When you next journey is right ahead you can save yourself from trouble and stress with the right packing list:) Packing my bags is always a huge challenge for me – it doesn’t matter if it is just a weekend trip or a long journey. In the end I will forget certainly half…:D A special challenge are long road trips or journeys. If you are going to Australia, Thailand or Brazil for a couple of month you should definitely have some certain things in your bag! Sure, it could rain all the time and you need an umbrella, a rainproof jacket AND a rain cape… and of course all 13 bikinis in your bag are particulary important for you;) But you often forget to take some helpful travel essentials with you. Some of them could help you in many situations:) When it comes to snoring roomies in your hostel dorm, an empty mobile phone battery or a dengue fever warning your prettiest rain cape can’t help you 😀 //
My next stop was Koh Phi Phi:) We booked the trip from Koh Lanta to Koh Phi Phi at our hotel. The trip was about 300 baht. I think that’s actually very cheap. I stayed at the papaya resort, which I can highly recommend.:) The resort is uphill, so you have to overcome literally 300 steps, but the ocean view from the hotel room is absolutely worth it! Another big plus is the fact that they bring you breakfast to your room in the morning. The breakfast includes yogurt with fruits, a sandwich and a freshly squeezed orange juice!:)
I had not that high expectations on the Island to be honest. That’s because Koh Panghan is considered as very touristic and comparable with Koh Samui. Contrary to my expectations I was very impressed when I got there. I only paid 30$ for my flight from Bangkok to Surat Thani. It takes a little longer if you book a flight to Surat Thani instead flying directly to Koh Panghan, but it’s as well much cheaper. You can take a Ferry from Surat Thani to Koh Phangan, which costs only about 10$.
Unfortunately I had only the time to visit two of the Hawaiian islands. Since we had to make a decision and I wanted to experience the magic of the big island we booked a flight from Maui to Big Island. First, the Big Island is the youngest of the islands, and secondly it is the biggest. All in all it covers an area greater than all the other islands combined. Despite the size of the Island, it is not as touristic as Maui or Ohahu. In contrast to Maui, which is full of green flora, Big Island is characterized by black fields of lava. That’s because one of the most active volcanoes in the world is located there.
Peace-Love-Surf-Party ! These words best describe Maui itself and the stay at the Banana Bungalow Hostel.
