Finally, a recap on the last leg of our trip spent in paradise, aka the Andaman Sea…
My happy place.
After our week stint in Chiang Mai (more on that here) we flew down to Krabi. Bright blue water, beaches for miles, and sunshine greeted us. We spent three days on the island of Koh Lanta being as lazy as humanly possible. Walking along the beach, floating in ocean, and turning only for tan lines sake. Having more than enough day trips and activities under our belts, we fully sunk into vacation mode.
Longtail boats. I think I have at least 100 photos of these damn boats, so pretty. Fun fact: the colored flags tied on the front are believed to keep the boats afloat, a colorful superstition I was 100% on board with.
The sand varied from beach to beach – water shoes would have been a brilliant investment for the rockier shores. But the water was crystal clear. I wore flip-flops and sliced my foot open on our second day (not to worry mom, the cut was kept clean by constant salt water exposure).
Beach necessities. For around 50 cents, I overindulged in daily fresh coconuts.
We spent our last 4 days back on the beach in Krabi. Taking day trips by longtail to the Phi Phi and Hong Islands. We booked private boat tours and every time a beach became too “crowded”, i.e. another boat pulled up, we asked to be taken to a new location. It was heaven, worth the splurge. The gorgeous limestone cliffs just drop into the sea and are unlike anything I have ever seen.
Selfies in our new printed pants. We were more on trend than we thought (our $5.00 version vs. Anthro’s version).
Goodnight Krabi. We miss you already.
