Ko Lanta, Thailand

Ko Lanta: land of monkeys, sunsets and crystal blue waters…

…and torrential rainstorms that blow up off the ocean and soak the little island. We came to Ko Lanta for some rest and that’s exactly what we got- because there isn’t a single thing to do on this island except nap by a pool or on the beach. We watched the storms from our perch on a hill, and spent lazy days by the pool. Nothing to see but sunsets and monkeys.
