      ... and we sit in our hotel like 'uuhh... what was past Shannon thinking'... We were glad that in the case of Georgetown we had accurately estimated how long we would need there.

      It took about 9 or 10 hours to get from Krabi to Georgetown via minibus and car. The boarder crossing was pretty easy, although I did get accused of overstaying on my Thai visa because the officer lacked basic reading skills. We arrived in Georgetown at about 8, settled ...

      ... to the other last time... no need but they still pushed and ran! nothing like that this time, although Alicia did point out that the tourists who we saw up here were different to those we saw wandering around old town.
