From Penang to Ko Pha Ngan
Night Market in Surat Thani

From Penang to Ko Pha Ngan

Time time time – no more time! After a few days in Penang it was time to move on. Wanted to visit Ru on Ko Pha Ngan so I got a ticket to Surat Thani. There was a mini bus early in the morning. A Chinese couple and a local couple where the only others in the van. The Chinese could not cross to Thailand since they had the wrong stamps in the passport. Sorry you can only fly!

Mercedes W123 Taxi
The mini bus dropped me somewhere and then this dude showed. Great! A W123 from Stuttgart! He drove me to another travel office for the last leg to Surat Thani. That bus dropped me at another office and they sold me an expensive ticket for the night boat. But I could leave my bag at the office.

Umbrella Street
The night market – that is a really nice decoration!

Pad Thai
A red Pad Thai? Why not – and it was really good. Lots of green to add on top of it. 30 Bath!

Morning at the beach
Since I was super early on the island there was nobody at the hostel. Time for a trip to the beach than.

Old fishing boat
Not sure if that one will go out again but the colors are sweet.

Ru has a dog now: Pad Thai

Vagabond Hostel
Yes – you are right again – a hostel… That is what you get when you visit the boss woman of the hostel. A dorm bed!

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.
