Yesterday, Sunday was a day without surfing on my part. I had to pack and sort my clothes and check out of the room before noon.
I woke up at 7am, as per usual. Had breakfast with the group who was going on a day trip rafting before I went out and layed by the pool for a few hour just as a last effort to get aim colour on my skin. Amazingly I managed to avoid getting burned.
After lunch, Katha and I decided to try and walk to Green Bowl - a famous beach near the camp. And by near I mean on the bottom of the cliff. To get there we have to go on the main road, and that’s a bit of a detour. Travis also decided to join, and when we started walking we changed our mind and went for the secret beach we’d heard of from Meike instead. And after a few wrong turns we found the road we had to be on and the path down the cliff. It was a bit slippery and overgrown at times, but the struggle (both me and Katha in flipflops) was worth it when we got down to sea level.
We then decided to try and walk along the reef over to Green Bowl. Doable because of the low tide. It was a fairly uncomplicated walk and we got there pretty quickly. Going back tho is another story. The stairs up from Green Bowl is something else, and it was a long way back on the road. Thank god it started raining when we hit the road, we were all very warm and sweaty. But it was without a doubt a nice and needed walk.
After this we all had a shower and went to the Padang camp for pizza night. I had a really good time, but was insanely tired. When we got back to the camp I was asleep in no time, and then got up again at 4am to catch a flight to Bangkok. This is where I am now, currently in the Siam Paragon shopping centre. I have 14 more hours until I need to check in to the flight that is going to take me home, and the goal is to stay awake for most of that time, so I’ll sleep on the flight and hopefully be able to avoid jet lag!
