Our Activities In Koh Samui

Here we go again. Trying to keep you guys updated with our holiday adventures can be time consuming.

We have been back to work for a week now and what a shock to the system that is.

We decided that our 8 day stay on the island would be relaxing and no rushing about on daily trips so we agreed to pick one each and that was that. The rest of the days would be spent on the beach (definitely my kinda holiday).

First activity was chosen by my husband - ATV riding in the mountains. Oh dear, did I really agree to this? It's bad enough off roading here in Aus but dirt tracks on the back of an quad?

On arrival they make you do a practice run around a course. Hub enjoyed this and started stropping coz he thought that was it!! It sure looks as though he made a mess.

The quad and us were absolutely filthy by the time we got to the top of the mountain but it was fun. A few times I tried to look over my husbands shoulder and got a face full of mud (very gently wiping it off on the back of his T shirt).

But what a beautiful view once we got to the top. A great stop off for that much needed bottle of water.

After a little rest we went on to check out the Magic Gardens, only accessible with 4x4 vehicles. What a gorgeous garden someone made and all with beautiful ornaments and tiny houses. More riding followed then a lovely dinner after and back down the mountain. I really think going down is worse than going up!!!
