Me and Koh Phi Phi

My solo journey has begun. Mike, Krong and both of their parents left for Bangkok today! It was fantastic to be able to travel with them, and I wish them a safe voyage home. As for my journey, I feel like its starting all over again! I hopped onto a longtail boat to head to Hat Yao (long beach) to seek a bit more of a peacful (and inexpensive) place to stay. I was a bit dismayed by all the “rooms full” signs. But I found the place I sought and they had a bungalow available! For 500 baht I get a bed, fan and mosquito net – and a 2 min walk to the beach! No clubs blasting music here either. Just me and Koh Phi Phi. I hiked to a remote and practically deserted beach on the other side of the island – it was incredible! Snorkeling was also the best thus far. My skin isn’t fairing quite so well – pink has turned into bright red, and quite uncomfortable at that. As they charge exhorbident rates for Aloe – I found a beachfront aloe massage for just under $10! Much needed, and as you can see below, the view was spectacular. I relished every drop of my tea as nature put on an incredible show… I haven’t felt this relaxed in a LONG time.
Oh, and my visa for vietnam came through! On-line was definitely the way to go! Even cheaper than at the US embassy! Its been a good day!

  1. Pictures look great! I wish I was there too!! And I’m glad to hear you were able to put that chapter about how to get a thai massage in the thai language course to good use… 😉
    Enjoy the rest of your days on Phi Phi!
