From Ko Pha Ngan to Bangkok
Elena

From Ko Pha Ngan to Bangkok

Last summer Ru came back to Stuttgart and stayed at my place. It was the second time for her and she liked it. She told me that she would open a hostel on Ko Pha Ngan so I said I visit her on the island when I get to Thailand. I never had the intention of going to Ko Pha Ngan in the first place. All you hear is the Full Moon Party, Half and Black Moon Parties.
The hostel is in Thong Sala – the town where the ferry arrives. So far I did only see that part of the island. So I was quite happy when Ru asked me if I can take Elena on her free day round the island. Guess lazy me would just hang out round the hostel all the time.
And I have to say – I was wrong about Ko Pha Ngan! There are so many beaches – quite, white sand and great watercolour. In the middle of the island it is mostly forest and green with some waterfalls. In Thong Sala is a food night market and that was good as well. So it is an island where one can go!

Ko Pha Ngan
There are a few waterfalls to visit – not really my cup of tea.

So we went up to the view-point. Quite hot and humid – that makes for a lot of sweat. But than you have a nice view.

On the way back down to the bike we stopped here. Nice view as well.

Time for the first beach. It started to rain like hell so we had to stop for some food and went to a bungalow place next to the beach. Friendly owner and restaurant stuff. After the rain stopped we walked the beach and the girl went to get some waves.

On this site of the island the roads go up and down. If you can ride a scooter take one for a day and explore the island!

That was a wide beach with super fine white sand – great!

No time no time!

Since i had to pick up Laura in Bangkok and meet a few friends before that it was time to leave after a few days. Got the bus – ferry – bus combo to the bus station in BKK. The bus leaves with the 17:30 ferry or something so you still can enjoy a day on the island.

When it gets dark it gets boring outside so I went inside. It was boring too!

On the Bus
Lucky me – a girl had the seat in the front and her boyfriend the seat next to me. So she wanted to change. Yes – more leg room – thank you!

Wires
Hello Bangkok – Wires in front of my guest house. They gave me a room at 6.30 in the morning and I could sleep a bit.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
