(To all my friends) Wish you were here (07.02.09)

I arrived in Krabi at 9:30. I felt a little bit tired. I haven't slept 7 hours since I arrived in Istanbul. The boat left for Ko Phi Phi at 10am and it took 22 hours. I am the Save-the-best-for-the-last kind of a guy. Not this time! This is supposed to be the highlight of Thailand trip. As the boat was approaching the pier I knew I wasn't wrong. The view was so promising. I checked the prices of accommodations listed in few touristic boots, and it was a lot higher than I expected. I didn't panic and follow the common sense rule: the farther from the beach, the cheaper. In about 10 minutes I have found one good enough and at a decent price for this island. Ko Phi Phi wouldn't probably be so expensive if some dude wouldn't make a movie about a secret spectacular beach some years ago. In fact, this beach is not even here, but about 2 km south. Regardless, this island is amazing beautiful! It looks like two islands connects by a narrow strip of land, with beaches on both sides. After I got my room, showered, had lunch, I went exploring the island. A 30 minutes step climb got me to the highest viewpoint, standing at 186 meter of sea level. I just can't find the right word to describe the view. Fantastic, magnificent, awesome, there are not enough!This probably should go into dictionary under tropical paradise. I just sat there for a while and contemplate. I went down and then walk along the beach till next one - the long beach. I just couldn't wait anymore and I got in the water. It was so clear and warm, must had been around 30 degrees Celsius! I enjoyed my time till close to sunset, then I had early dinner, returned, changed, and went to a beach bar. I had a beer right on the beach, watch a fire show, listen to the music, without a care in the world. This is LIVING!
