Got woken up at 7 by builders next to us who are working on an apartment of the owner next to his restaurant, not so good !!!! I hope that they've finished the heavy work by tomorrow.
After breakfast I rented a motorbike for 6 days and we went to Nature Beach. Great to be back!
Enjoyed the sea, beach and off course our banana shake. While we were eating Jaroslaw with his wife and daughter had found the beach, we talked a bit and said we would see him a little later. But when we finished lunch the weather had changed and it looked as if it would rain, we tried to find them to tell them that we were leaving as the road uphill with the Z turn is impossible to take when the road gets wet, it's like a ice-rink. But we didn't find them, shame !
We went to look around some little shops and in the end it didn't rain. So we went to the beach near our guesthouse with the dogs and had great fun, than came back, washed them and had dinner. Talked to my mother via skype, everything ok in cold Holland !

6th
We just came back from Cambodia after twee weeks traveling to different places. It was really wonderful to travel there, but also quite heavy since the roads are terrible. I have to say that in Cambodia everything is real. The nature is still untouched.

We are very happy to be back in Koh Chang. It is an island that touched our heart. Today we went to White Sand beach to meet the Polish family we met on the way back from Cambodia. They are very interesting people and we like them a lot. They have been everywhere and Jarek makes beautiful paintings. Their daughter is very sweet. We will see them in Lago Maggiore in July as they will be visiting friends and we will go the wedding of Laura and Michel in Lago di Como. I cannot wait.

After the beach I went to have a massage at Sima. At the Lonely Planet they say it is the best massage in Koh Chang. Asia will love it. Asia, Remco and the children will come to Thailand end of July for one month. They planned and booked already everything like always. Extremely organized people! Awesome!

7th until the 10th
We've decided to stay one day longer as it's better to travel on a Monday.
These last days have been extremely cool and relaxed, we revisited our most popular beaches by bike.
The weather has been partly clouded but that doesn't bother us, it's nice not to have 35 degrees and "just" 29 for a couple of days.
Meanwhile we've tried to book as many hotels in Myanmar as possible as everyone that we talk to who has been there tells us the same thing, there's not enough hotels to just go there and find one like here even if you travel light, you really have to book at forehand, so that's what we're doing but it's not easy to find something for a reasonable price which is not a complete horror following the reviews in Tripadviser....
We'll see, let's stay positive !

We've taken the dogs to the beach around 5 in the evening a few times, they've become our friends and in the morning when we slide open our big glass door they're there and want to come in for their morning cuddle, real sweet !
Today is our last day in Koh Chang, we're leaving at 8 in the morning tomorrow for Jomtien. We had lunch with Paolo, Julieta and Georgio at Nature Rocks and said goodbye to them when they left, we might see them in Bangkok just before they leave as they have their plane at the 28th and we on the 29th of March, that would be nice. if not Paolo said he'd reserve our parking space for the camper in July in Rimini :-)
We won't stay till late here as I've got to bring back the bike and get organized for tomorrow.

We got back and took the dogs to the beach for the last time and had a lot of fun with them !
Than we had to give them a good shower and wash them as they were really dirty.
When we were ready to go for dinner Nena told us that she prepared a Thai barbecue for us, really sweet of them, we still don't know why, maybe because we took out the dogs ???
In each case it was really good, lots of gamba's, meat, vegetables, noodles and soup, really great !!
