Island living in Thailand

sunny 30 °C

Both time and I lie  suspended in a hammock strung on the verandah of our poolside bungalow. We are currently on Koh Phi Phi having just left Koh Lanta, both Thai islands surrounded by the warm waters of the Andaman Sea. 

The water temperature is about 29 degrees centigrade, crystal clear and is inhabited by a huge variety of colourful marine life including the tiny anemone clown fish (of "Finding Nemo" fame)', sea turtles, and different species of sharks. 

So with nothing better to do with our time,Manas, Solstice and I are proud to announce we have completed our SCUBA open water divers course.  The list of fish types Manas has memorized is most impressive, Solstice is a natural, and I just like rolling over on my back from 30 feet beneath the waves and watching my air bubbles trickle to the surface.  

Meera and the kids have completed some Thai cookery courses.  Aleix has perfected his pad Thai and everyone is looking forward to preparing theses flavourful, fresh dishes next year.  A scrumptious Thai noodle salad will taste pretty good at -30.....

We continue to hang out with our friends the Prawdzik's and the whole lot of us do the typical tropical paradise stuff like diving & snorkeling, collecting shells at the beach, chilling by the pool, and drinking shakes that come in flavors like pineapple and cocunut.

But our island life is about to end as in a couple days we are off to Cambodia via Bangkok.  Enjoy the photos of our island life. That's all for now, folks!
