Celebrated my full month stay in Koh Tao doing what I do most of my days here, minus the work out and adding some more indulgence of food and laziness... I said it before but will say it again, just because you travel doesn't mean that you have to do and see things at all times. There will also be plenty of days like this!
1. Breakfast at Coconut Monkey
This wasn't really my top choice for breakfast since it's a 15-20 minute walk from where I stay. My intention was like every morning go to somewhere around where I stay but after a message from my neighbor I kind of gave in and agreed to join. Food, coffee and atmosphere is tip top and also it's very good value so it didn't take to much convincing to be honest. 5 minutes in to the walk we struck gold when we found THB 500 on the street so in the end breakfast was kind of free!
The picture above is not really from the breakfast but when we had lunch here a couple of days earlier. Just thought I give you a peak on the view from this place :)
What: Iced Americano + Yoghurt/Fruit/Granola
Cost: THB 170/ USD 4.90/EUR 4.40
2. Coffe And Sunshine At Blue Water
After breakfast and walk back to Sairee beach I thought it was time to plonk myself down at Blue Water for a couple of hours to do some research on my next destination since I can't stay at Koh Tao for ever. Today we finally had some really sunny weather so instead of getting myself in to the same spot where I'm normally found everyday, I opted for the deck to soak up some sun. Research on next destination went out the window and I laid back and listened to an audiobook instead with the company of an Iced Americano and a dog.
About an hour later the neighbor found me and joined the laziness and after a snack and a couple of hours later we decided it was time to move on.
What: Iced Americano + Spring rolls
Cost: THB 200/ USD 5.70/ EUR 5.20
3. Cheesecake At Cafe Culture
So this is when we ended up at Cafe Culture and ordered some cheesecake...
What: White chocolate/passionfruit cheesecake
Cost: THB 120/ USD 3.40/EUR 3.10
4. Massage At Kayo
After moving from place to place just eating, drinking coffee and chillaxing I thought it was time to do something else so headed to Kayo for an hour of a good, hard back and shoulder massage. Since we had the first proper sunny day in about six days, I was the only one with this idea so had the whole place to myself!
What: An hour back + shoulder massage
Cost: THB 300/ USD 8.60/EUR 7.80
5. Nap and Netflix
After massage it was time to turn up the laziness a notch so this is when I went back to my bungalow, laid down, got on to Netflix and watched a couple of episodes of Luther. You can imagine how tired I felt after everything I've been up to this day so in the end I had to give up on Luther and nap instead...
What: An hour or two in bed
6. Pizza At La Pizzeria
What better way to end a great day but with the best pizza on the island joined by a group from the CrossFit gym. Think this is the first time in my life that I met a group of people that are more obsessed about food then I am. Also noticed that you never have to be conscious about what you eat around these people since most of them will defiantly out eat you anyway and after they out eat you they order dessert.
What: Pizza + Ice Tea + Soda Water
Cost: THB 300/ USD 8.60/EUR 7.80
I decided that it was time for a career break. So handed in my notice to the company who I worked with for the last ten years. It's time to pack my bag and depart from Amsterdam which been my home town for the last 4.5 years. -"Amsterdam, it's not you it's me and I need a break!". Read more
WHERE AM I?
