Hi Guys

After being to a few places in Thailand and a lot in Phuket I am finally getting to Koh Samiu for the first time and soooooo excited

I still have a bit of a wait as not going until Dec for NYE and for about 10 days but at least I can say that we are going THIS YEAR now haha

to be exact I have 345 days until we leave for Phuket and

354 days or 50 weeks to Samui

some..... OK.... a lot of you will have a much better and less of a countdown than me..... you lucky ducks, so come and join in the fun and share yours too :-)

for a bit of fun use this countdown clock for your exact time, good fun :-)

Weasel ..lucky you for being there during Songkran. Make sure keep your documents and electronic gadgets properly wraps in plastics when you're out and about or better to leave them in hotel safe. If you're looking or wanting to see more of traditions go to temple ( any). They will have ceremony both morning and afternoon.

Cheers

Hi all

Have not heard from Megan she must be on her way by now:-)

JAG..I have never been to Goa but I'm sure sure you will like Thailand. Just go with the flow and open mind. You will be in koh Samui a few weeks before Mossy & I arrives.

36 days now Mac:-)

Happy counting down.

Hi Guys

yes I expect that Megan is there by now, hope all went well for her :-)

just booked BKK air from Phuket to Samui, was going to get our driver to take us to either Surat Thaini or Dan Sak, it would be nice and scenic and a bit cheaper but decided that I want to get there quicker lol.....only around $80 (total) difference anyway and less travel so getting there bit by bit haha...

291 days now Pea whoo hoo.....294 for you..... :-))
