... market nearby where we purchased our Thailand souvenir - a model motorbike made out of a Chang beer can. That will go nicely with the other model tuk tuk we bought in India and remind us of our days out on the mopeds. On one of our days we hired a motorbike and conquered the Mae Sa Valley loop - a 100 km route through the nearby national park. Halfway through we got caught short in a torrential downpour and had to seek shelter in a nearby hut. We enjoyed it so much we ...
Last bit, while in Sydney we booked Disney world for a week! This is very exciting for us and the back end of the trip is coming together nicely. We're almost all booked up for the rest of our trip now! We're 9 months in with 4 to go, so about 2/3 through, and a good 1/3 to go. I hope everyone at home is well, and we look forward to hearing from you soon. It won't be long until we update with a plan for the next 4 weeks. Have fun and all the best!

It’s more laid back than Karon. Maybe a bit more rural and not so
commercialised but unfortunately it is going that way fast. There’s plenty

Kata Noi is about half the size
of Kata and is really classy compared to the others. The bay and beach are
beautiful set to a backdrop of scenic forested ...
