After spending about a week enjoying historic sights in Cambodia and the company of the Khmer people we headed straight for the closest Thai island. Koh Chang is a solitary island in South East of Thailand. We traveled here with Jeff’s family and spent a few days on this quaint little island. We stayed on White Sand Beach, which is accurately named for it’s long stretch of soft white sand. One day we participated in another Thai cooking class. This class was much more educational than our cooking class in Pai. We made 5 different types of curry, pad thai, tom yam soup and ended with sticky rice and mango. Yummmm. We all had a great time. Jeff’s birthday was while we were in Koh Chang. It was a special day especially since we were with his family. We rented motorbikes, which is always a blast, and cruised around the island to a different beach. Afterwards we jumped into a fancy resort’s pool and had a couple pina coladas at their swim up bar. Not a bad way to spend your birthday. After Koh Chang we traveled back to Bangkok where we said goodbye to his family and continued our journey down the country to another set of islands.
