Week One On Koh Phangan

After our mammoth two travel days to get here we awoke on day one on Koh Phangan to this view:

We stayed at Lime n Soda Beachfront Resort, which I booked through Agoda for two nights. Once we decided to spend the rest of the week there we extended our stay by five nights and they gave us a discounted price of 1360 Baht per night including breakfast (about $AUD47). Breakfast was a pretty good buffet spread with hot and cold foods and coffee.

The resort is walking distance from the pier at Thong Sala where the ferry stops. Although the beach out the front is not the nicest it was good to be able to walk into town easily from here. The staff were lovely and friendly and great with the kids (free ice-creams abounded) and there were games to play, ping pong tables, volleyball and of course, the pool. We had a very pleasant week here and didn’t do a whole lot besides swim, eat, rest and walk into town every now and then.

Yesterday we checked out of Lime n Soda and moved on to the wedding location. Nonna and Poppa have arrived, James and Cara have arrived (the wedding couple) and throughout this week more and more wedding guests will turn up as we slowly take over the resort. So far the kids are enjoying having extra adults around and Dave and I are looking forward to a meal or two without the kids. Yay for grandparents!

    Yay for grandparents indeed! Everyone likes it when the childcare is shared around a bit. (Well, there are probably people out there who are averse to certain children but too polite to say and *they* probably don’t, but mostly I get the impression it works out well.)
