As we planned our much anticipated return to Thailand we thought we would treat ourselves to an upgrade in our train travel. We have done a couple of night trains in second class, so for this trip in Thailand we blew the budget and got a first class cabin.
We had taken the trouble to get a two month visa in advance for Thailand when we were in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It takes away a lot of stress knowing you are already pre approved when entering Thailand and we won’t have to apply for an extension while we are here. This first house sit was giving us the opportunity to explore this beautiful island at a nice easy pace and enjoy the companionship of two great dogs and three entertaining cats. I shouldn’t forget the the four turtles and numerous fish. This is truly a little slice of paradise.
We have taken some time to check out some of the local temples and tourist attractions.
Karen and I find we quickly get “templed out” when touring multiple sites in a day so we enjoy watching out for some of the more unusual sights.
But of course our main purpose on being on the island is looking after the house and pets of the home we are in. This home has a beautiful garden and pond which is providing a great opportunity for me to work on my wildlife shots.
We are loving our time here on Koh Samui. The people are helpful and friendly. There is plenty to do if the spirit moves you, as well as ample opportunity to just relax and take in the beauty.
