Home 6th March

After a pleasant evening stroll in the East Coast Park where there is a good beach, an excellent cyclepath, a walking path and views out across to Indonesia (only around 45 minutes by boat).

Chumphon City a shorter day Saturday 15th December

Only a short day today 43 km into the city of chumphon, this meant a very leisurely start. Breakfast was not a buffet type as per all the other hotels and resorts we have stopped in, instead you order and they make it for you which is nice but you cannot eat until you near explode like normal, it was also proper coffee not instant and the tea came in a pot.

Kyoto staying around Shimogyo Ward in a guesthouse Thursday 29th November
