SCRIBBLING EXPLORERS

We haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on our list.

Never again

Today is going to be a very long day. In a bid to save money we’re embarking on what should be an 18 hour journey from Koh Samui to Pattaya. A trip that could quite easily have been achieved in a few hours by plane. Oh no we’ll be fine we thought, we’ll save money, the overnight drive will be fun. Fun, ha, how wrong could we be. Dear diary.. 9.30: I get up and jump straight in the pool for an earl [...]

One of those amazing days

We woke up to the sun beaming through our windows this morning. Finally a sunny day, we can go out and enjoy the island instead of being stuck inside. What made today extra special that we took it upon ourselves to buy bacon, eggs and beans so we could have a decent start to the day. We had to run downstairs to cook some toast in the hotels toaster but it was worth it. Amazing! The first stop on o [...]

First sight of a mummified monk

First thing on the agenda today was finding a motorbike to hire. As our hotel is quite centrally located on the island, it’s not near any beaches meaning we can’t just pop out and stroll to nearby restaurants. This isn’t a problem for us but does mean we need some wheels. After stupidly sitting outside the nearest rental shop for 15 minutes we then read the opening hours properly and realised they [...]

Mmm homemade spag bol

It’s been a while since we’ve been in a hotel with a buffet breakfast so we were eager beavers this morning and down by 8:30am. We thought this would be early enough but apparently not, half the food was gone and after waiting about 10 minutes it looked like it wasn’t getting refilled. Note to self, get down by 8am tomorrow. It wasn’t too bad though we had some eggs on toast, cereal and I tried th [...]

Koh Samui Rally

The plan today was to meet up with Gary and Mark early and explore Koh Samui on our hired bike. After a few non respondent what's app messages though we realised they probably had a heavy night and were dead to the world. So we donned our helmets and set off alone. The bike's no longer feeling as scary and we made it to Tesco to pick up a few bits in record time. I'm getting quite attached to the [...]
