Living the 'High Life'

It’s hard to believe that we have been down in the Gulf of Thailand now for a week and a half with only one week left to go! Our time here so far has been awesome - trying so many different kinds of Thai cuisine, scootering around the island and trying our best to look like the beach bunnies that we are bobbing around in the ocean surf.

We are now residing at a resort called “High Life”. Our bungalow is perched atop a huge rock on the southern edge of Haad Yao (right) on Koh Phangan’s west coast. We really love the luxury of our wrap-around porch with comfortable lounge chairs, a hammock and of course a Jacuzzi in the far left corner to watch a beautiful sunset.




Activity on the island seems to be a little busier, as more backpackers and travelers are coming ashore in preparation for tomorrow night’s full moon party at Haad Rin Beach. As we drove into town yesterday there were many more motorbikes and tourists out on the street – a little different from the feeling we had a week ago being the only ones on the island.

The food continues to be really, really good. Our favourites continue to be the Pad Thai, Mas Samman (a Thai curry with rice), spicy Thai salad, and Thai spring rolls. We are looking into taking a cooking class in town so that we can prepare these excellent dishes back home.



With our time on Koh Phangan coming to an end, our focus continues to be on enjoying those last few sunsets, sits by the beach and wonderful meals so you can understand why we don’t feel the need to add anything else to today’s blog – take care.
