    Ko Tao, a Paradise Lost

    Ko Tao is a tiny island to the north from Ko Samui, and the only way to get there is by boat. Since the journey is only two hours long, our initial plan was to visit Ko Tao as part of a day trip. But when we checked the timetable and realised that the ferry leaves Ko Samui at 8AM and returnes at 3PM, spending the night at Ko Tao seemed to make more sense, so we booked a last-minute accommodation. Ko Tao Ko Samuitól északra fekszik és csak hajóval közelíthető meg. Az út kb. két óra, úgyhogy eredetileg csak egy napra szerettünk volna átugrani erre a szigetre. Aztán mikor megnéztük…

    Spring Special: Bluebell Carpets in Kew Gardens

    Yes, it is spring, and it is warm, and it is sunny. And it is bluebell season. 🙂 Last week I spent quite a while googling the best spot in or very close to London, where we can see the famous bluebell carpets. After browsing through lots of those ‘Top eight…”, “Top ten…”, “… plus one” lists that all suggested locations far away from London, I bumped into the obvious: Kew Gardens! I’ve never been to Kew Gardens anyway, so this was the perfect time to make up this deficiency. Biza, tavasz van, és meleg, és napsütés. Ja meg harangvirág-szezon. 🙂 A múlt hét folyamán meglehetősen sok időt töltöttem Londonban vagy Londonhoz…

    The Rainforests and Sandy Beaches of Ko Samui

    After exploring Bangkok and visiting the elephants there was one more thing left on our to do list: find an island, and relax for a few days. Thailand is an awesome place to visit from beach point of view as well. You can travel to this country whenever you want to, and you will always find a seaside or an island where the weather is ideal. In September for example, theoretically the east coast should be the one to choose, so based on this information we decided to discover Ko Samui and the surrounding islands. Miután bejártunk Bangkokot, és meglátogattuk az elefántokat, nem maradt más hátra mint eljutni valami szigetre lazulni…
