A breathtaking boattrip

Så er jeg klar med lidt flere billeder fra vores fantastiske tur til Thailand. Tænk, at det næsten er en måned siden allerede, at vi kom hjem? Det er sørme godt, at jeg har taget SÅ mange billeder og stadig har nogle videoer, der skal redigeres og klippes sammen, som jeg kan vise Jer. Det tager lidt tid, men jeg nyder virkelig, at sidde med det og få genskabt alle minderne. Vi har også af og til lavet en bog fra vores rejser og det er altså en helt anden måde, at kigge billeder på, synes jeg! Har i forresten læst min rejseguide til Ao Nang, Krabi endnu?

Nedenunder, har jeg samlet lidt billeder fra en bådtur vi havde på Phi Phi. Vi havde booket en long tail boat, bare til Thomas og jeg, som skulle sejle os rundt en hel dag, til de omkring liggende øer. Heriblandt Bamboo Island og Maya Beach.

// Finally I am ready with more photos from our amazing trip to Thailand. Can't believe it's almost already a month since we returned home? Thank god I have SO many photos and videos, I have to edit and cut together, that I can show you. Its a bit time consuming but I truly love looking back and recreate all the memories. We have often created a book from our travels, its such a good way to look back at all the photos. Have you read my travel guide to Ao Nang, Krabi yet?

Underneath I have collected a bunch of photos from a boattrip we had one day on PhiPhi. We had booked a long tail boat, just for Thomas and I, that were supposed to sail us around to the surroundingislands for a day. Among others, Bamboo Island and Maya Beach.

- Bamboo Island -

Første stop var Bamboo Island, som var en lille bitte ø 25 minutters sejllads (med longtail boat) fra Phi Phi. Det skal siges vi havde en "spændende" tur, en rigtig sød "skipper", men det var ikke meget kommunikation vi havde, da han knapt nok talte engelsk, men vi fandt ud af det - det er det spændende ved at rejse, det meste løser sig i sidste ende. Med spændende mener jeg, et par motorstop, snak om hajer og rygning (af den sjove slags- ikke til os, men til vores meget lille skipper). Til de, som kender mig, ved hvor stramt jeg har det med den slags, så måske nogen, kan forestille sig det ansigtsudtryk jeg lavede, da han rev en stor pibe op af en spand, lige inden vi skulle til at sejle. Trods jeg et par gange troede at det var ude med os, så havde vi en helt fantastisk tur og jeg ville ikke have byttet den for en anden (så fik vi jo også den gode historie med hjem).

Bamboo Island var helt fantastisk, vi blev smidt af ved en helt to strand, som i kan se Thomas sidde på ovenover, meget eksotisk. Så tog vi ellers svømmefødderne på nakken og vandrede om på den anden side af øen. Her blev vi mødt at turister og tonsvis af både, men et vand der var så blåt og gennemsigtigt. I kan jo selv bedømme ud fra billederne, men det var virkelig fantastisk. Vi lå lidt længere væk fra alle menneskene og havde fundet det bedste spot, synes vi selv.

// The first stop was Bamboo Island, which was a tiny island 25 minute sailing (with longtail boat) from Phi Phi. It should be mentioned we had an "exciting" trip, a really sweet "skipper", but we were not able to communicate a lot, since he barely spoke English, but we figured it out - it's the exciting thing about traveling - you usually figure it out. With excitement, I mean a couple of motorstops, talk about sharks and smoking (the funny kind - not to us but our very tiny boat man). To those who know me, know how I feel about that kind of things, and maybe someone can imagine the face expression I made when he pulled a big pipe out of a bucket just before we were going to sail. Even though I thought we wouldn't make it, a couple of times, we had a fantastic trip and I would not have exchanged it for another (we ended up with a funny story to tell).

Bamboo Island was amazing, we were thrown off by an empty beach, as you can see Thomas sitting on above, very exotic. Then we grabbed our snorkeling equipment and walked across to the other side of the island. Here we were met by tourists and tons of boats, but a water that was so blue and transparent. You can judge yourselves from the pictures, but it was really amazing.

- Nui Beach Phi Phi Don-

Næste stop var Nui Beach, som lå på den modsatte side af øen Phi Phi, hvor vi boede. Her sejlede vi ind i en lagune og så var det altså tid til at snorkle. Vandet var så klart og man kunne nærmest se alle fiskene fra toppen af båden. Thomas og jeg har begge dykker certifikat, så måske i kan forestille Jer, hvor meget vi havde glædet os til dette? Det var den første og næsten eneste rigtige snorkeling vi havde i Thailand og det var SÅ SMUKT! Vi hoppede fra båden og snorklede rundt, indtil vi ikke gad længere - sådan kunne jeg godt tilbringe hver formiddag.

// Next stop was Nui Beach, which was on the opposite side of the island Phi Phi, where we lived. We sailed into a lagoon and then it was finally time to do some snorkeling. The water was clear and you could almost see all the fish from the top of the boat. Thomas and I both have open water (diving certificates), so maybe you can imagine how much we had been looking forward to this? It was the first and almost the only real snorkeling we did in Thailand and it was SO BEAUTIFUL! We jumped from the boat and snorkeled until were to tired - I would like to spend every morning like this.

- Pileh Lagoon, Phi Phi Lee -

Sidst men ikke mindst sejlede vi til Maya Beach (Koh Phi Phi Don), her hoppede vi også af båden og snorklede lidt. Vi betalte ikke for at komme af på stranden, da vi havde været på Bamboo Island - og det kan jeg kun anbefale, det det var lige så fint at se det ude fra og snorkle rundt.

På den anden side af øen sejlede vi ind i en lagune ved navn Pileh Lagoon, som i kan se på billedet ovenover. Det var storslået og jeg har næsten ikke ord for det, ud over, at i bliver nød til at se det med Jeres egne øjne.

// Last but not least we sailed to Maya Beach (Koh Phi Phi Don), here we also jumped off the boat and snorkled a bit. We did not pay to get off to the beach since we had already been on Bamboo Island - and I can only recommend that. It was just as nice to see it from the outside and just to snorkel around.

On the other side of the island we sailed into a lagoon called Pileh Lagoon, which you can see in the picture above. It was magnificent and I hardly have words for it, you just have to go see it with your own eyes.
