Last day

It’s our sad final day in Ko Samet.  Spent the morning playing at the beach, building mountains, swinging and swimming. It’s a beautiful warm morning. I would be remiss to omit pictures of the most loungey cat I have ever met.  Zoe could pick up this cat she dubbed Friendly and it would keep its […]

Ko Samet

Well this place hasn’t changed!!! They did get an ATM, but that’s about it.  Service is still slow, food a bit pricey,  hit or miss wifi only at the restaurant, and too-thin curtains.  But,  it’s the best beach ever! Sametville has it’s own awesome stretch of beach that is perfect for a family.  It’s not […]

Wait wait wait

Today we stood in THE LONGEST immigration line ever!!  Going into Thailand from Cambodia at Poipet was insane.  It was organized but so very slow. Our driver came to get us promptly at 7:30 this morning and we wound our way out of Siem Reap to the north.  The road was nice and smooth thank […]

Mid-Winter Getaway 6 – Travel day

Spent the morning packing up our sprawl if stuff around the cabin. It’s amazing how much we can spread out from just two backpacks. The kids had some leftovers for breakfast and looked for the kitties to say goodbye. From there we walked back down to Railay West beach and hopped in a boat for […]

Mid-Winter Getaway 5 – Laid up

Welp, I felt like crap yesterday morning.  Bound to happen sometime with all our traveling .. I got some bad food.  After numerous trips to the toilet it was obvious I was going to spend most of the day in the fetal position. I did help Zoe with school and then she started to feel […]

Mid-Winter Getaway 4 – Some changes

Whew we had a rough night.  Neither BRYAN nor I slept well, and the kids even woke and complained.  Our hut near the beach was just too close to the party beach. It was loud late at night and then top that with no hot water, evening-only electric, and a simply run down vibe.  Meant […]

Mid-Winter Getaway 3 – Another airplane

Of course we couldn’t sleep in this morning, so we packed up our goods – kind of a hassle carrying around winter clothes – and found a park.  Out of town past the end of the line is Pasir Ris park. It was a nice and huge green space full of open land and jungle. […]

Post Trip napping

Well the red eye flight back from Bangkok was uneventful except for Avi puking. Something he ate didn’t sit well. He was so restless rumbling around as we all tried to sleep on top of each other in our 3 seats. I was getting super sleepy and tired of his inability to get comfy and […]
