Avoiding the crowd and the noise (09.02.09)


I am a morning person. I always been like that, and I like it this way. Sleep important for me, and If I don't get enough I feel tired, cranky, miserable. Ko Phi Phi is a gorgeous island, but also very crowded and noisy. It's too bad I only stayed a couple of days, but now it's time to go. I need something quiet. So I took a boat for an hour and half ride to Ko Lanta. This is more family orientated, quiet, and not crowded at all. Once that I arrived, I saw the difference. It looks like a county side village. I think I'm gonna like it here. It's a good place to recover. Catch up with the sleep. Heal the sunburns. Recover financially. The idea is to relax, although is a strange concept to me. How do people relax? Is it by doing nothing? 'cause I don't think I can do that. I was never able to completely shot down my brain. Sometimes, although rarely, the thoughts are running through my head so fast I barely sleep at night. I have found cheap accommodation in a bungalow by the beach. I wasn't very happy about it (because bathroom has no sink), but I took it for a day. Later on I went looking for others. It's a lot easier without baggage, and this island is big. I have found one a little more expensive but more likable, so I booked it for next day. On my way back I stopped at a restaurant on the side road and I had a lunch/dinner (Very tasty and cheap fried noodles with . When I got back I have somehow lost the key. I got another one at reception.In the evening I walked on the beach, watch the sunset, stay more on the beach, then got a bear and lay into hammock at my bungalow. Not so bad, I could say!

I haven't seen girls you are asking. They are are at Pattaya, haven't been there, and I don't think I'll make it. When I'll get to Phuket I'll let you know how are there.
