Thailand was to be warm, sunny and welcoming and we had, cold, wet and miserable but not for long.
We started in Krabi, a little town in the south. We rented a little 4×4 to go around and started with Tiger temple, to get to the top you have to climb 1237 steps, yep, and so we climbed and we climbed, and we climbed, and we got there the last few steps, to this amazing view . and a giant golden Buddha. On our way down I saw this , it was a pretty cool contraption, don’t you think?
- The hot springs, it was lush. Basically it was a 40 to 42 degrees natural hot water spring and it felt so good after those stairs. , We splashed about for a few hours and then headed to the emerald pool, so called because the water was green, well not the water but the surrounding of the pool .
Here we just chilled by the beach all day. It was just sweet baby…. , , and the sea can be like this or like this , . and beautiful sunsets .
KOH TAO (turtle island)
This is where we chilled for a month, snorkelling, scootering, eating, swimming, diving, partying and learning to scuba dive. We just wanted to stay there.
, , , , , ,sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.. toooootalyyyyy.
. , on Chrismas eve..partying. with our super Xmas tree made out of palm leaves….
We also stayed had New Year’s eve here and it was sweet as our friends came over for dinner. , , that’s Phil from Master Divers, the awesome photographer and Suzy, Rachel’s best friend, and here comes Rachel….
After dinner we went to the Lotus bar on the beach to watch the fire show . And then it was 2012….yeahhhhhhh
and we lit paper lanterns. .
We left Koh Tao on the 3rd but in between all that we had…this and that , or this or that . and more of that
Basically Koh Tao was the best so far, I felt so comfortable like I was at home. I wish we could have stayed there and bought a house, learned Thai, bought a motor bike and dived everyday and become a dive master and an underwater videographer. It totally rocked dude.
