End of the road - Koh Chang
I described Koh Samet as paradise. Koh Chang was the same paradise but on a larger scale. Our first holiday together was in Phuket 2 years ago and it was a fitting end to conclude our trip in Thailand.
Koh Chang gave us the temperatures of that we felt in Australia until the Singapore-like heavy storms and rains fell. Dramatic Hawaiian sunsets overlooked New Zealand's North Island rainforests.
Outside our accommodation sits a fishing village reminding us of Penang, Malaysia. We chosen the Nirvana Resort and like the description of Bali, it had the same laid-back relaxing mood in a setting much similar to Fiji's Sonaisali Island Resort where we got married and started our honeymoon. The food there is as delicious as Vietnam's vast cuisine. Our luxurious room boasted large fluffy towels and a bath that the Americans in New York would envy.
Unlike Hong Kong there seems to be few people around. By the pool we reflected on our experiences - 17 planes across 11 countries, 73 different caravan parks, 25 hotels, 3 overnight trains, 2 backpacker rooms, a boat and a homestay provided our accommodation across thousands of miles round the world. We watched Atonement noting the scene filmed on our hometowns' beaches. Yesterday we arrived back home in Redcar and already are drafting plans for our next jaunt.
We thank you all for following our adventure, the messages of support and encouragement and hope you will share our married life round Europe as 'Ying And Yang In A Caravan'.
