Where I stayed
The boat trip went to:-
Pictures speak a thousand words – so see photo’s below.
The speedboat was not perhaps as authentic as the Thai long tail boats but it did cut the journey time by half, giving more time swimming and snorkelling.
We have been here at Ao Nang beach for a week and are due to move on to Kho Lanta a bit further south, we both agree that time seems to be flying by. We are really enjoying it and are trying to make the most of every experience and everyday.
We actually bumped into someone at Bangkok airport we worked with fifteen years ago back in the old days at the NHS– what a small world! We also found the first McDonald's of our trip, but only gave in to a couple of ice creams, they were excellent value (@ 7 baht) and just as cold and creamy!
Glad everyone seems to be enjoying the blog, its good to get all the e-mails and messages. We have had very limited e-mail and internet access over the last week, so sorry (mainly Mum) if we have not been in contact much.
It’s a big world out here and the southern Thailand islands are truly stunning, yet in common with the world over the locals seem to take it all for granted.

PS: Anne has forgiven me for stealing her e-mail and posting it as part of the last blog, but she can not be bothered to rise from the sunbed to write again so soon.
