Goodbye to January 2016
It's time to say Goodbye to January 2016, the first month of this year is about to be done and over with.
Let's start with the weather, it was a mixed bag, there were plenty of nice and sunny days but also plenty of stormy and wet days and for Thai meanings, even cold days. Although, fair enough, nothing like the 16C that came along in Bangkok and Northern Thailand, that would even have been cold for me, after having lived here for 16 years.
Especially the storm that raged over Koh Samui 25th January was noteworthy!
The last couple of days have been nice and fairly sunny again. I would measure this January fairly average for a January on Koh Samui.

On a personal level, I was busy on Koh Lanta for a PADI IDC and spent a good two weeks there. A lot of running was done this month, both on Koh Lanta and Koh Samui, I'm attempting to run my third full marathon ever 14th February in Surat Thani and I got 290km's on the clock this month.
Great food was had at two of our fave eateries on the island, Kobori, a Japanese restaurant in Maenam and Juzza Pizza in Fisherman's Village,
A good month for me and I'm looking forward to February, hopefully less bills to pay and a good marathon time in the making!
