my trip to asia in dec 2006/ jan 2007
Leaving Switzerland just in the right moment!
SNOW!!! COLD! I am leaving!!!
This was on sunday morning (10.12.2006), taking pictures from our rear bath room with a view towards the Rigi.
With a lot of delays, but whit much luck catching every flight in time, finally I arived at Smaui after a 20 hour trip in this prop airplane.
Tired but happy to be at Samui, I checked in to my room at 11 pm.
Wow...what a nice suprise!
I found heaps of orchids in my room. Did they know, that orichids are my favorites flowers?
I don't think so ;-).....but it was nice welcome gesture!
The first 3 days:
Just relaxing at the beach, enjoy the sea, the hot sun and all other nice things here.
...taking everything easy....
...have real nice food at the beach, cooked and served next to my easychair...
After sunset, at the ARK bar...
..listening to cool house music and have refreshing drink's :-)).....
...watch the nice sunset...
...and some strange people at the table next to me ;-)
It's big fun, just watching the people. I can do that for hours. It's like watching a movie!
The whole week we had bright sunshine, the water was about 30 degree celcius....and the beach..
...a perfect place for a "early morning jogging" tour.
Yes! I have a jog every morning at around 7.30 am!!!
And after the jogging, searching for a bit of shade under a palm tree.
And then today!
Just gray sky...stromy winds....and it is not raining!
No! It's "pissing" dog's and cat's!
(sorry for the pissing. but that was the only word that fitted this kind of rain)
A day for shopping, reading a book...and updating the blog :-))
I almost forgot to show you the main street at chaweng:
uups...when taking the photo, I didn't see the police car...:-))
And here my favorite restaurant. I know, it don't look very special.
But the food is really good! Tasty thai food, the way I like it....hot and spicey!
And it is cheap ;-)
see you soon.......
Jinx in Thailand and Sri Lanka
Take off from Zürich on the 10.12.2006 9.20 pm to Dubai > Bangkok > Koh Samui
...and land at INTERNATIONAL Airport (Terminal 1) of Koh Samui on the 11.12.2006 at 9.50 pm.
One of the most comfortable international airports to travel to! Everything you need you can reach in walking distance (1 minute). The airport has no closed rooms or halls and the only one restaurant has very good food for a very little money.
Genau richtig, wenn me scho es paar stund unterwägs isch gsi...
At the Ko Samui International Airport
And that's real fun! With this small train (like in Disney World) they bring you from the runway to the airport building/ immigration desk...
..and Matt: you and the very big suitcase will also have a short trip on this "thing" :-)
MY bungalow in Koh Samui.....
I just love it!
My bungalow in a beautyfull garden...5 steps to the beach...WOW!
Fullmoon party: Christamas Eve on the Koh Phangan Island!
.....having fun, fun, fun.....
Koh Tao...a small island
Koh Tao...a must! With the boat about 60 min from Koh Samui...
The National Park "Mu Koh Ang Thong"
I will be on this island for 3 short days.
Just one word....luxury!!!!!!! Yeahhhhh!
And the breakfeast at the Oriental is just......
Sri Lanka....I am at home again!
I was living for 2 years in Mount Lavinia.
On weekends or holidays (every fullmoon) we where heading "down south" (a common saying in Sri Lanka) with the bike Then enjoying beachlife with our friends..swimming, surfing, relaxing and having fun at the Sri Lankan's well kown white beaches. If not in the seasons (monsoon time), we just headed up to the mountains for motocross training or races.
My second home....part 2
I am so happy to see my "second home" after a long long time.....
I was living at the street just behind this hotel. This picture shows you the terrasse of the well known restaurant "the terrasse". I was relaxing there almost every evening after work and just watching the sunset, enjoning the peace!
Everybody in Sri Lanka goes to the beach after work. Just meeting friends, talk to them, play soccer, relax a bit or do some "kichu machu" (flirte und schmuse).
My second home...part 3
You can see Colombo at the the top of the picture (about 15 km away from Mt. Lavina). I was working there in an office owend by my brother in law.
Going "down south" to Hikkaduwa...
This is the guesthouse I am staying over new year...enjoy the beach, the srilankan food and many other things.....
Beaches in Hikkaduwa

Get my self a fresh mixed fruit juce, a lot of fresh chilled water and relax after a heavy night in the shadow in a easychair on the beach and.....
