I’ve been going off my rocker getting all my preparations done for this trip, which explains why I haven’t been able to update this page in the past few weeks (that, and my final examinations ever in college, of course). Here’s a brief overview of what has gone down since:

1) Inter-regional flights in Philippines turned out to be too costly for us poor folk (that would be me, actually). Plan changed to a 3 weeks tourney through the Land of Smiles.

2) Touchdown in Bangkok > Sleeper train down to Krabi, Ao Nang (transit through Surat Thani) > Final stop: Ko Samui / Ko Tao

3) Here’s my packing list. I don’t believe I have ever traveled this light before!

– 3 sets of clothes (3 tees, 3 shorts)

– 7 underwear (why skimp on the essentials, right?)

– A pair of running shoes

– A pair of sandals

– Toiletries: Toothbrush, toothpaste, contact lens solution

– 100ml tube of sunblock

– 100ml tube of mosquito repellent

– 100ml tube of Febreeze

– A few packets of dry and wet tissue

– Electric shaver

– Medication box: Charcoal pills, Panadol, Po Chai Yin, Plasters, Clarityn

– Daypack

– Swimming shorts and goggles

– Universal adapter and chargers

– Netbook (Acer Aspire One)

– Camera (Panasonic Lx3)

– Waistbelt

– Several ziplock bags

– Essentials pouch: Passport and wallet

 

More on the trip as I go along. Stay tuned!

    I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this informative article together.
    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and
    commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
