deep water soloing

i am now getting excited about going home in 2 weeks!! however, it has still been enjoyable here. i went deep water soloing, well i didnt actually do much- it was at low tide so everything was very high and quite hard. i wasnt about to do a 6b at 15 metres! but there were a few confident/crazy...

fear of falling, rusty bolts, and dying flip flops

The climbing in Tonsai is perhaps what i expected- good but polished and a little overhyped. when you open up the guide book and flick through all the pages, it looks like there is so many good areas, however, you then start looking at the quality of the bolts and half the climbs you want to do...

fish massage, monasteries, and beautiful beaches

the last day in Bangkok i meandered for most of it. i did get a fish massage out of curiosity! these special fish swim in a pool and you put your feet in there- they feed of dead skin and bacteria so they then come and sit on your feet and nibble your dead skin- sounds a bit weird when i write...

Railay

So I was well and truly over Phuket, didn't even have a big night. I had a hunger for some lapping, gentle waves, so I booked myself a minibus back to Ao Nang and a longtail boat to Railay. The change was automatic. Not quite as hustle-y, but that is probably because everything is a lot more...

Relaxing in Railay

I can't believe that we didn't write about Railay. We just didn't have anytime since we stayed their for eight days lounging around the pool and eating at our restaurant, and watching movies on HBO. Railay was the closest thing we did that would be considered a normal vacation. The...

Leaving Tonsai

This AM, after the usual breakfast, I checked out and decided to kill the remaining time before the boat for Phuket departs by getting a 1 hour Thai Message - a "real" massage whereby the patient stays clothed except for shirt removal. It's an aggressive massage that can best be described as a...

Around the world to meet my...

Getting up early on the 21st, I met up with other travelers who also signed up for a 4 nights / 5 day all-inclusive side excursion from Tonsai. We traveled via long boats to Au Nang, then by vans to Trang, and finally by a small cruising vessel to the petite isolated island of Lao Liang - about...

The Deep Water Solo Excursion

Today I went out with a group for deep water solo climbing. This is done by boating - usually to an island, and during high tide- and locating a cliff area with deep water below. A kayak takes a climber or two over to the wall, whereby you get out and climb up until you fall, reach the top, or...

Hiking Around

Today I hiked around the Tonsai and Railay area. While doing a little climbing and exploration, I found a small opening that eventually lead to a large cavernous cave. It winded around inside the mountain and then came out much higher on the same mountain wall. It had a thick fine...
