bezahlt, kann man es sich ganz gemütlich gutgehen lassen in Thailand. Wir werden abgesetzt an der Koh Kood Princess - unserem Boot für heute.
    Unten ist es klimaanlagen-kalt und es läuft irgendein verrücktes thailändisches Comedy-programm auf einer Leinwand, für das man wohl Thai sein muss, damit man darüber lachen kann.
    Oben gibt es zwar keine Stühle, aber dafür frische Luft und Aussicht... Es ist bewölkt und je mehr wir uns Koh Kood nähern, desto dunkler wird es. Pünktlich zum Ausstieg fängt es an zu schütten...
    Es stehen Songthaews bereit, um uns zu den jeweiligen Ressorts zu bringen. Das sind umgebaute Pick up Trucks, die auf der Ladefläche Passagiere befördern.
    Im Regen bekommen wir einen ersten Eindruck von "unserer " Insel.

    Saying Goodbye

    March 24, 2018 ⋅ ⛅ 79 °F

    Tonight is the last night we will see over 120 of our crew members who have been with us since we began this journey. While many have greeted us at the restaurant or bars or in the common areas, others have labored unseen doing our laundry or handling the maintenance on the ship. Some have worked during the night cleaning or baking or providing security while we were rocked to sleep by the Viking Sun. All of them have touched our lives in so many ways. Their smiles and waves have greeted us, and their care for each of us has been exceptional. Today I met a young man in the hallway outside our room. I introduced myself and asked him when he had gotten on the ship. He told me he has been here since September. So I met and said goodbye to a crewman at the same time. To all the crew members that we have known for months, and to all that we have just met, and to all of those we have never met, we say “thank you.” You have touched our lives and we are grateful. May you have a wonderful and much deserved vacation. Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand .Read more

    Insel hopping (Paradise)

    February 6, 2017 ⋅

    Robinson Crusoe wäre neidisch gewesen auf diesen Ort so ziemlich am Ende der Welt.

    Einsame und unbewohnte Inseln südlich von Puh Quoc mit Glas klarem Wasser welches türkis in der Sonne schimmert.

    Fern von jeglichem störenden Motoren geräusch, genießt man hier das Rauschen des Meeres, die Sonne auf der Haut und laute der Natur.

    Mit dem privat Boot das einer vierköpfigen Truppe zur Verfügung stand. Ließen wir uns auf vier der kleinen Inseln schippern, Schnorchelten und entspannten.
