|5th-7th Jan Hua Hin Thailand
After leaving the River Kwai we headed for Hua Hin, which we were told had a lovely beach and Karen wanted to check out the Chive Som spa there. Chilling out on a beach was something we were both looking forward to as we hadn't seen the sea since Turkey.
We found a great hotel overlooking the sea and at night it was especially pretty as we could see all the lights of the restaurants around us and hear the lapping of the waves as we were in bed. Very peaceful.
The beach is lovely and after having a few lazy days on the beach, massages, pedicures etc etc Karen felt wonderful. David did his best to get her into the sea to leard how to swim but he failed miserably!!! She did sit in the sea and paddle, it felt lovely as it was so warm.
The restaurants are great here and we have had delicious lobster, squid, prawns etc
Heading for Krabi after this as it is SO good to be by the sea again.
8/9th Feb Still in Hua Hin
We were planning to leave at 5 to avoid the heat in the middle of the day but David's back starting playing up and we couldn't leave for 2 days
10/11 Feb Krabi
We did leave today very early but Karen had to pack the car and check the car! This is definitely a less stressful way to do it as David can't complain about the amount of luggage Karen has!
