After a couple more pleasant days in Surfers Paradise, we are getting ready to go to Thailand.

We decided on Koh Samui.

For Phuket and Chang, it is the wrong time of the year. I have been there before and liked the city of Lamai but we chose to stay in Chaweng, the main beach city, since I thought it would suit Dr T better.

After days of surfing and booking (I thought) on this on line agency:

I still had no final confirmation. I had to get back to them and they told me, no availability. 48 hours after my booking request and less than 24 hours before our departure. Their alternatives s.cked.

Luckily Hubby is a better surfer and this is the company we booked with, in the end:

We used them before and we highly recommend it: professional and fast. Two Euro booking fee and great deals.

So, where are we going?

Looks cheap and cheerful and promises FREE wireless in the ROOM. We only booked for 3 nights. If it is near what they promise, we will stay.

So, what did we do but surfing for our destination in Thailand and a hotel? (And letting everybody know: we are coooooooming)

We strolled through Surfers Paradise, went to Hooters and Movie World. Since we are 2 children together, we had a very nice time. Still, I think the park was overpriced: 69$/person. And, of course, everything inside is very expensive. Wanna go there: take your picnic and drinks: it is allowed and will save you lots.

Time for lunch now. Our plane is leaving at midnight and goes via Bangkok to Samui, where we arrive the 6th of August at 9h. It is going to be a long day... .

Hope to talk to you soon!
