My small lil' island

After a couple of days in Bangkok which was fun I am taking the night bus to my first asian island. Stopping in the middle of the night at a restaurant and transfering busses was a bit confusing to say the least. After some good food and about an hour wait we're back on the road. Arriving around 6 am by the boat dock there's another hour wait before we can take of.With the sun in the back and the wind blowing softly I can see the island from a distance, coming closer I can see the huts build on the rocks over the ocean and covered with palm trees. This is getting excited. Walking onto the island we are getting approached locals when are extremely welcoming without trying to sell to much.
That's why this place is so great. The peace and quite is unmatched, yet the few bars and restaurants have enought food and entertainment to fill up the hours you need to socialize. This is how travel should be and by getting to know my hostess at the place i'm staying at i'll get to eat food that my eyes need some adjusting on. This place is great and only a boat trip away from my next stop Ko Tao. So glad I stopped here first. My first lil' island was a success :)
