Late update..... When our boys had autumn brake we went to Thailand with the new family next door (Maria and her 3 sons). We stayed in Ao Nang and Centara resort. Last time we stayed at Centara we had a great time and the resort was really good. This time it was almost as good as last time. It had been worn down a little - and they had NO FRESH MANGO at breakfast. I missed my mango the whole week.
The boys, Ruben, Ossian, Axel, Hjalmar and Erik had a great time in the nice pool. We went cajaking to Railay beach one day and as always this Thailand trip involved a longtail boat to Chicken island. We snorkeled the whole day. It was lovely. Only we on a paradise beach. We brought pick nick baskets for lunch from the hotel. Expensive but very nice.
We will have a hard time in the future when we want to go on holiday´s. Because Ossian and Ruben are now so used to stay at fancy hotel´s that they will not like more "basic" standard hotel´s.
See pictures from the trip. Just click on the link to the right, "read more".
The only way in to town from the hotel is by boat or walking the monkey trail through the jungle. Here is what you can encounter when walking in to town. This little monkey did not make any trouble. The adults though, can be a bit bold. If you have a bag with food they just sneak up from the behind and slit the bag open and take the food. Naughty little monkeys.
Sunset seen from our balcony.
Everybody around me probably felt a bit annoyed at me. I brought the camera everywhere and I took pictures the whole time. Here is one portrait of Maria.
Having fun snorkeling.
The boys tried scuba diving in the pool with at Swedish instructor. They loved it.
Ruben and Ossian on the shuttle boat to/from the hotel. It´s location is in a national park just outside Ao Nang and there are no roads to the place. Very nice and calm place without any traffic noice. Just the sound of shouting Gibbon monkeys in the mountain just behind the hotel and boats passing by.
And finally - my lovely wife Carol enjoying Singa draft.
