After a day on the beach (and quite a few before that), I decided that we had to do something. And a boat trip sounded like fun. So we booked a rather cheap one on a traditional longtail boat. Continue reading
I could write to you about our four islands longtail boat trip today but I rather want to share seven observations we made during our travels (in no particular order):
It’s been three days now since we left for Koh Lanta but I didn’t have time to post something till now as we had no internet.
The night before we left was a bad one. I slept badly due to heavy rain. I always thought: if it rains like this tomorrow morning we’ll be soaking wet until we’ve even reach the street from our hut. And when I slept I dreamt about missing the ferry. Morning saw my fears confirmed. Continue reading
Since yesterday afternoon it has been raining every now and then. This is actually quite annoying. Not that it would mean that it gets cold or because we can’t lie on the beach (a little less sun could do my skin some good for a few days).
What bugged me, is that on one hand we have quite a lot of slightly wet clothes that should be dry by tomorrow (because wet clothes don’t get better when you carry them around in your backpack, so to speak) and on the other hand we needed to walk down the 30 minutes to Thong Sala again to get our tickets to Krabi and of course we didn’t want to do so in the rain.

We’ve been on Koh Phangan for two days and are now online once more. After we spent the first two nights in a really cheap place up north in Chaloklum, following the Lonely Planet advise, we decided to move. It was actually not that nice there. Sure, there was a strip of powdery white sand, lots of quiet surrounding but it was not as beautiful as it could have been. So we rented a scooter and explored the island. Continue reading
There are numerous places with WiFi, free or with password, literally everywhere, where there is a cafe or a resort. But for really doing some work here, I’d like to have a laptop. But as it is, I’m just fine with typping everything into my phone and uploading it from there. It’s just so handy (the Germans will get that pun…).
