Welcome to January 2019

Welcome to January 2019

The first day of a new year and a food moment to say Welcome to January 2019. Under a mostly blue sky with a few clouds. Current temperature at 10.30am is 31C 
It looks like a nice day is about to develop to kick off the start of this new year.

January is a bit of a mixed bag. There are always some days with lots of rain and possibly flash floods. Two years ago it was a real challenge!
This year we have most likely a massive storm moving literally over Koh Samui. Thursday it starts with strong wind and lots of rain. This is to intensify towards Friday midday, when Koh Samui should get the full on strength of the storm. Very strong wind and loads of rain are predicted for the whole day, culminating around 7am to 2pm.
Better lower the hatches for this one.

After the storm has passed, it should clear up fairly quickly though and by Sunday the sun should be out and about again.

Let's hope for the rest of the month to be sunny and nice, without getting too hot. The latter a nice benefit of January!

Welcome to January 2019

Welcome to January 2019; Blessed be the new year! My sister in law's new year morning blessings for her car, motorbike and house. 

During the first part of this month I will be on Koh Lanta, to teach a PADI IDC. On Sunday 27th January I'm planning to run a new personal best for a half marathon in Trang. Not knowing the course, how hilly it possibly may be, I don't know yet how likely that is going to be.

Enjoy your stay on Koh Samui during this January!

Please do 'like' my Koh Samui blog Facebook page and 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. 

You may also opt for a very special dinner experience at The Thai Experience. Behind closed doors, reservation only and a very enjoyable and well worthwhile way of spending an evening on Samui. Authentic Thai food and a great atmosphere. Can highly recommend this experience. 

Contact me for more detailed information on any of the options mentioned.
