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.
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! ;)
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. :)
Outside Jungle Roots Bar, Kwang Pao Beach, Khanom.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!! :)
This makes me very upset. How can tourists ”not know” anymore? Show this smart, beautiful & special animals some RESPECT!

Här kommer en liten Morgon Hälsning från oss här i Khanom..
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!
Have been very busy the last week with another Camping trip, friends/guests ,roadtrips and working out at the gym etc. But got a lot of pictures to share so will try to do that this week.
Here is some pics from my new favorite restaurant in Khanom the ”Krua Khlong Kura” its so pretty by the River and the food is great!
So after talking and trying to organize it for such a long time we finally did it!
We went CAMPING on a quiet Jungle Beach here in Khanom and it was AMAZING!!
Of course I forgot my camera:( but was lucky enough to use my friends phone fore some quick captures.
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..
Here is a little amateur movie clip from our beautiful weekend in Koh Phayam..
Can’t wait to return to Koh Phayam but of course is nice to be back at Khanom:)
More pictures coming soon..
