We got up early to travel to Koh Samet. It was a LONG travel day.
We kept seeing this guy's picture on advertisements. He's quite cute, isn't he?
Waiting for the sky train...
Corn lover ice cream? GROSS!
From the sky train, we walked to the bus station.
The bus ticket lady was SO cute!
Our "beautiful" bus...
Um, clean it much?
At the port, where we got tickets for the boat to the island.
Rolling our suitcases along the rickety bridge (it had a lot holes to look down into the water).
Loved this little doggie family!
How. Cute. Is. That?

The dude lugged our suitcases across

Riding in the back of the green taxi truck to get to our hotel
Along the dirt roads with HUGE pot holes
Bridget found a hotel online (but you can't reserve online...you just show up), so we were dropped off in the middle of NOWHERE to find this place.
And had to carry our suitcases over rocks and tree roots. Very unsteady terrain.
But then you get to this. But, they were full, so I stayed there with the luggage while Bridget hiked over the rocks to find another hotel.
The dogs LOVED the beach.
And one came to sit right beside me. :)
She finally came back after receiving some help from some women from the Netherlands. They recommended another hotel not far. Check out those rocks we had to carry our suitcases over. Fun.
As I'm struggling with my suitcase, Mr Gay McSteamy (he was there with his boyfriend who was not near as handsome) comes along and offers to help. He literally picks it up and carries it all the way on his shoulders. So nice!
After a LONG day of traveling, we finally find a room at this "hotel" resort, where we had our own cabin. We were greeted by the all the cats that live there.
More of Koh Samet later!
