First impressions

It took us about 55 hours via plane, train, bus, taxi and ferry but we finally arrived at our first destination in Thailand, Koh Samui.

We’ve been on the island for about three days now and from the moment I stepped foot off the boat everything has been dripping with vivid color.

It’s like Disneyland for the senses.

Temples, food, people, the sea… everything is colorful.

The texture of the sand changes from one beach to the next, from rough brown sugar littered with chunks of broken shells to smooth tiny particles massaging your toes. The scent of freshly made Thai food wafts through the air at the Chaweng night market. And the tastes may be my favorite so far.

We’re living well on about $45 U.S. dollars a day (Go Thailand!) and have eaten four pad thais, two spring rolls, two fried rice dishes and bananas soaked in coconut milk, which I’ll be having again soon. Yum.

Most of our days are spent moseying around on foot gawking at delicious foods, scenic views and people watching.

Yesterday, we rented a moped so we could explore some of the beaches and markets across the island. Stay tuned for more on that.

For now, I’ll let the colorful island speak for itself. Here are a few of my favorites from our first few days. Enjoy.
