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. 👌🏻

The drive there is just lovely so it’s a perfect Day/Road-trip for someone staying in Khanom, or going to or from Donsak Pier as it is really close by.

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!

A beautiful sunset in Sichon✨

We went to this pretty place twice down @ Sichon, its so perfect for a Sunset Lover like myself..

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.

Good Camping BAD End!

So this Camping tour we went out to one of the Islands just outside Khanom and had an AMAZING time there!! So chilled and nice Island, Koh Wang Nok<3

Enjoyed myself a lot only sad that on the way back from the Island to Khanom in the Longtail boat a FREAKIN CENTIPEDE bit me! What are the odds on that? In a boat? :/ So the last days I had some severe pain, fever and a swollen face.. But today Im feeling much better! :)

Will post some more Camping pics in the near future.

Good Night..

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!! :)

Overworked’ Elephant Collapses And Dies Under Tourists’ Weight

This makes me very upset. How can tourists ”not know” anymore? Show this smart, beautiful & special animals some RESPECT!

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!

I learned that its just to go do it! And not wait around for those people who says they want to go but never does. This time I just said to Man in the Morning Lets go Camping tonight! And he said Yes, so we did! :)

We saw a beautiful Sunset, had the Beach all to ourselves not a living soul there, the Stars were so bright, it was plankton(mareld) which always brings a magical feeling, the Sunrise was amazing with a big red Sun. We had coffee in the Morning and Cissi was the perfect camping guard dog, my morning dip was one of my best ever, what a feeling while watching the Sun rise!

So it was kind of a perfect experiance and Im ready for another night under the Stars..

Koh Phayam <3

 

 

Here is a little amateur movie clip from our beautiful weekend in Koh Phayam..
