A Little Island Called Ko Mak
It is a nice feeling to take a vacation knowing that you can simply relax. I had gotten the job I had been looking for, but it wouldn’t start until October 25. This gave me a few days to just chill out on a beautiful island.
It’s the low season, and based on all the rain from the past few days, I was a bit worried I’d be on an island in the rain. Thankfully that didn’t happen.
Since I knew I had a job, I opted to stay somewhere nicer. The place I chose was Ao Kao, and it was fabulous. I stayed 4 nights and negotiated a discount, which wasn’t hard because of the season and the weather. Chain, the person in charge, showed me 3 beautiful bungalows and they were all so nice it was hard to choose, another reason to travel in the low season.
Now for a walk down the beach.
The next day I went with on a mountain bike ride around the island.
Here’s a little video giving you a 360 of the place:

After ‘one night in Bangkok’ (for you 80s fans) for a Smirnoff party, co-hosted by my friend Yeen, in a swank club on the 25th floor, it was time to head back to Chiang Mai to look for a place to live and start working. Vacation is officially over now.
