While planning my trip around the world starting in Thailand, my best friend Robby and his girlfriend Barbara decided to go to Thailand as well. At first it seemed as though we wouldn't be able to hook up, as we were on different itineraries. Kinda dumb huh? Best friends since we were in high school, go around the world to Thailand at the same time, and to not hook up? Well it turned out, that Robby had no idea where he was going in Thailand, and as soon as Barbara and I spoke, we realized our paths would cross.
Turns out the paths crossed on Phi Phi. I had already been there for about eight or nine days when they arrived. They thought they would be able to get in and suprise me. They understemated the islands small size, when a ferry pulls in, you know about it. I waited for them on the pier rockin out to my iStod when their ferry pulled up. I had such an awesome time suprising them, I forgot to take enough pictures.
After the first evening for them on the island, we took out a longtailed boat.
We hung out on the powdery sand and drank a few sodas, and realized everything was perfect. Rob pulled out iPod speakers, and we played Bob Marley for hours. We then decided to head over to Monkey Beach. Small problem though.........low tide. The boat couldn't get out for another few hours. We looked around, and realized that if that was our only problem for the day-that we would "have to" stay in Maya Bay, then we were truly in paradise.
Traveling about in the way that I am is a lot of fun, but also a lot of hard work. Not seeing friends and family is the hardest though. To see your best friends in the whole world, and to hang out with them in that setting, was hard to describe. I've told you that I consider myself lucky, and I know I am........
