Goodbye to February 2017

Goodbye to February 2017

It's the end of this very short month and time to say 'Goodbye to February 2017'. Besides 2008 and last year, February is usually a very nice month around Koh Samui and this year was no exception.
After the horrendous flood problems in December 2016 and January, just last month, it was time for a change and a break and Koh Samui got the break.

The month was nice and sunny with most days partially clouded skies with lots of blue and sunshine in it. The island could warm up again and recover from the damage done by two consecutive massive rain and flood periods. Lots of roads were fixed very quickly and it for the visitors it was a great time to hang out at the various Samui beaches, do some sightseeing and in general enjoy the atmosphere on our beloved island.
There were only a few times when we had rain, mostly in the evenings or night anyway and yesterday saw a stormy day, with lots of rain and cloudy sky all day long. Today is already looking better again and the sun is out and about again, to send February off in good fashion.

Goodbye to February 2017

Goodbye to February 2017; The Naval Base in Lipa Noi was hosting a two night camping trip of our son's school and all kids in his school year went on the trip. This is usually not an area open for public but on this occasion, parents were allowed to visit their kids on the premises. This big anchor can be found there as well.

It was a busy month for me, with completing a PADI IDC program on Koh Lanta and with just a travel day in-between, starting and completing another PADI IDC program on Phuket, before I could finally make it back home at the end of the month, having been on the road for almost a complete month. Both programs also saw some PADI Specialty Instructor training, which included a good couple of days diving!

Goodbye to February 2017; Near the finish line of this years edition of the Surat Thani marathon, which I completed in a new personal best of 3 hours and 43 minutes, coming in twelfth all over and second in my age category, although only 78 participants started.

Once back on Koh Samui, I enjoyed time being together with my family again, going out for dinner and lunch and slowly start running again after the Surat Thani marathon.

Now it's time to look forward to next month, March 2017, which usually is also a very nice month with plenty of sunshine. See you around on Koh Samui!

Do 'like' my Koh Samui blog Facebook page Enjoy the beaches around the island or in front of your hotel or resort and get some well deserved rest and a break. If you're done resting or need something else to do, there's plenty of things on offer on and around Koh Samui, you can go snorkeling or diving or take a dive course. You can also enjoy some of the trips I recommend, like a half day gourmet lunch and snorkeling trip at the Southern part of Koh Samui or a photography trip where you get to see the most photo genetic spots on the island or go for a drinks tasting tour if you like a tipple or two, 
Contact me for more detailed information on any of the options mentioned.
