Ao Nang Travel Stories
Raw squid, climbing and throwing up
Jemma here :-) Just squashed a mozzie gliding around my legs and I got blood on my hands, ew... And another squashed mozzie, more blood on hands... We are back in J.Mansion hotel in Ao Nang. Quite a bit seems to have happened since we left 4/5 days ago. We hopped on a longtail on the beach, 1 minute from the hotel and sailed round to Tonsai. The crossing was still 100 baht each, good value for the 10 minute trip around to the bay. We checke...

Robbed twice...
We were a bit anxious about the 14 hour night bus that we were booked onto for last night. We went to the Paragon shopping center in a taxi (100 baht) and had some amazing sushi (250 baht) and we watched James Bond. If you haven't seen it yet, I thought it was the best one yet... but I haven't seen all the old ones. We got a tuk tuk back at 5pm and grabbed some more pork noodle soup, got 200 quid out the ATM and picked up our washing for the lady...

The sun is back in full force...!
Taz and I have spent the last few nights relaxing on Tonsai Bay. It's funny that we're nearly at the end of our trip and we ended up in exactly the same bungalow that we stayed in last time we were here.

I think all the entertaining we've done over the l...

Southern Thailand
Well the of us are in Southern Thailand again. I feel very at home here in Krabi - Taz and I are already buzzing about being back in the climbing capital and we're making plans for our next visit, hopefully next year. It'd be great to bring all our climbing friends over for a couple of weeks, and Harry :-) We left Ko Phangan yesterday morning on a ferry at 11am which took 2 and a half hours. before we left Taz got a tattoo and then Sarah got o...

Time flies when you're having fun!
Where has this week gone?? We've both done lots of climbing. We're completely burnt out! We're staying in Ao Nang tonight for a McDonalds tea (everyone needs a break from rice every once in a while) before we go to Burma in the morning to get a new Thai visa. Apparently you need a brand new 10 US dollar bill to get into Burma. If it's wrinkled or mucky they won't accept it... so we're hoping we can find a bank that'll exchange because we don't ha...
