Where I stayed
Sigh Tong Beach

Flag of Thailand  ,
Monday, September 21, 2009

Have you ever been sitting in an office or hospital in a dull and uninteresting mood and then you see a magazine with a drop dead gorgeous picture of a tropical island with palm trees, white sands, and crystal blue waters? I have seen many of those travel magazines that look so good you think, "well it has to be computerized and that cant be true." I am here to tell you It is as true as I am living. There are accually places that look even better than those magazine covers. 

 Sigh Tong Beach was recomended by my two german friends because they had stayed a whole week there and fell in love with it. When I saw their pictures I knew I had to see it too. So on my way back to Bangkok from Koh Samui I stopped over for 6 hours on the little island of Koh Tao (Turtle Island). The island is called turtle island because It is shaped like a turtle not because there are turtles there. From Talking to many people about the beauty of this island, I found out that it used to be a prison for all the naughty Thais to go. So the beaches stayed clean, because who would want to vacation with the men in stripes? Then the prison closed, leaving a tropical island decades behind on it's decay and polution. It is a bit out of the way but I give it a 50 thumbs up. 
 
Imagine you were telling everyone about chocolate because no one had ever tasted it. How could you describe it's taste? or how it feels when it melts in your hand and you quickly gobble it down in the desparate attempt of not waisting a single drop? Now imagine everyone said, "oh well it cost too much money." "I am too old or too young. Too rich or too poor." since when has chocolate ever yeilded to poverty, or wealth. I know that back when the Spanish monks first introduced it, only the royalty could aford it, but come on that was back in the 16th century. Nowadays World traveling, just like chocolate, is for all ages, and social economic static. No longer are the rich the only ones spending summers in Europe and taking trips half way around the world. Europe is so the exotic place of the past. Come to Thailand and experience pure serenity and bliss. Imagine your self in these pictures. These exotic far off places really exsist and I am a living proof that anyone can come here. How about this just say, "no more excusses, I will go". Sacrifice what you have to, because trust me It was worth a life time of suffering and pain, just to be on that beach for 5 hours. Just pick a date and come.

  See you when you get here.

Hola, Bronsen
Me encantan estas últimas fotos. Yo sé lo que quieres decir con que 'It was 100 times better than this' ¡desde que visité Tahití! Tailandia y sus islas se parecen mucho a la islas polinesias. Qué estupendo que puedas gozar toda esta belleza en tu juventud. Qué Dios te bendiga y que sigas disfrutando de las bellezas exquisitas de Tailandia con buena salud.
