...unless your friend is James Bond.
Then I'm sure you wouldn't want him to shut up.
But fortunately for your eyes, watch and designated amount of reading patience, I have merged days 2-8 all together and wrapped it in a little bow for this post.
Although every day was unique, they were (for the most part) pretty much the same. We got into a sort of groove after the first 3 days and we just went with the flow.
Each day usually went a lil' somthin' like this...
9:30AM - Wake up and gorge on the included buffet breakfast at the hotel.
10:30AM - Either (A) fall back asleep until 12PM/1PM or (B) tie on our bikinis and head to the beach.
Where the drinking would commence almost immediately.
Chilling on beanbags under the Thai sun in front of your own stretch of sand with the best mojito in one hand and the best strawberry daiquiri in the other really was like living a tropical dream.
|Sober. Our bar, our haven, our home away from home away from home.|
Like these three Italian mobsters for instance...
...and our Kohsa pet Jimbo...
....and many a friendly salesmen
with many a friendly goods to sell!
But when 3PM/4PM rolled around, our stomachs were yearning for food.
Our usual go-to meal was pad thai (when in Rome, do like the Romans) or other Thai dishes at local 40 baht restaurants.
Or we'd spoil ourselves with some Western food.
And after going to the hotel room and crashing after happy hour from 7PM-11:30PM, we'd get up, get ready, and go out on the town.
To say that the meat of this trip was way more juicy than I could have ever imagined would be the understatement of the year. There were surprises around every corner and everything expected was happily shown up. I have never experienced something so unique and it's hard to imagine there's any place else quite like Koh Samui.
Apart from coming out of it with a tan, thousands more freckles sun bleached hair and unforgettable memories, we walk away with friendships that will last a lifetime.
