Travel day: Koh Phangan to Koh Tao

We left our favorite beach on Wednesday to check out Koh Tao – the small island just north of Koh Phangan known for great scuba diving. It’s a chill little island, and we’re staying in a busier beach town than before. We had about and hour long ferry ride, then found a place to stay … Continue reading

Amazing Koh Ma

We are on the beach of our dreams. We went snorkeling again today, and will bring the Go Pro tomorrow. It’s like swimming in an aquarium. The urchins are my favorite – they are so spiny and show up out of nowhere in shallow water, but are really beautiful when hovering just above. We decided … Continue reading

Day…4?… Koh Pangnan

We discovered Koh Ma beach today, just one dip north from our beach, and have decided to stay two more nights. No photos exist because we forgot all the possible cameras when we went there to snorkel today. I am not a water baby, and have only snorkeled a handful of times, but this was the best ever. I immediately made the rounds of the hotels on the beach. I can’t wait to share it all with you.

Travel day : Ko Lanta to Koh Phangan

After 4 days on Ko Lanta, we made the decision to skip Cambodia on this trip. From where we are, it will add a lot of complex travel and expense, and we’re hoping to return soon to see everything we missed. So we set off for the Gulf of Thailand. While there are a million … Continue reading

Sunrise to sunset.

Yesterday we woke up to the sunrise in our rickety bungalow on stilts at the Power Beach “Resort” on Phi Phi ready for a travel day. We took one last look at our hillside private beach abode and boarded the simple yet effective longtail boat taking us to the main pier. There we would catch … Continue reading

Half point weekend: Koh Phi Phi

This weekend we had quite a few adventures. Saturday morning we moved from Relax Resort to Power Beach Resort. Both are on the same beach, so we did it barefoot in bathing suits. Then we spent the morning on the beach – the water here is so perfect. At 2pm, we decided to hike into … Continue reading

Viewpoint – 30 min +/- an hour.

We took the route less traveled. It was at the guidance of our hotel owner, though she mostly just pointed up the hill saying “yes viewpoint, yes town”. There was a fork in the path and a sign contradicting the previous directions with “30 min” written in paint next to an arrow. Unfortunately we already … Continue reading

Travel Day…take 2

Totally unimpressed with Ao Nang, we made a quick decision Friday morning to skip town. We decided on Phi Phi as we have reservations on Koh Lanta starting Monday and wanted to try another island on the way. After a bus and ferry and longtail ride (and the requisite agency and phone calls and ticketing … Continue reading
