    3 Day Trip Around Rayong Pic Report

    A bit of recon for a move out East.

    Kidnapped the Sproglette and foked off to have a gander at what beach I might like to shack up on.




    We all need sustenance.





    Pass.


    Finally arrived for a sunny beach break.

    And get myself set up for a bit of Loopering.









    Samet in the background.


    Unfortunately there was no moon, no planets and the only pair of tits to be seen were a couple of Tipperary lads.

    I suspect the dinner from the restaurant out front was in fact dog, yes.

    Spotting a unicorn.


    Ghost Tower



    Bet some Scandinavians lost a fair whack of Kroner in that.




    Also bet there's a fair whack of teenage sex and drinking goes on in there.

    Was hoping for a clear sunset of it going into the sea.



    But alas, it wasn't to be.

    Was cloudy each evening.


    Went down along to where there are beach seafood restaurants etc.






    Loverly.


    Found a relatively clear patch to go crab hunting.

    If you don't like eating plastic bags and bottles of urine you can get stuck into the next rung up the ladder.

    Or do a quick sharp harp over to Ban Phe to Lucky's Kitchen pizzeria and Mexican.

















    That's a bit more like it.

    Just the hold the raisins and serve the Teddy blind.



    Grows her own herbs in the garden.








    Handy little place if you find yourself in Ban Phe and in need of some proper food.

    Rayong Aquarium.

    Little fishing boat cove next to Rayong Aquarium.





    It's probably nicer when the tide's in.







    The good thing is that it's 30b for Thais and whities alike, so you don't have to jump up and down shouting about how long you've lived here in incomprehensible Thinglish when buying the tickets.

    Rayong Aquarium

    Quite a bit of it looked like a screensaver that you see on the TV's when walking past IT City.





    10b if you stick yer mit in and give him a little tickle under the chin.








    Some rays and sharks, but I need to meet up with Punty and thieve his phone to do them proper justice.









    Good little place, for only bladdy 30thb, if in Ban Phe.

    Strawberry Town

    The hills up behind were really quite impressive, a little bit like the North once you got up there.











    Some good motorbiking roads.

    Strawberry town.

    Weird place, if ever there was one.








    A giant, and completely deserted, mock Dutch town from the 19th Century.


    At least I got to introduce new vocabulary such as ghost town, creepy, and to get the heeby-geebees.

    And not a soul to be seen or heard. Completely devoid of any life forms.

    There was a small round glass restaurant looking thing at the end by the lake that I could push the door open.






    When suddenly this guy appeared.



    Who brought me an Erdinger Dunkel and club sandwich







    After which we steadily got the fok outta there before our souls were captured and held there in the windmill for all eternity.

    Credit where credit is due ... good trip report, and I'm sure there's more to come.

    Looks like there were no Chinese hoards crowding that strawberry place.


    From memory there's quite a few Members who live down that way, did you take the time
    to catch up with any of them?

    Our fingerprints never fade from the lives we touch

    Back down the road from The Shining Town, is a pretty dire Waterpark and Zoo kinda place called Tamnanpar.



    Where you can see a bird in a cage.



    A bird in a bigger cage



    See a peacock.





    Have a quick grope



    Pay 1,000thb for eating a Mars bar.



    Decide you're too old to go arse over eyes down a water slide





    Possibly lose a kid to a wooden bridge built by Thais.



    Before buggering off to get drunk.

    Wholesome Buffet Lunch at Old Germany in Ban Chang. Full of Maptaphut Industrial Estate high-fliers.









    Tasty mashed spuds in fairness.







    Worth stopping off in if passing through Ban Chang at lunch time.

    Morning dips were nice.



    Best thing about the trip was sleeping next to the beach/sea with the curtains and windows open (no noise or light pollution) and the fresh sea breeze coming in through the mozzie net (not that there were mozzies up that high). Amazing how fresh yer night's sleep is with the fresh sea breeze and half a bottle of Black Label in ya.

    Wouldn't live in Rayong town though, the beaches are too rubbish strewn for me morning swim.

    Bang Saray was nicer whilst stopping on the way back.



    Will have to head there for further recon.








    Might buy that top one when me Bitcoin goes Full-On Moon-Lambo.

    Nice pics Lulu.

    Seems you took your holiday when the freak summer storm and cold snap came over.

    Your weather forecasting seems to be as proficient as your longterm altcoin portfolio
