Getting There

We took the sleeper train #85 from Bangkok to Chumphon (10 hours) were we caught a bus transfer to the pier (30 minutes) on the Gulf of Thailand.  We then caught the Lomprayah ferry, a large Catamaran, to Koh Tao.

On the ferry to Koh Tao we encountered a “seasoned” traveller who very quickly got the nick name “Jack Sparrow”.   Swaying from side to side as the boat rolled over the waves he kept looking to sky; I imagine he found peace there.

Mid way through the trip Jack had to use the bathroom at which point he started stumbling towards the stairs down to the second level when the ferry suddenly hit a huge rolling wave throwing Jack off his feet into the air and heading right down the stairs.  Luckily their was a gentleman walking up the stairs at this exact moment and as fate was smiling on Jack that day the gentleman caught Jack with one arm; the other holding on to the railing.  After Jack got back he continued swaying for about another hour until eventually passing out at the front of the upper deck just before arriving to the island.

This Dane made a wager with another fellow behind us to climb the observation pole for 1000 baht ($30 CDN).

  2. Hi Brooke and Bronwyn,

    I’m very happy for you guys, this is seriously a once in a life time, enjoy it! I’ve checked the weather. Good news, no tsunami on the horizon LOL. That island looks like a place I could spend a lot of time on.

    Take care.
