Sep 28, 2011 - backgorund and update

Some time ago I started thinking about changing my life. what would this entail? I wanted to get away from the snow. my dream wall say lived by or on the ocean. Be happy was also there. and Love my work and be paid well for it. there were others but these were the ones that swam around in my brain. over and over and over. then I decided to try getting a job teaching English in south Korea. I got the paper work together and found a recruiter. I spoke to her once and then waited and waited and waited. then I thought maybe this was not going...

Feb 12, 2011 - Ko Samui

What a reward to arrive to paradise islands! After an overnight bus, taxis, boats and more buses we made it Ko Samui in about 19 hours...and the swim in the warm water and deliciious daquiris were very welcome! Ko Samui is the most built up of the islands and although beautiful, the effects of too much tourism is very clear. Buzzing around on our wee scooter and the delicious Thai food was great!

Oct 11, 2010 - Koh Samui

Arrive 11th depart 14th October 2010 After another mammouth journey and a bus driver with no idea where he's going,I arrived at Silver Beach Resort. The surroundings are beautiful but my room was pretty grim so I upgraded and am much happier! My resort is about 2km from Lamai and about 6km from Chaweng. I had a walk into Lamai and on arrival and got some tea! Tuesday morning I set out on sight seeing tour! Walked about 10km easily I reckon! Visited some interesting rocks...I'll upload photos when I've charged camera! Watched some Thai...

May 13, 2010 - One more day to go!

Hi Everyone, Well what's been going on during the last couple of days here in Koh Samui? Two days ago we hooked up with Mr. Jack. He took us on a day tour to many sights around the island ( or as many say here "iceland" ). We went on a tour of Wat Khum Aram. This is a temple where The body of Samui's most famous mummified monk, Loung Pordaeng, is on display here in a specially constructed building. When he died more than 20 years ago, he was sitting in a meditation position. He is still in that same position and his body shows few signs of...

May 10, 2010 - Somebody turn down the temperature!!!

Hi all, Ok, so I have been trying to make this entry for the last two days. The internet connection has been hit/miss. We have had a busy few days. Two days ago, we hired a speed boat to take us to Anthong National Marine Park. We snorkeled and kayaked. We also hiked up to a hidden lagoon on one of the islands. We had an amazing Thai lunch that was prepared by our guides. It was a great day of adventure. That evening we went to Chewang Stadium to watch some MuyThai Boxing matches. It was very interesting. Actually the light weight class,...

May 6, 2010 - Good morning Koh Samui

Hello all you snow people ( ok, only the ones in the west), Sorry, it's been 3 days since my last entry. Ever since we arrived here in Koh Samui it has been 100% downtown. Crashing on a beach chair and swimming in the ocean. The temperatures have not went below about 42/43degrees plus humidity. Yesterday morning it rained so hard that the streets were flooded. I have never seen so much rain coming down. It only lasted about 4 hours, then the rest of the day was fun in the sun. Our resort is fully booked, surprising given that the island...

Apr 30, 2010 - bo phut, koh samui, gulf of thailand

Been here for 2 days now. for anyone thinking of coming to koh samui, i'd thoroughly recommend u look at here rather than chaweng or lamai. its a lot quieter and far less westernised, no burger king or mcdonalds here thank god!! Haven't really got much to say, have been here 2 days and have spent most of the time sleeping, getting over jetlag. The island itself is beautiful, i'm hoping to get some photos on here soon so u can see where iom coming from. Went to a fishing village nearby called, imaginatively, the fishing village, and just...

Mar 17, 2010 - Bangkok (Laem Chabang) Thailand

Wed 17th March – Day 67 Bangkok (Laem Chabang) Thailand. We awoke early this morning as the ship manoeuvred its way, slowly, to our docking area, past lots of containers; breakfast was early as our tour left at 8.30. We did wonder if we would land here being as there was a lot of unrest over the current government. However the captain sent a message that due to the unrest we would make the stop but it was unwise to venture unescorted into Bangkok. The organised escorted tours would be reasonably safe, so off we went. The sky was pretty...

Jan 11, 2010 - Ko Samui

nach ko samui bin ich nur gefahren weil von dort der preiswerteste flug nach hanoi ging... nur dumm wenn man visa-on-arrival woertlich nimmt d.h. beim umsteigen in bangkok wurde mir freundlich, aber bestimmt klar gemacht, dass mich die vietnamesen NICHT einreisen lassen wuerden ! schade, dass ich schon in ko samui in der international-departure aus thailand ausgereist bin, so dass ich mich schon im international-transit bereich des groessten flughafens - den ich kenne - befand. was zur folge hatte, dass man mich durch die katakomben und...

Oct 22, 2009 - Ko Samui

We have been staying at a beautiful hotel, The Imperial Samui, on the island of Samui (ko means island) for the last three nights. It took us almost a whole day to fly here from Chaing Rai, two short one-hour flights with a 3-½ hour layover in Bangkok. Ko Samui is beautiful, a fairly large island in the middle of the Gulf of Thailand. The islands main industry is tourism, although the interior is still coconut plantations. The shoreline is fully developed, with nice hotels and beautiful beaches. The Imperial Samui Hotel is fantastic and...

Jun 7, 2009 - Massagen, Gemüse, Erholung und mehr

Nach aufregneden Fährfahrten kommt das königliche Paar im Urlaubsparadies Ko Samui an. Neben Massagen, sich sonnen, Drinks wird sehr gesund aus einheimischer Küche gegessen. Die Königin hat immer einen hochroten Kopf, da das Essen viel zu scharf für sie ist. Der Kanzler unternimmt noch einmal einen Versuch die Reiseroute spontan in Richtung Kambodscha und Vietnam zu verlgegen. Der Ausgang ist noch offen...
