The customs line at the Edinburgh airport was surprisingly long and when we got to the front, the lady asked us if we too were here for golf. We didn’t know what she was talking about but since we’re the type to follow the action, we decided to find out.
Even though Paris and Scotland are our scheduled destinations on this trip, I found a sneaky way to sqeeze one more country onto the itinerary. The flight from Paris to Edinburgh is only about 2 hours but for some reason most of the journeys come with extremely long layovers. Layovers are annoying .
It took us 7 hours, a taxi ride, a bus ride, another taxi, a ferry and one more taxi to reach our hostel in Koh Chang.. but the journey was worth it.
I’m am currently writing from the deck of our tent, on top of a cliff, overlooking this view.
The other night, as we were out listening to the melodic tunes of our favorite Thai cover band, my bathing suit top was being stolen from the laundry line on our hostel patio.
On the plane to Iquitos we read about Masato, or “jungle beer,” in our Amazon survival book. Apparently, when you visit a tribe, they will offer you this beverage which you must drink or it’s considered highly offensive.
