Welcome to April 2015

April Fools' day and a good moment to say 'Welcome to April 2015'. Usually this is the warmest month around Koh Samui and with hardly any rain. Strangely enough we had two years with a bit of rain during Songkran recently, the (in)famous Thai New Year. Our third New Year  this year, after the Western and Chinese celebrations.

Welcome to April 2015

Trees are considered 'holy' in Thailand, this one is located at Namuang Waterfall in Baan Namuang

Enjoy this month, Songkran is a party not to be missed and look out for a busy island with Thai and foreign tourists swarming down on the island during this month.

Goodbye to March 2015

It's time to say Goodbye to March 2015. The weather has been excellent this month, almost no rain and it started to warm up from the beginning of the month when it as still nice and cool to the end when it was just plain hot at some days.

An outstanding month for the weather but we cloud do with some rain to replenish the ground water levels, although it doesn't loom like this is in the making soon.

Work took me away from Samui most of this month, first a PADI IDC in Moalboal in the Philippines and after just being home for 5 days, I'm now in Khao Lak conducting the current Khao Lak PADI IDC, but the family is with me, so we can spend some time together.

Goodbye to March 2015

A small Chinese style statue at Wat Lamai

Although I wasn't home a lot last month, we still managed to go out for dinner a few times, first was at the beginning of the month during the local monthly Skal dinner, this time held at Coast, a write up to follow next month about this location, and out usual fave hangouts, Juzza Pizza in Fisherman's Village and Kobori in Maenam, a Japanese restaurant. Both highly recommendable.

See you all next month again and thanks for visiting my Samui blog, don't be shy though and come back next month again!
