Heavenly Bliss on Mai-Khao

overcast 27 °C

Hello Friends & Family

Well, what can I say....we are in heavenly bliss. We are staying in a non-touristy, away from it all, low key blissful place called Seaside Cottages on Mai-Khao. This place is peaceful, soulful and inspiring. We are staying in a bamboo beach hut with just enough space for a double mattress which is one of just 5 on a small plot of land right on the Mai-Khao beach. Birdsong and the crashing of waves fill our ears morning and night. Run by a British guy who prefers the Thai way of living, everything is rustic, traditionally Thai and completely down to earth. We're in heaven. We can see the beach from our hut. The shared bathrooms are immaculate and the food is some of the most authentic Thai food I've had - cooked by his Thai Wife. We even get to use the luxury pool and wifi of the hotel next door which is pretty much empty due to the economy, yet our place is booked up until after Christmas, so we're getting the best of both worlds - not bad for two sun junkies back-packing eh??

Today has been overcast but most of the time it's incredibly hot and sunny here.

We will be going on a sea-fishing trip while we're here - both really looking forward to that and we'll have some cooking lessons too. We've also got a little fitness regime going (don't laugh girls, but Ross counts me down on my skipping - he's whipping me into shape!)

Keep the messages coming - lovely one from you Phil...glad you're all enjoying the blog. We'll send an update in a week or so once we're in Krabi.

Let us know all your plans for Christmas, ours our pretty much sorted - beach, BBQ's and campfires are promised before we begin our tour through Thailand via the Mekong.

Love you lots and missing you all (including RW guys - thinking of you all - hope the Christmas party was a good one)

Bit of a change from India eh? The description of your resort sounds wonderful and the cooking lessons sound fun. We look forward to sampling something of what you have learnt when you return.
Although we'll miss you both on Christmas day, we're sure you'll try and make the best of things on the beach, with a nice bbq and something suitably alcoholic!
More photographs please. The ones taken on the beach were great and it's a relief to see Ross has ditched his thong!!
Love to you both, keep enjoying and stay safe,
Mum and Dad B xx
