Today we started the day at 7 am! Oh, yea. Island hopping to 4 islands. Honey, one English breakfast with orange juice before we go, please! Here we are now in the pickup truck heading to the meeting point where our boat awaits.
The first stop was Phi Phi Island, we all know this is where The Beach was shot, but let me tell you now and you deserve to know. The most beautiful paradise, with crystal clear water and the white sandy beach, has turned into an overpopulated tourist attraction. There is nothing to do here other than people watching. I remembered I came here more than 11 years ago (how old am I again?) and it was nice and peaceful. What happened to this paradise? I guess us being here...we are part of the problem.
Some cool shots taken from hubby's phone.
We didn't take many photos after the first island. The rest of the other islands we visited were not as crowded, but still beautiful nonetheless. We swam, snorkeled and stopped over for a good lunch. That pretty much takes up most of our energy. But with this crazy clan, it was all fun and laughter.
Like a clockwork, we are back to our hotel at 5 pm. The day is still so early, so we decide to freshen up and play a little dressed up with our cool braids and golden freckles, and we are ready to paint the town red. Just FYI, my version of paint the town red is to stuff our face and play cards. Preferably with a banana pancake with lots of Nutella. That pretty much sums up our day!
BY THE WAY, WHY DOES NOY ALWAYS LOOK SO PRETTY!!?
