On the way to Krabi

Spending three days in a national park certainly leaves its mark on body & mind. To get there, I decide to hitchhike for the first time in Thailand.

It worx well. With Kygo sounds and sunshades I take a seat on a pick up truck und ab die Post. The first takes me to the pier, the second to Krabi and the third to Phrang Nga. From there I get a free ride on a police scooter to the bus station for 50 baht. I understand his all too benevolent farang grin, get some pad thai into the system and catch a local bus north to Takua Pa and then back the same road for half an hour and east to arrive at Khao Sok at dusk.

DAY 1

I walk straight to the rainforest.

Meet up with some Turkish guys and a guide named Joy having… well, let’s call it a special bamboo breakfast. Since there was an accident a couple of months ago, signs have been put up saying it is not advised to go the nature trail without a guide. I go in at around 9 a.m. and come out about 8 hours later.
