... and see what happens. Tea is in the dining hall and consists of one cup of hot chocolate. Another first for me but loved it by the end. Then after tea you can go for a hot spring bath. Picture this. 5-6 burley men at a time floating very Roman style in boiling hot spring in the evening dusk , occasionally brushing against each other by accident of course. I thought this is madness having a hot spring be in this heat but it was incredible in the open air listening to ...

After a week on the islands we felt we needed a break from being beach bums (haha first world problem) so we made our way inland to see the jungle at Khao Sok National Park.

... bordered the boat about 15 minutes later than the departure time. I was expecting a pretty smooth sailing as all the boats we have been on in Asia have been amazingly calm. So we sat inside first. I think you know where this is going. It wasn’t calm, it was one of the roughest boat rides I’ve been on and Koh Tao was the third and final stop.
