From Jamie's Philippines Pics

We have also had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places in China, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Bali. We have archived all of our travels and living experiences abroad; and if you wish, you can read about our adventures by finding the archives on the right of this page and by checking our Photo Album.

We appreciate all of our family and friends who have stayed in touch and emailed us with encouraging words throughout the year. We hope you will continue to keep us in your thoughts as we continue our adventure of living abroad teaching at an international school. For those who have stumbled upon our site, check out the "About Eric and Jamie" section on the right for more information.

Thanks for checking us out!

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."
- Mark Twain

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."
- Maya Angelou

Thailand - Day 18 - Koh Chang to China

From Koh Chang Island

Instead of breaking this down into paragraphs, you can get a gist of our day from this little itinerary

6:00 am - woke up, finished packing, on the road trying to find a songthaew taxi to ferry
7:40 am - couldn't find a taxi so early, but this little lady at a resort drove us to White Sand Beach in her private car, we found a taxi from there and made the ferry
8:05 - took the ferry from Koh Chang Island to the mainland Trat
8:40 - another songthaew taxi packed with 12 people took a 30 minute journey from the ferry to Trat Bus Station
9:15 - arrived at Trat Bus Station (not really the bus station)
9:30 - loaded up in a van which took us to the actual bus station - go figure)
9:45 - finally left from real Trat Bus Station and was assured that it would take us the the Bangkok airport
2:30 pm - arrived at the northern terminal bus station in Bangkok (not the airport), had to take a taxi to the airport (Bangkok sucks!)
6:30 pm - finally took an Air Asia flight from Bangkok, Thailand to Shenzhen, China
