Ascent Trip Report

I had flown to Nepal to see my Fiance and wait for our interview at the Embassy. We decided to spend a month in Thailand doing some medical stuff (Cheap!) and visiting some islands. After the Bangkok mess we first went to Pattaya, the notorious sex capital of asia. It was fun but too noisey/crowded. Then we flew to Koh Samui island. it was cool and we did some small hikes, and beach play. Then ferry across to Koh Phan-ghan, home of the world famous Full Moon Partys. Its nice if a little hippish. The beaches are awesome as was the Friendly Resort room for $18 rite on the beach. We took our scooter to the interior one day and tried to hike up this the islands high point but got lost in the jungle and it was so boiling hot/humid there was no way we were gonna bushwhack thru drippy insect filled Thai jungle for such a tiny summit so we bailed and went to one of the north beaches so my lady could shock everyone by snorkling in her see-thru micro-thong. Then we ferried to lovely Koh Tao island for a weeks diving and snorkling, before returning to Nepal.
