I always had a thing for Thai houses/huts. They come in so many different kind of styles and shapes. They might be basic & simple but so cute and creative and functional. Love them.

Lunch @ the River Restaurant 🐟

What a nice day… 

Started out with the lovely oldstyle outdoor Gym.

     

 Then catched up with some good friends.

Then had a really nice lunch with the guys by the River. That restaurant is fantastic with its beautiful settings and good food. 👌🏻

  
   

  

  
  

  
  

  
  

 

Now off on a Beach walk with Cissi while watching the sun set.

Shakes and Sunset @ Sandy Beach Bar

A good place to relax and watch the Sunset, have a shake and eat right on the Beach. They also have really tasty Pizza! Give it a try if you are in Khanom.

This is my favourite Waterfall hidden in the Jungle 10 min outside Khanom. Sometimes I enjoy to swim here even more than at the Beach, cause this water is so fresh cold and clean. Like it best in the late afternoon when the Sun sets and cast beautiful rays through the Jungle and make the most amazing reflections on the water. The feeling to float around there in the green water and lissen to the pouring falls and the animals/insect making their Jungle-sounds is so special. Its like a Natural Spa. A must try if you visit Khanom! ;)

20150421-223954.jpgI do <3 Coconut trees, so nice to have them in the garden for an extra exotic feel and to be able to drink a fresh young Coconut whenever feel like it. Luxury!

Thinking back to one of our nicest Camping adventures in Khanom this season.

Amazing time with good friends and little Cissi. Looking forward for us all to be at the same place (back in Khanom) again so we can add more pages to the ”Camping Diaries”. <3

 

Camping @ Koh Wang Nok, Khanom Part:1

So our trip started out from Jungle Roots Bar @ Kwang Pao Beach where we gathered 9.am to load all our stuff into the longtail boat. The boat ride out to Koh Wang Nok then took 30-40 min, the Sea was just perfect and still with no waves in sight.

Our friend brought his little puppy dog  FoFo aswell so Cissi had a friend to play with. :)

As I had been to Koh Wang Nok before, one time last year I thought it was a good idea to go to the West side of the Island where ”P’Sua”(Tiger) aka Robinson lives. He is the caretaker of the Island and stays there permanently with his 3 dogs and random fishermen who dock there from time to time.

IMG_2499 IMG_2346 IMG_2489

P’Sua was happy to see us and the gifts we came bearing. But he was a little bit concerned over that we brought our two dogs cause one of his pitbulls would kill them in a second he said. And we believed him and decided to set up our Camp as far away from his house as possible(200m:). He kept his dog in a chain the whole weekend for our safety. So no problem, and the other two dogs of his was super friendly.

IMG_2384 IMG_2347 IMG_2350 IMG_2354

We found a good spot for our tents and then we just enjoyed the Island.

Swimming, Sunbathing, Shellhunts, Fishing, Rafting, Trekking, Music & Drinks etc.

A nice, relaxing good Day! :)

Our first evening we had a great time going around with the raft in the glittery water. The Sunset was beautiful and we ate superfresh fish bbq, drank and enjoyed ourselves under the Stars. <3

Oh take me back to this beautiful untouched Island! Im starting to realize more and more that luxury isn’t expensive hotels, fancy cars & gold and diamonds.. At least not for me! For me it is places like this Island where you can be alone on a white beach, swim in the clear water and enjoy unspoiled nature and life in the Sea as you hardly don’t see it anymore. Feeling so blessed.

The ultimate Camping experiance✨

Tomorrow it’s finally time for a Camping trip out on the Islands outside Khanom! So EXCITED as this has been on my wishlist for 2 years! Yaaaay!! :)

A good Moment <3

Two nights ago we went to Kwang Pao Beach (North Khanom) to eat @ one of the Seafood Restaurants there while watching the Sunset.

It was such a nice and relaxing evening, pure magic! I live for those moments and trying to have one magic moment every day, why not!? ;)

M A R K E T

Har varit busy busy senaste veckan då jag och några vänner har organiserat och planerat vår egen lilla ”Khanom Crafts & Clothing Fair” =Marknad! ;)

På Marknaden sålde vi Mans handgjorda Väskor, Crochet hattar, Kakor, Teknik Prylar, Böcker, Nya & second hand kläder, Lyktor/Lampor, Kuddfodral, Smycken, Hoola Hoops och Prydnadsgrejer m.m.

Själv sålde jag min första handgjorda Väska, har gjort flera men aldrig sålt någon innan så det kändes roligt! :)

En Morgon Hälsning✨

Här kommer en liten Morgon Hälsning från oss här i Khanom..

20150220-104926.jpgDenna vackra Lotusen växer i vår lilla fiskdamm där den har sällskap av ca. 50 guppies.

20150220-105311.jpgMan plockar Ka Prao/Basilika till dagens matlagning.

20150220-105502.jpgImorse var det min tur att laga mat så självklart Phad Ka Prao som jag aldrig tröttnar på! ;)

Njuter av mitt liv här och nu, right now från hängmattan med Cissi men ska dricka en kokosnöt strax här och promenera bort till gymmet för en timmes träning innan det bär av till ThaNoi Waterfall för ett svalkande dopp i djungeln. Man han är busy med att göra väskor till en marknad som jag anordnar till nästa helg, mer om det sen.. Ha en härlig dag mina fina läsare!

Good Morning from Khanom..

Had a nice Morning walk today together with Cissi and a bunch of random beach dogs. Happy to see that someone came up with a great idea how to use all the styrofoam that the ocean brings up on the Beach. :)
