Sister Spa Time at the X2 Resort in Koh Samui thumbnail

Confused on where we are? I’m catching up on the black hole of content from May of 2016 to April of 2017 — when I jumped forward to blog the summer of 2017 as it was happening. This post is from December of 2016 through February of 2017, when I returned to Koh Tao for the…

Running Like a Girl: A Weekend Away for the Midnight Run Koh Samui thumbnail

I know, I know, things are kind of confusing around here right now, timeline-wise!  Because yes, I’m in Southeast Asia now, but as I’m pretty much the worst blogger on the planet I’m still writing about last year’s trip.

Koh Samui Villa

You know what I love almost as much as being on Koh Tao? Using it as a base to jump off and explore other parts of Thailand. Part of my three months back in Southeast Asia towards the end of 2014 was a little mini tour around some of my favorite parts of the country —…

As much as I loved showing my family around Koh Tao, to me that island is home… and I wanted a vacation! So we planned on rounding out my parents’ visit with a few days in Koh Samui, the big sister of the Gulf Coast Thai islands. Koh Samui is the largest and most developed of…
