Once Christina arrived, we left our temporary home in paradise and exchanged stability in the tropics for life on the road again. We visited some utterly beautiful islands near Ko Phi Phi Don and ended up in Raieley.

In Raieley we got busy with some rick climbing, and enjoyed some of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand [if not the world] I've ever had the pleasure of seeing.
