They made a mistake and bround me both the bbq meal and a burger. I was hunger and just ate both.
Tam left this evening.
She is flying back to London.
Kind of seems weird to be on my own again.

back in Thailand

I don't know why, but when i crossed from Cambodia to Thailand, it felt like i was coming home.
I know it is my bike's home but it was a good secure feeling coming back to Thailand.

There is this long skinny stretch of Thailand that is basically just miles of beachline. I am guessing somewhere in the history of time, Thailand won some sort of battle and stole this beautiful shore line from cambodia.

Right know i am on the island of Ko Chung. I thought it would be a sleepy little island bu it is jammed packed with restaurants, bars and resorts.
I am camping
What the hell
I am out of money
But i can still afford a beer and a beautiful sunset

Doing the southern border crossing from Cambodia to Thailand, you are confronted with miles and miles of beaches. And since it was getting late, i was looking for somewhere to camp.
If i had the money, i would have liked to stay in one of the resorts like this one.....only 50 bucks a night

I found a little shine on the beach and i was going to camp there until i found these.......a bunch of wood carved dildos each about two feet long.
Too weird for me and not my thing

I found this abandoned beach house near by the dildo shrine.
It was cooking hot outside, even after the sunset. I was sweating like crazy and i was not sure if i could sleep.
And then about 8 pm, it started to pour rain. It cooled slightly. I was so glad i had a roof over my head. I slept under the covered porch because it was too hot inside. The porch kept me dry because it was coming down in buckets for about an hour

The next morning, i explored some of the other nearby beaches.
I hung out here for a while and ate papaya salad and pad thai from my hammock

Some of the beaches were built up with stands selling food and little huts to hang out in. And then there were others with little dirt trails heading down to your own personal private beach for the day.......or night

I found this little cove complete with an abandoned house hiding in the trees.
I couldn't stay here as i was planning to catch the ferry to Ko Chung Island later that day

Ko Chung is not a secluded island by any means.
But the roads are really cool here.
Crazy switch backs
And still getting used to driving on the "other side" of the road again

Right now i am at a bar listening to some live music and having a beer.
I am going to tune out advrider and tune in the music
Ciao

Glad you're finding a chilled out state of mind.

What about some Lalo decals? Easy way to raise funds, everyone loves them, have been very successful for other guys doing RTWs. CafePress and other sites do them for free and take a small percentage of the profits. Just a thought. I'll take five please.
