A haircut, a massage, and not a lot of Internet

April 8th, 2009 by scott and becky

We have spent the last couple of days relaxing. Scott got a haircut (including thorough head and neck massage), and Becky did some foot reflexology and Thai massage (not to be confused with Thai yoga massage, but still very nice).

It was nice to relax, but we have been frustrated by the lack of Internet here. We have a great signal to our room, but have been unable to get an IP address, and no-one has been able to fix it. Wi-Fi in the lobby and various other places has been spotty and slow. This meant we were unable to finish a bunch of the Internet stuff we had planned for during our time here, but we did manage to finish a couple of books, which will lighten our load a little.

We are off to Thailand tomorrow. We looked into the Tigerline Travel island hopping ferry, but it appears that it no longer runs to Langkawi, and the speedboat connection to Koh Lipe isn’t practical for bikes (and is expensive). So, back to almost plan A – ferry to Satun and bus to Krabi (rather than Phang-nga). Hopefully by leaving tomorrow we’ll miss the busy Songkram traffic, at least for the first few days.
