Paradise Found – Koh Phangan
After almost 12 months of searching for the right place to put down the anchor the perfect place has manifested.. Its on the lush tropical island of Koh phangan which is the most famous place in the world for its monthly full moon parties which attracts thousands of party people..
Since PhiPhi, I travelled to Phuket, Chiang Mai, Pai, Krabi, Ao Nang, Tonsai beach, back to Phuket then on to Samui, then hopped on a boat here to Phangan..
I stayed for a few days on the north west tip which is popular for snorkelling and diving, the beach is called Haad Mae Had and is connected by a thin strip of sand to the tiny island of Koh Ma.. Its best snorkelling ive had for a while..
I then moved to Haad Yao as I wanted to be close to the Yoga center which I go to every day..
in the meantime whilst staying in a tiny bungalow I was checking online almost every day for a good house to rent.. Luckily I found my place before anyone else, I rushed to the cash machine to pay my first month… then wished for a good neighbour which is just as important.. so on my way to my new pad I passed my good amigo Alvaro from Madrid and said hey man do you wanna see my new paradise.. so he came along and when he saw it he was more excited than me! He was about to leave that day to Koh Samui.. but the next day he paid 1 month in advance.. hehe.. so hes planning to stay as long as possible and is working on making some business.. on the other side is a cool guy from Leeds who also goes every day to Yoga.. there are no more neighbours, only at the bottom of the hill..
The house is on the top of a mountain built upon huge rounded rocks, with a 180 degrees sea view, before the sea are thousands of coconut palm trees.. the other side we have mountains which are a little higher than ours…
Also behind the house is a hidden waterfall, where I get my daily shower and also fresh un tampered drinking water..
Its just 5mins to the beach on the motorbike.. The only thing I need now is a phone line, but the internet is only 5mins away..
