Last morning

Our 7th and final morning on Koh Samet Tumtim Resort. It has been the perfect amount of time, just enough sun without burning. It’s that feeling that you are ready to return home and face the world.

Tubtim

At least I think that’s what it’s called! We moved hotel and beach to a quieter part of the island. We are now in these gorgeous little beach front bungalows on a beach with no sun loungers – heaven.
There is this amazing floating deck about 50m off shore, where you can lie in the sun and do silly stunts into the water.

Action Adventure

Some more holiday snaps 🙂
(Hired an ATV to explore some further more desolate beaches. And WoW! The roads are so steep and pot holed and muddy you need an ATV! So many poor sods stuck in the mud and pushing scooters!!!
Best part is that fewer people make it last the first few slippy bits so we found four amazing coves all with different charm, food, and types of swimming. Some shallow and lagoon-like, others choppy and perfect for body surfing. A beach for every mood:)

Beach time fun

A rather amusing group of girls trying to do sexy photos in the waves- instead of being sultry they ended up head over heels, coughing up sea water and with their bikinis all twisted. Was highly amusing to watch and I took a sneaky pic of the ridiculous trio.
The rest are just one lovely shots of the lady making Robbies Som Tam and grilled chicken (think am going to blow this photo up and frame it) , beach scenes and me bring happy doing what I do best.

Summer holiday

How cute is this pug??? He was sitting under the table while we booked our speed boat to the island 🙂

Off for Song Kran!

Off we go to Koh Samed!!! So excited this trip could not come fast enough or at a better time. We are both so stressed with life in general and future plans.
We hired a driver this time instead of driving ourselves, which is very luxurious as one doesn’t have to worry about traffic or directions or parking!

Sam, our driver, although chatty, is extremely well versed and knowledgable about world news, tourism, celebrities and films. Very entertaining.

We will be on the beach by 11am.
