First of all, Hello from Koh Samui!
Secondly I need to mention cake! So much cake!
Whilst on the flight from Manchester to Singapore, we were presented with a honeymoon cake! (Thanks Singapore Airlines) Sponge cake covered in icing and strawberries, the type you’d expect from a children’s birthday party that is then cut up into squares and shared amongst the party bags. We drank champagne and ate a slice. That’s all we could manage, we had to leave the rest and it’s a good job too! When we arrived at Peace Resort hotel, more celebratory cake!
From disembarking the plane to getting into the taxi took a total of 15 minutes
Arriving in Koh Samui, the first thing we noticed was how sufficient the people and the airport was. Possibly the tiniest, definitely the quickest airport and entrance to a county we have ever experienced. From disembarking the plane to getting into the taxi took a total of 15 minutes. We did benefit from having a priority tag on our luggage (our luggage was upgraded to business class, sadly, we weren’t) this meant that it was there waiting for us after immigration. Straight to book a taxi, 5 minute wait and we hopped right in and on we go.
Note – might be obvious but still worth saying, get the shared taxi service from the airport, it’s half the price of a private one and cheaper than arranging the transfer from your hotel.
I found the tangled mess quite fascinating
Sleepily gazing out the taxi window, I see above the road the maze of electric wires. I found the tangled mess quite fascinating. Each wire linking and intertwining with the next, like a maze/labyrinth puzzle. The wires were like the reflection of the people, the paths people take all working together in a messy harmony.
We’ve only been here a couple of days now so there is so much more to come! I’m off now to eat a banana pancake, not that I need anymore sweet food!
