My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

4x4 Thai Adventure - Day 10

"Don't be afraid to take a big step. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps..."

Day 10: 14 September 2014 (Sunday)
Chumphon - Hatyai
Distance: 479 km

(Fishermen with their catch)

The scenery from our chalet is awesomely beautiful this morning. We watched the hustle bustle of busy fishermen bringing their catch to the shore as the sea water was receding fast.

After checking out, we started our journey at 08:00 driving south. We stopped at a petrol station to have a hot cup of coffee and halal burger from 7-eleven. With the assistance of the GPS we managed to locate a Muslim Restaurant in Lang Suan and had nasi goreng for breakfast. There is also a newly built mosque near the restaurant.

We drove on and located another halal restaurant a few km away from Patthalung and had nasi lauk for lunch.

We reached the Golden Crown Hotel in Hatyai early afternoon. After a refreshing shower and prayers, the ladies went to a nearby salon to have facials and hair wash. After, we joined the men for a two hour aromatherapy body massage at a nearby Charawa Massage Parlor.

We had dinner at Khalid Restaurant next door and later walked a short distance to Pink Lady near Lee Gardens Hotel to buy t-shirts and souvenirs. Before we walked back, we packed pulut durian from warung Aji and ate at Khalid Restaurant.

Tonight we slept soundly and rested our tired body well.
