A taxi to the train station; an overnight train from Kuala Lumpur into Thailand; the back of pickup truck to the bus station; a bus to Krabi, Thailand; a van that went on two ferries; and finally a motorcycle taxi to our hotel in Koh Lanta. Phew. You’re probably tired, just reading that!
The upside to this 24 hour journey was transportation outfitted with large windows, perfect for endless hours of daydreaming!
Of course, the reward was quiet pristine beaches, the wonderful sound of waves washing ashore, mouthwatering Thai food, and glorious sunshine that cast trails of glitter on warm ocean water. We stayed in darling bungalows at Lanta Pearl Beach Resort, a hop, skip, and a jump from the beach. A true vacation!
