Play it Again Samui

Yep, this was our 3rd visit to the island Koh Samui in Thailand.  Every so often we aim for a Mouth-Breathing-On-the-Beach experience somewhere close to Mongolia.  Somehow we always seem to forget that Mongolia is close to nothing.  Well, OK, Beijing and Seoul.  No beaches there.

So, off we go.  Two overnight layovers and 3 planes later, we get to the beach.  It's the return trip with a midnight flight in the mix that makes us question our choice.

But.  If getting rid of Randy's cough, my red eyes and turning into chubby, tanned and totally relaxed blobs was the goal; we scored big time!

Not ours!  The question begs answering...

Valentines Day--our 1st date 34 years ago!
Randy made reservations for a sea side table at an amazing restaurant, the Page (can we talk about lemongrass sorbet?! Yum!).  Which was attached to an equally amazing resort, The Library.  Check out the red pool:  The Library (Trip Advisor)

Oh, and we had to change hotels because the one we were so happy with before had downgraded to a Dump.  This during Chinese New Year week.  Hunting for an available room seriously cut into our mouth breathing time.

Life at Hotel #1:
Life at Hotel #2:
Our backyard in our private courtyard.  Not budget, but loved every minute.  Except for the daily decision of whether to have a scalding hot shower or an ice cold one. (where ever you go there you are...)

(no we did not eat here)

How nice that you've gotten a few beach trips in this winter. You find the beauty in everywhere you go, even if colored by a little tongue-in-cheek. Love hearing about your adventures!
