Ko Samet and Bangkok Again

After the incredible heat of Cambodia we were craving some time on the beach and in the sea. So it was rather lucky that we needed to travel back to Thailand before coming home. The island of Ko Samet was the logical choice as it is within easy reach of Bangkok and close to the…

Treetops – Khao Sok National Park, Thailand

Who says a honeymoon should be restful?! We spent just 2 nights in Bangkok before flying south to Surat Thani from where we were collected by taxi and taken to Treetops Guest House in the Khao Sok National Park. Here we spent 2 nights in a tree-house, which we shared with a colony of ants…

Clandestine Musings from Bangkok (sshhh Claire is asleep)

A quick update for visitors who don’t know us in the real world. Since getting home in June 2011 we have returned to our jobs, got married and we are now on our honeymoon. All mixed in with 9 months of seriously missing the travelling life. Claire doesn’t even know that our blog is back…

Anybody Watching?

Is anybody expecting me to make some clandestine blog entries without Claire knowing?

A Quick Update

This morning we left the incredible island of Ko Lanta in Thailand and flew (via Krabbi) to Kuala Lumpur. Photographs and words to follow tomorrow hopefully.

Ko Samui, Thailand

Things were definately looking up too as the catamaran journey to Ko Samui went swimmingly. No waves and…

Ko Tao, Thailand

After the traumatic catamaran journey to Ko Tao, we couldn’t wait to check into our accommodation, lose the backpacks and hit the beach. We had pre-booked a basic bungalow a few minutes walk from Sairee Beach, which is Koh Tao’s main beach and not too far from the pier, so we thought it would be…

Bangkok to Ko Tao

It seems that our journeys are becoming the star of the show, and not always for good reasons. To get to Ko Tao we had to take a night train from Bangkok, a coach ride and then an early morning boat ride. The train journey went like a dream. We arrived at the station in…
