We are currently hanging around in the Khao Lak area and we have just come back from a 4-day tour out on the Andaman Sea, where we did 13 dives at the Surin Islands, Richelieu Rock, Koh Tachai, and the Similian Islands. It has been an absolutely fantastic diving experience for us and Ulrika is now going through and editing the nearly 200 video-shoots taken during the dives. These films will end up here and on our Youtube-channel eventually. In the meantime,  we will show you some pictures from our first days here in Khao Lak.
We went out for a long walk in the heat so Ulrika would have the opportunity to take pictures with our new camera, a Sony RX-100. You can find these photos in the slideshow below. Khao Lak was hit hard by the 2004 tsunami, so those who have been here before the catastrophe will perhaps not recognize the place.  A lot of big resorts has popped up since then in the Khao Lak area, but we found nice places to take photos.  Khao Lak is a very green place,  where the Lam Ru National Park rise up just behind Khao Lak and squeezes the villages in the area between the djungle and the Andaman sea.

Vi hänger för tillfället i Khao Lak och har precis kommit tillbaka från en 4-dagars tur ute på Andamanska havet där vi gjort 13 dyk vid Surin-öarna, Richelieu rock, Koh Tacha och Similian-öarna. Det har varit helt fantastisk dykning, och det har genererat nästan 200 film-klipp som nu Ulrika går igenom och redigerar. Dessa filmer kommer hamna på bloggen och på vår Youtubekanal så småningom. I väntan på det får ni istället se lite bilder från våra första dagar här i Khao Lak.
Vi var ute på en långpromenad i hettan för att Ulrika skulle få tillfälle att fota med vår nya kamera, en Sony RX-100 och ni hittar dessa bilder i bildspelet nedan. Khao Lak drabbades hårt av tsunamin år 2004, så ni som har varit här innan känner nog inte igen er. Det har växt upp en hel del stora resorts i Khao Lak-området, men vi hittade fina ställen att fota och detta är en väldigt grön plats där nationalparken Lam Ru reser sig bakom Khao Lak och klämmer in byarna i området mellan sig och havet.

Our pictures from Khao Lak:


The sun isn’t always shining in Khao Lak. We’ve had thunder and lightning almost every night. This amount of rain is very uncommon during the dry season. Fortunate for us, the clouds usually comes around during the evening and we like rain so it is not bad according to us.

We’re eating both local stuff, like the lovely noodle soup,…

Thai-version of Sushi, with their own kind of rice,…

and we did go to the only McDonalds in town and had a Mcflurry and a Sundae.

Pontus training in our 25 meter-pool.

And they are our reason not to sit with our computers all day. Our friends Karin and Patrik decided to join us here in Khao Lak, so we’re spending our time with them – eating, drinking, talking, laughing, sunbathing and swimming in the Andaman sea 🙂
