    Samui & Koh Phangan pics

    I arrived back from my trip a couple of days ago. Had a really great trip this time again. I'm starting this as a picture trip report. I took lots of pictures, these a some of the first ones I've resized and cropped. I'll add more also.

    First one is where Nels goes regularly for food up in Mae Nam (the pork and duck place), I just stepped off the chair I was sitting on and went 4 meters to take the pic.

    These are all from Koh Phangan. I just went out for a night with Dean and another couple of guys that came from Phuket for diving. Dean and myself hired a scoots and drove all over the island. A very nice island and quiet roads.

    The last pic is of a Buddhist fertility shrine (basically a Cock shrine) that was spotted by Deano at the side of the road.

    First pic is where we were staying, Haad Salad resort, north west corner of island. I got a beach bungalow for 2000, they had rooms also for 1k

    Next few are all Had Rin where the full moon parties are.

    KPG looks to have stayed nicer than Tao did..

    Those 'cock effigy' jobbers are IIRC linghams.. Every once in a while you see a half mad fella wandering round with a bunch on a string around his neck..

    ===========================

    The odd first pic was taken at a Wat. It's meant to be a husband and dead wife, sculpture (maybe) made by the husband, so a Thai told me when I was showing it to them. Dunno for sure though.

    Looks like you enjoyed your trip. I'm glad we caught up in BKK, it started my holiday off with a blast. You weren't kidding about some serious relaxation for the rest of yours though 555

    Hopefully you still got plenty of action on the road.

    Yeah great trip after Bangers, I had intended to head back up to Patts for a week but things were going so well in Samui I just stayed there. Oh yeah buddy I got plenty of action after, top drawer stuff. Keep in touch, I'll be doing something similar early in 2014.

    -Yes, looks very nice. I had a week in Chaweng & Lamai, in Late Jan 2013, but the weather was a bit breezy & the sea rough & beaches dirty. I liked Ko Phangan a lot, stayed at Had Rin & Had Yao (next bay to Hat Salad), & also liked Ko Tao as well.

    One taken of Dean, Deans mate and Nels on the mountain road in middle off Samui. It was great to see Deano again. Nels again was a great host too, had a great time with him scooting (Nels sitting on the scooter I had, one of the new 125i clicks) about most days, we went swimming everyday, usually somewhere different and more than a few big nights on the toon. Cheers again Nels! If I was ever to retire or spend a long time in Thailand, Saumi would be very high on my list of places to go...

    Would love to have a beer with Nels. Yeah I might give Samui a bash early next year.
