My first full day here I decided to go out on an adventure to check out the island. There is only one main dirt road here, and only motorbikes, if I was more comfortable with my motorbike skills i would of rented one , but I prefer to be the passenger more than the driver.
I only came across a family of monkeys on my morning walk, that I stopped and waited for them to allow me to pass. Most wild monkeys are harmless, and are more afraid of you then you of them
As I was walking a local on a motorbike passed me, " Hello bungalow #5!" ( that is the bungalow I am staying in at my place) as I said, this is a small island.
I found a sign and dirt road leading down to another set of bungalows and a beautiful secluded beach. I stopped for some lunch, or some attempt to have some lunch. You see , I am on an unplanned "cleansing" diet at the moment, I have been on this diet since I had some bad shrimp at my last meal in koh lanta. So nothing that goes in me , stays in me....I need not say more. So my new diet consists of water, fanta, and shakes ( after 6 pm) Hopefully my new diet will only last a couple of days.
I met a very interesting older , way too tan, gentleman named Paul who is from Amsterdam and runs the bungalows that i stopped to drink my fanta at for lunch. It was his last day there for the season, and was heading back to Amsterdam that day and after his last 2 guests leave, his workers will be closing things up for the season. He only has 7 bungalows, and said that he gets some guests who come out and stay for months at at time
I am traveling back to bangkok in the morning to start my journey home. I look forward to another peaceful night of sleep on the island.
