This was the entrance to our home in Koh Samui!
We were in Thailand for a week. One, glorious week. We've now been back in China for a week. And it's taken me a week to finish this post! Sorry!
It was a WONDERFUL week. The whole trip was amazing. If you ever have the time to take, you should go there. It is beautiful and inexpensive.
It looks like the island of LOST, which is actually Hawaii.
But unlike Hawaii, you can actually enjoy yourself, because it is so cheap!
Delicious food and drinks...we never broke $20. And nothing was spared. We had lobster, tons of shrimp, Thai food galore and drinks: smoothies, milkshakes, beer, cocktails.
My favorite were their banana pancakes. It was just like a Nutella-Banana Crepe in Paris...only after they folded it up, they would brown it on both sides (like a quesadilla) then sprinkle it with coconut and sweetened condensed milk. That cost 50 US Cents!
You can even spend 3 hours in the nicest spa on the island for only $80. And that is SPLURGING, seriously. You can get an hour massage at a normal place for $6. Since we live in China and that is normal here, I went all out. (Our last Asia, hoorah!)
This is where we spent most of our time.
But our little beach-front bungalow also had it's own pool! Which was ideal for nap time. When Carter napped, we could still enjoyed the water and sun. (With SPF, of course!)
One of Carter's favorite part of the trip was seeing the elephants!
We also saw a tiger. It was scary.
Our last day there, Carter had a little accident. He fell off of the bed and hit the night stand. It still makes me sick to think about it. It started to swell open and made me very nervous. So we took him to the hospital...which also made me very nervous. BUT, I was pleasantly surprised.
We went to the International Hospital, where they speak English. It took max 30 minutes. And the whole thing cost $30. The hospital was set up like a resort with a pool in the middle for the patients. Nice!
There is almost too much too blog about our trip BUT there are more pictures on Facebook if you are dying to see more! Ha ha!
In other news:
We're moving to Calgary, Canada by Mid-June!!!! We can't be more excited to be so close to home and still experiencing a whole new place!! Woo Hoo!
So recently, we are going crazy during nap times, looking for places to live and for as much information as we can!
