$1USD=34 Baht

Hey Y’all! Here’s our budget from Thailand. After we got robbed, we did keep costs down to about $15 a day including our hotel, but before this we were spending about $25-40 a day. 435 more words

Crown Lanta Revisited

It has been a very busy month – between visitors, holidays and work I genuinely don’t know where the past 6 weeks have gone. Well I do…mainly eating, drinking and holidaying but that’s besides the point. 737 more words

22 hour journey to Koh Lanta, Krabi

It felt so good putting on a backpack again! In search of tranquil islands, this time we had our eyes on Koh Lanta. It took us a year to get round to sorting the photos from this trip because we had such a great time we took thousands of pictures as if the finger was stuck to the shutter button. 1,164 more words

Looking for Leo on Koh Phi Phi

Our next stop was back to island life, and one I was particularly looking forward to – Koh Phi Phi. It’s actually two islands; the one where people live and visit is Phi Phi Don, and the smaller, un-habited island is Phi Phi Ley.   661 more words

just like Leo

I had absolutely no intention of going to Koh Pha Ngan, partly because I can’t spell it without looking it up. Even now, I can’t spell it without looking it up, and to be fair I’m pretty sure i can’t pronounce if properly either. 635 more words
