Koh Tao – The Eitan Way

Koh Tao is known to be the Scuba diving mecca of Thailand, that’s why I decided I was going to continue my PADI education there. I chose Ban’s Diving as it was a 5 star PADi school and owned by a Thai family; it is actually the biggest scuba school in the world. The Advanced…

Kob Khun Ka Thailand

Today we saw a different side of Bangkok that was amazing. We took a Thai food cooking class which is a must if ever in Thailand. It began at 9am where our fabulous tour guide/chef Nancy took us to a local market and showed us what to buy for what we will be cooking.  We…

Once Upon A Thai

If there is something I universally hate, that would be the taxi drivers; the Bangkok taxis take my hate to a whole different level. Here it’s pretty much impossible for a tourist to get a taxi driver to activate the meter and get a fair price. They just won’t do it, they just give you…

The Last Of The Kohs – Koh Samui

We took a ferry to Koh Samui, we messed up and booked it to the wrong pier and ended up on the other side of the island, not a big deal as it takes only 30 minutes to travel to the other side. Samui is the third and largest island of our Thai island tour….

The Backpacker’s Rite Of Passage

The next day we got a Thai with coconut oil massage to remove the stress of life. Big mistake, after we were covered in coconut oil, we immediately became Thailand’s whole mosquito population free buffet. Our massage consisted in rubs, stretches and probably around 459 slaps to kill a mosquitos, the bad experience didn’t end…

Koh This, Koh That, Koh Phangan

We took the ferry to Koh Phangan, home of the famous Full Moon Party. It takes about 1.5 hours to get there plus another hour in a truck to get to our hostel Shiralea. Sarah sat next to this nice guy from Texas, Mark, on the ferry and learned about his travel adventures and his…
