POW! Now we make our way to Koh Samui Airport, quite easily one of the most beautiful airports that we have ever traveled through–lush gardens are all around us, lovely ponds full of lotus plants lead us to our gate, brand new open-air gates with extremely clean toilets nearby open their arms to us–mmm, aaaahh!…and wonderful large golf carts whisk us to our airplane–this whole place feels like a section of DisneyWorld that could be called Thai-Island-Land. . .really gorgeous. . .if there was a pool, then we would stay here for a couple of days just for kicks, but there is no pool, so we board our plane.
I have to tell you that the islands of Thailand have seduced us. . .at least the two that we have visited: Koh Phangan and Koh Samui. These islands are hilly, lush, rugged, warm, and inviting. . .AND all of the people that we encounter here are, for the most part, welcoming and friendly. The locals are feeling a bit of strain though. . .tons of farangs are here looking to party all night long, looking to expand their minds with shrooms and other psycho-tropic substances, and they are trampling things a bit in the process. We hope that the Thai government keeps some kind of lookout over developments on both islands, and we hope that they keep the parties in the isolated parts of the islands where they now exist so that we older and more tired folks can keep coming back to enjoy the serenity and gloriousness that make up the majority of the terrain here. “Chok dee” to everyone involved in managing these delicious islands.
I send you appreciative and gracious vibes from Koh Samui Airport. . .feel them. . .they are good for your mental health.
