We must be getting old. The drink last night is kicking our butts this morning. Tho, some more than others…Continue reading Kuala Lumpur Meltdown
In an effort to use the day like a tourist and not get heat exhaustion again, we got up at 11 and then spent a few hours by the pool. This hotel has really impressed me considering we are paying so little per night. Its exceptionally clean, the girls on the desk are super welcoming and helpful, a view, a pool, the food and drink is great and while more expensive than a corner shack kitchen, its not tourist gouging.Continue reading Last Night In Thailand
“You asked for Railay, right? Because we are going the wrong way.” Is what I was thinking as the tuktuk drove off down the street.
I bought a boat ticket, why are we even in a tuktuk? Not long later we pull into a marina, of sorts, and boarded the longtail I was expecting. We then motored back past where the tuktuk had picked us up from the ticket office. Not sure what’s wrong with just marking off a section of beach for boats, like every other place. This was a needlessly long detour.Continue reading Tumble Down Tonsai
“Ha! 4 engines?!”
Said the speed boat tied up next berth.
“Check out my 5 engine Poweeeeerrrrrrrrr!!”
They must have been having a game of macho mecha one upmanship…Continue reading Double Spicy
Our last full day on Koh Tao and we head straight for our favourite breakfast spot. A bamboo restaurant nestled between concrete 2 housing blocks with a good view, and breeze, from across the bay. Aimi thinks it’s strange, but I was happy to find peanut butter and banana on toast on the menu. Which means it’s popular enough to not be strange!Continue reading Final Dives
Well… I say we are “get up and go” people, but the last few days have not shaken out that way. Again we rose late and being the laziest of all laziness, we had breakfast at the hotel. It was cheap and good (fresh fruit and yogurt) and allowed me to go straight back to the air conditioned room and do some much needed work.Continue reading The Food Spectrum
Aimi must have recharged her batteries yesterday enough that she wanted to come diving today. It was much better weather and as luck would have it, we got the whole boat to ourselves!Continue reading Turtle Island
Today started with rain. Torrential, hard, thunderous rain. We had risen, and just as we were ready to go, it let up just enough to start walking. Its a 30 min walk from our end of the bay to where Mojo are based, but about half way it started getting heavy again and we ducked into a random restaurant for breakfast.Continue reading Technically NOT Cave Diving
What’s the last thing you want to find in your room after a long day out? Termites… or at least as far as I could tell, with a bit of googling, that’s what they were.Continue reading Critters & Caterpillars
Well we are ploughing thru money wayyyy faster than expected. Thailand is not as cheap as you’d expect… well not in the touristy expensive parts, which I guess is not that surprising after all. So while this is our honeymoon and some minimum level of comfort is required, we might need to curb some expenses and choose things a little more carefully.Continue reading Islandy Hopping
