After our first week of volunteering they give you the weekend off. So we decided to head to the island of Koh Lanta. We heard about it from some of our volunteer friends. It’s a great island that isn’t as crowded as some of the more touristy islands.
It was about a 3 hour journey. You have to take a couple ferries to get to the island. We are almost there.
We finally made it to our bungalow. We stayed at The Narima Resort. It’s just 30 bungalows on a cliff right on the beach. No TV’s or telephones in the rooms. Which is perfect. They do have wifi though which I was very happy about.
Matt went right for the hammock.
They have there own small private beach. So we headed right for the beach just in time for sunset.
Not a bad view for our first night on the island.
You can get a Thai massage right on the beach for 300 Baht. Which is about $9. A 1 hour massage. I love Thailand.
This was our beach. The bungalows are up in the trees.
They have this great little bar right on the sand.
Headed back to the room.
A short walk around town.
Anther great lunch for under $8 for all four of us.
Matt getting his first Thai massage. He wants one every day now.
They have xmas trees in Thailand.
Our favorite restaurant on the island.
We decide to do some scuba diving. So we jumped on the boat and headed to some other islands about 1 hour from Koh Lanta.
This is Matt and Nadine’s 2nd time diving. They are really getting comfortable in the water.
As you can see Stephanie is is a pro under the water now.
Between dive the kids had some fun jumping off the boat. Check out Matts form.
Not a bad place to spend the day.
Stephanie grab a few pictures of some fish.
She even got a shot of this leopard shark. Sharks are cruising by and she is still calm enough to get a shot. Go Wife!!!
When we got back from diving we rented some scooters to cruise around town.
We had to eat here one more time before we had to head back to Trang.
Enough for now. Check back again soon.
