Khao Sok

A few days ago we left for Phang Nga and when we arrived it wasn't what we expected so we got an incredible inexpensive room and walked through the town. Phang Nga caters more to the tourist, but not one that speaks or reads English. And the tours weren't ... Read more >

Motorbike Mania

TRY DRIVING A MOTORBIKE ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE STREET! On top of that, there's no speed limit, and 1 1/2 lanes going each way- which both cars and scooters drive on! Asians make our video games because they want us to experience what its like ... Read more >

These last two days have been relaxing but uneventful and we've both got the travel bug again so we are going to head to the northwest side of the island-stay there a few days, then hop over Thailand's mainland to the west coast islands. Yesterday's ... Read more >

Tuesday, 16 Jan 2007 | Views [497]

Welcome to our humble a-bungalow: Yesterday, after waking up to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach, we set out on our 2 1/2 hour trek to find a cheaper, better place to stay, that we had come across on the internet. It was the first time ... Read more >

We made it!

Thursday, 11 Jan 2007 | Views [367]

 22 hours of flying, few hours of lay-overs, an angry immigration lady, quite a bit of haggeling with taxi drivers (3 usd for a 40 min. ride), and we're here. Our hostel has a good location and the rooms have AC, having AC is huge, because it's 89 at ... Read more >
