Eat. Swim. Eat. Sleep. Swim. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.

It's quite possible that my blog posts will now slow considerably. What is there to tell you? The title says it all. We have entered the final phase of our big trip, what Martin has been looking forward to these last few months; the beach. And we still have a month left, exactly. Should be a pretty good month.

Like Mama, like son. Two fish in the water.
We are on Koh Lanta, an island in southern Thailand just south of Krabi. The sun is shining, the water's warm and our evening sun ensures a spectacular sunset each and every night. It's quite nice to do so little for a while. We barbecued fresh seafood with some Dutch and German families that we met. We rented a motorbike for a few days and checked out various beaches, but mostly we are laying low. We are meeting friends in Krabi on February 3 for a week, but until then we have no plans.

Budget accommodations means we put Simon to work.
Fresh squid!
Our current home.
Watching the sunset.
Family photo!
Sunset with outline of Koh Phi Phi.
The only disappointment so far has been the food. Most people are here for the beach, so the food is quite inferior to food we had in Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Most menus seem to have as much western food as Thai food. It's Thai food, so it's still good, but it's not great. But we have some time to keep exploring and find those hidden gems.



  1. Hope that the australian guy isn't your new neighbour :-0. Have fun!

  2. looks like everything i dreamed!!!

  3. Love that family photo! Everyone looks so relaxed and happy! I still expect photos even if you have nothing to say!

  4. Ahhhhhh..... I love it. The sunkissed family photo said it all. Enjoy some downtime at the beach and have fun swimming! There is nothing that makes me happier than swimming with Lily. So glad Simon loves the water as much as his Mama!
