Yesterday Cecilia came to Srithanu so we walked around in the village, visited Secret Beach, drank coffee at Art Café and had the most amazing dinner ever at Eat Co.

Yesterday I rented a scooter (for 150 baht/day!!) and drove to the north of Koh Phangan from where I hiked to Bottle Beach. The hike was pretty tough but I was still happy being in the middle of a jungle with lots of lizzards so it was all goood. It took me about an hour to get to Bottle Beach and holy moses it was beautiful. There were some fancy resorts and houses along the beach but other that that it was completely secluded with just a couple of other tourists swimming in the turquoise sea. I had a couple of swims, ate watermelon and just loved life.
the beautiful Haad Khuad, also knows as Bottle Beach

Eat Co. which I already mentioned before, is an all vegan restaurant/café and it's super cozy, bohemic, hippie and amazing!!! Everything I've had so far has been top notch:
Dahl of the day with brown rice & coriander
This blogpost was meant to come up on Wednesday 25th but the internet hadn't been the best at all times so it apparently failed to upload.... I'm gonna post this anyways sooo this was my Wednesday:
I started my day with a Vipassana meditation class at Samma Karuna. Afterwords I went to Art Café, I could've sat there for hooours with all their books (and delicious coffee)
so many vegan options <3
I'm pretty sure I'm as relaxed as our cute hostel dog is in this picture. I get these rush feelings of happiness all the time and I'm so grateful for everything in my life right now. Yeah yeah I'm being a lil' cheezy but I'm also serious and mean it:) My days have been super chill and me and Cat were just talking about how we both feel/felt like Julia Roberts in the movie Eat, Pray, Love, because that's pretty much what this part of Koh Phangan is for. Yesterday I had a private restorative yoga practise with a volonteer at Samma Karuna who I keep bumping into. Before that I had a nice long swim in the sea and booked my flight tickets from Surat Thani to Bangkok (for 20€?!) I'm soooo glad that Lina, another backpacker helped me figure everything out because otherwise I probably would've taken the bus instead which is pretty much the same price but I would've wasted 11 hours on sitting in an uncomfortable bus.. So I have until the 4th to do whatever I want to do, freedooooom!

I've been having another wonderful day here in Ko Phangan.
I started my morning with a complimentary breakfast of coffee, jasmine tea & mango shake.
I started reading The Secret outside the Gaia Yoga studio..
I walked up to Sunset Hill viewpoint..
Walked past this cool workshop earlier. I know I've said it before but I absolutely LOVE it here.

We got to Ko Phangan today and while the others went to stay at a hotel at the southest point of the Island, I checked into my very own bungalow at the Golden Rock Bungalow's in Srithanu. I'm right by the beach and right next to Gaya Yoga retreat. Life's so good to me right now...
On my way to Surithanu I bought the BEST watermelon I've ever had. 19 baht/kg holy moly...
This veggie curry was soooo unbelievebly tastyyyyyy! Cat and Emilia told me to go to the Sunshine restaurant and to say hi to the owner and so I did. She remembered Cat and Emilia and immediately asked if she should bring me the exact same thing they had had and I ofcourse said YESSS. She's the sweetest woman ever and her cooking's the bomb. I'm definitely going back for sticky rice mango later!
Yesterday me and Cecilia explored the northern part of Koh Samui, we swam in our pool, visited the Big Buddha and walked to Fisherman's Village where we had an amazing dinner at Greenlight Café
We give the food at Greenlight Café a 10+. After walking back to our hotel, we finished the day with a nice evening swim:)

Me and Cecilia are now waiting for our flight to Koh Samui where we'll be spending one night, and tomorrow we're heading to Ko Phangan with her boyfriend and his friend. We've had such a good time here in Chiang Mai I'm really gonna miss is (and the other girls ofcourse).
