Where I stayed
The Air travel experience isn't quite what it used to be at international airports but when you get to Ko Samui it is a different experience. The best way to describe the airport is to think of a luxury beach hotel but with a super fast check-in. I have never seen tropical fish above the urinals before even at a top restaurant let alone in an airport toilet.
After a short taxi ride we arrived at our beach bungalow In darkness. We managed a quick beer and cocktail before bedtime. Not before however we had enjoyed renditions of John Lennon and John Denver from the local Thai holiday band. My suggestion for something by "Snow Patrol" resulted in an extended laughter period from the other English tourists at the bar - I could only assume that they had overindulged in something you shouldn't or had I finally cracked the art of comic timing
Anyhow "it's a funny old world!"
1. European girl playing on the beach wanting an ice cream. Thai boy selling ice cream looking like he wants to play on the beach....
2. Wifi everywhere - so now there is wifi on the beach, up the mountain. When we finally invent teleporting we can retire as a species as there will be no adventure left!
3. There's always somebody better off than you... there's always a better lounge chair position, a better class of air travel, a better choice of meal on the menu. What we must always remember though is to be especially kind to those who are "worse off".
Anyhow getting a bit deep now and so just to finish I must mention the devil worshipers on the plane from Heathrow. How weird a group is that with their "worship Satan - cuddle kittens" t-shirts. I'm sure we have not seen the last of them!!
