Koh Lanta, Thailand

Written on: Thursday January 10th, 2008

A journal entry from: S.E.Asia

Here we are finally, after close to 30 hours of travel. We had 6 hours to wait at the new Suvarnabhumi airport. Bev took advantage of the wait to have her first Thai massage. It was a great idea. She slept like a baby our first night, while I did not. We landed at Krabi town, a jump off point for travel further south, and took a cab to our hotel. Krabi has no beaches and so is fairly quiet tourist wise but the hotel has a lovely location on the river. We were impressed by how quiet the motor scootors are and how many new pick up trucks we saw. Krabi has a cute downtown and a great night market where we dined on grilled red snapper (head and all) . From there it was a 3 hour boat ride to the island of Koh Lantra where we have booked a bungalow for a week. It's pretty nice here-long beaches, sunny skies and great Thai food. A week of sea, sun and sand before embarking on the great adventure.

Your first photos could not be of more stark contrast to the wet, dark, gloomy weather we are currently experiencing; nonetheless, all is well on the home front.

We are envious...Thai massages, night markets, fried fresh fish and the warmth and beauty of the islands. ENJOY! Looking forward to following your journey.
