    Violent owner

    The owner of Blue Tongue is a violent man with zero compassion. He allows the house to fall into unsanitary conditions and if you cross him, he will scream in your face and kick you out. Do not give this man your money.

    ... it not been for free entry haha! So for an hour, I was wandering around trying to interest myself in art... In fairness some of the paintings and sculptures I saw were very good, but some were pretty freaky and I could probably have done better myself! At least I tried! Normal service resumed in the afternoon, when I returned to my spot by the river for another book reading session. I have consciously tried to do/see something different everyday, whether it be ...

    ... for mountains and trees and had Julia agreed. An hour and a half majority is a steep, single lane mountain road. An occasional break in the trees opens spectacular views and its a struggle to watch the route. The girls looked up from their tablets briefly. The end of the road is 3000ft above see level and called Lambington National Park; we decided we were staying. Lambington is 206 square km of pristine mountain rainforest. With little development and just a single road ...

    ... warm climate to be in, surprisingly even in winter time as well. I packed a few singlets and some board shorts for the beach and pools. I generally didn't need to pack much as it is really cheap in Thailand and at the markets you can stock up with clothes.
