Big ‘Ol Buses from Ko Phi Phi to Bangkok

Day 27 – Round the World 2008 So, time to leave the allegedly tranquil but mostly trolleyed Phi Phi. I have to admit I’m not too sorry. The place looks amazing outside of the hedonistic and decidedly manky drinking centre and the weather’s far from rubbish but there’s only so much beach I can take, and I think I’ve taken it. Cat also seems to be following my line of thought,... read more

Thai boxing ten year olds in Kho Phi Phi, Thailand

Day 25-26 – Round the World 2008 The next couple of days on Phi Phi were a pretty lazy affair, highlights being swimming around the cool little bays, eating far more food than any human needs to survive, drinking enough alchoholic liquid to threaten aforementioned survival and scoffing a few more clandestine pancakes.

The ferry was amazing compared to our previous water-borne exploits – the water was flat calm and we... read more

Ko Tao to Krabi and the Pillars in the South

Day 22 – Round the World 2008 We awoke this morning with a sense of trepidation – we were back on the ferry in a matter of hours and our last trip hadn’t exactly sent us to the booking office clamouring for more tickets. We got a taxi back over to the pier this time, not really fancying an hour walk in the sun with the dreaded ferry on our minds. The taxi-cum-pickup-truck dropped us off... read more
