We made it to Bangkok and Paul booked the cutest place.
Please say a little prayer as the southern islands of Thailand are going to be hit by a tropical storm. We have 4 more nights before we head south and we hope we can still continue our journey to my favorite little island- #kohbulon#staysafe#thailand#prayforthailand#honeymoon
Islandlife on Koh Bulon. We went to the island to celebrate Marielle’s birthday and ended up staying for a week. In contrast to the more popular islands of Thailand, Koh Bulon is relatively quiet and untouched. More than half of the island is jungle. Sea gypsies make a living by fishing. There is no harbour and goods and tourist are transferred from speedboat to the Island by a longtailboat. There are no cars. We camped in a pine forest right on the edge of the beach. 20 or 40 meters away from the sea, depending on high or low tide. In the night we would swim in the sea with lights all around us. Above the stars. Around and underneath us lightning algae in the water. When packing we discovered that we had to pay a price for the beautiful campspot. Our footprint and inner tent were eaten by ants. Right now we are taping and glueing some 40 holes. But we’re not sorry; the memory of the most beautiful island we ever experienced is more important.
You don’t need to celebrate Christmas to find paradise. It’s not up there; it’s everywhere around you. In Koh Bulon Lae the water is clear and warm. You’ll find fish and corals in every colour imaginable. And on the land the monitor lizard is king.
