Finally, vacation....
One day in Bangkok is more than enough to arrange things and buy some presents for the guys back home. In Kao San it's hard though to bargain things down to rockbottom. You'd better check out the surrounding streets if you are craving for a Diesel jeans (around 400 B.) or a cool t-shirt (100-150 B.). Tomorrow we leave for Ko Samet, the island closest to Bangkok. Ko Chang and Ko Phi Phi seem to be nicer, but we are not in the mood for long distance travel anymore. In other words, Koh Samed it will be.

So, what do a satisfied but tired father and his son do after 4 weeks of intensive travel? Exactly, nothing! And Koh Samed is the right place to do that. Okay, it's very touristic and if you are looking for tranquility an privacy you have to look hard.
Chilling on the beach
But if your main goals are beach, beer and burgers, then there is plenty to choose from. We stayed in the Silversand, a beach resort with sober but spacy bungalows, a good restaurant, a nice terras, great lounge seats right on the beach and every night 1 or 2 good movies .

Sounds boring, doesn't it? Well, I guess it is. But this is just what we want after all the impressions and experiences of the past month: enjoying all the good Ko Samet has to offer and thinking back of the great trip we have had! And what about next year? Well, if my bankaccount allows me, Indonesia. Not just the two of us but the whole bunch: Daan, me, my dear wife Saskia and my beloved twin daughters Romy and Charley. You'll read all about it in my travel blog. Till then!
