After a very responsible evening, I was awake bright and early to enjoy a quiet walk on the beach at White Sands. The water temperature is about 25 degrees, heavenly.
Since I had rented a scooter yesterday I decided to go around the north or east side of the island where it is much quieter but I also heard the roads were less windy. I wanted to make it to the end of the road in this direction. Having never been on a motorcycle or scooter before this trip, it has been exhilarating to play around on one. I can almost see the draw for motorcycles now... 😛
You can fill up with gasoline at most road side shops. They have 1.14 L bottles that cost $1.50 (they use old liquor bottles or coke bottles). I ended up going into the Koh Chang Spa & Resort for breakfast. I didn’t quite make it to the end of the road because I needed to make it back to my room to pack up and check out. I then hopped on a songthaew down to Lonely Beach. I met up with Sun who took me on his scooter to 4-5 places to find new accommodation. I ended up in a loft apartment with a king sized bed (and a spiral staircase that made me nervous sober, much less after a couple drinks) with a view of the gulf ($60). Spoiled! After getting settled (and taking my second shower of the day) I went and got a fruit smoothie and hit the beach till sunset. The evening was spent with new friends at #gubaybar and a relatively early night to get ready for a day long boat tour. .
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
