A Travellerspoint blog


We made it to the islands. We are in Krabi. There were no taxis when we got dropped off on the highway leading into town. We ended up walking 6K into the city. At one point in the walk we were charged by a bull and were in a couple of stand offs with miserably hot and unkempt dogs. The walk wasn't that much fun. :) Kristin was ill. She got super motion sick on the bus, she'd eaten something bad for breakfast, and I think she was still suffering from heat exhaustion for a 13 mile run the day before. She also forgot her sunglasses in her seat on the bus. When we got on the bus outside the airport we ended up without seats. Kristin got a seat about 40 minutes into the 2.5 hour trip. I got a seat as the third person (basically, I was just leaning up against the seat) about 1 hour in. I felt like I was in the Peace Corps again. Our hotel was only 3 dollars each. It was quite simple with just 2 beds and a fan. The bathroom is a shared one right across the hall. It's super clean so I think it's just PERFECT! We are off to an island call Hat Rai Lay today. We don't have a reservation anywhere so it should be interesting. I had an awesome run this morning along the river. I didn't have to deal with ANY traffic since there was a boardwalk along the banks. I would love to stay here for the rest of the trip but I think it's best to keep exploring.

Well, your adventure definately continues. A 6K walk - no thanks. Hope Kristin feels better soon. How did you manage to get charged by a bull? Hope the island exceeds expectations!
