too beautiful to be inside an internet cafe

Koh Chang Travel Blog

So I'm terrible I know it.  I haven't updated this blog in forever.  So much has happened as well.  Please forgive me but I won't be rambling on about my adventures in this blog either.  I've got to get out of this sweaty cafe and into a taxi to take me to a waterfall.  I'm on the island of Koh Chang, 2nd largest island in Thailand after Phuket.  It's a 5 hour drive south of Bangkok and the archipelago is made up of 51 other smaller islands.  It's only been given some tourist attention the last 4 years so it has managed to maintain it's beauty.  This is also the low season due to predicted weather patterns, however we've lucked out and it's been sunny and blue skies the whole time we've been here.

  We took a boat trip around a couple of the smaller islands and went snorkeling yesterday.  Saw some gorgeous fish and coral, eels, etc...  Got quite burnt, despite constantly reapplying SPF 30.  The day before that we slept on rafts in the ocean.  Before that we rented motorbikes and tooled around the island.  There's been a few mishaps in our adventures, missing buses, losing ferry tickets, tides washing the bungalow key away at 2 in the morning so you're "forced" to sleep on the beach all night.  The group I'm with is mad chill and we've all been able to laugh it all off, which is great seeing as alot of it has been my fault, whoops.  It's absolutely heaven on this island and it's probably one of my favorite places in the world. 

Off to Bangkok again tomorrow :(  I like the city, but not ready to leave here.  Then it's Vietnam day after next.
