Living The Dream~

Last Friday, October 10, Heather, Erica, and I boarded a Lomprayah bus that took us about six hours south to hop on a catamaran and sail another three hours to make it to Koh Samui. Koh Samui is a stunning island on the southeastern coast of Thailand, my dad’s best friend, who I refer to as my uncle lives there. My Uncle Peter graciously let us stay in his perfect house in Lamai. The house was beyond beautiful; it was perched on top of a hill that over looked part of the jungle and the ocean, he also owns the land around his house so the view will stay natural and uninterrupted. We arrived Saturday around mid-morning and spent that day at the beach and then we went to a Muay Thai boxing match at night, which was by far one of the best things I have done in Thailand. Sunday we hopped on a boat to visit Angthong National Marine Park, where we went snorkeling, hiking, and kayaking, needless to say it was breathtaking. For our last full day on Monday we had to get a visa extension for Heather, so after dealing with that we ran around the island on the scooters, we visited The Big Buddha Temple, got a foot massage in Chaweng, and somehow ended up stuck at the top of a giant hill in the dark and had to call my uncle to get us down. The trip was amazing, until we had to leave. Leaving was hard enough, but what made it worse was that it was storming, so our three hour boat ride turned into four hours with people vomiting the whole way, then our bus was an hour late, my phone died, and more people were puking on the bus. Despite the hassle of traveling to get there and back, it was totally worth it, Koh Samui is lovely and I look forward to visiting again.

 

I of course made a video and there are also a few pictures, Enjoy xx
