Before leaving Bangkok, we visited Ayutthaya, one of the World Heritage sights. We got there when it opened at 9:00 and tripped through it all by ourselves which was awesome. To be able to walk around, stand on and climb something so old and magnificant was amazing- sort of like when we climbed the Great Wall of China back in 87.
Another highlight was the giant Gold Buddah at one of the several temples we stopped at. It is an honor to be able to enter these temples and place gold leaf flakes on the statues as a sign of respect and for good luck.
Today is Friday,and after flying from Bangkok to Koh Samui, we took the ferry over to this beautiful island of Koh Tao. We have not seen this island yet and heard it has the best diving. Tanner is the diver in the family and has his advanced dive certification. For the next three days he will be taking an intense rescue dive course. I plan on doing some serious exploring to see what exotic beads and components I can find for my jewelry designs-on a treasure hunt so-to-speak.
Stay tuned for more of our Koh Tao stay....
