Addio Koh Samui
Addio, farewell, best wishes to Koh Samui. Tonight is our last night and I'm really having trouble parting with the island. There were nights filled with drinking on the beach, days of laying in the sun, moments of heat exhaustion, loads of shopping, making friends, and simply put an amazing part of our vacation or as they call it in Thailand "holiday". We celebrated Valentines here, and Chinese New Year, as well as set off Khoom Fays, watched fireworks nightly, strolled beaches endlessly, learned life lessons about Thailand, visited Wats, held a monkey and figured out how to mix right in with the Thai lifestyle. Our next stop is Khao Sok...from the looks of it there will be less internet access there, so it may be a few days because we post more pictures...but stay tune! Oh yeah, and did I mention our really great tans?
Also...this meal cost us $4...that's $2 a person and it was still too much to eat.

I graduated from the University of Alabama with a bachelors degree in Human Environmental Sciences, in the field of Restaurant and Hotel Management, specializing in restaurants and tourism. Part time adventurer, I hope to someday open a bed and breakfast/restaurant.
"A foreign critic once described America as a country which had one sauce and twenty different religions. Evidently he did not reach New Orleans in his travels, or else he would have discovered that its gravies are even more varied than its theology, and that good cooking is one of its religions."
