Fed up with the grey Breton winter. I want to go back to Thailand! To bathe in the translucent azure of the Andaman Sea. Contemplate the dizzying limestone cliffs of Phang Nga Bay and Koh Phi Phi. Climb the rocky curves of Similan Island. Spin on a long-tail boat to a beautiful beach... how about a little Thai sun?


I put below you some pictures chosen expressly to counteract the seasonal depression. A mix of Koh Phi Phi and Similan Island ...

Ah, the islands of southwestern Thailand. How beautiful they are!

Besides, that's where I first met whale sharks and manta rays. Will I be so lucky again, in a little less than four months?

I am like a child waiting for Christmas. The departure seems far far away ...

  1. Ah, the foot! For my part, it's in a little over 4 months in the Visayas. it's long longggggggggggg
    If you can give me a book on the Philippines, I'm interested.

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you for these photos !! It's good because, as you say yourself, it's the seasonal depression ... and not in Britain!
    For my part, I have to wait until February for the heat, which will be Australian ... (Perth)

  3. Yes, but at least you have a date, you! I do not know when will be "Christmas" for me, but I swear I will enjoy my gifts that day ... Thank you for these photos! Here too, it's all gray. Nothing is more depressing than bare trees!

  4. Ahhh ... but what is this plugin that allows you to make your photos appear in Flash like this? ... Superb effect, I love!
    (uh... sorry, the pictures are a bit off-putting too... 😉 )

  5. @ Eric: Yes, we need books to wait during these long winter months ... The great specialist of the Philippines is the German Jens Peter. He has published a lot of guides, they are easy to get in English, I think, but I do not know if they are translated into French. The best thing is to visit his site here:

    @ Helen: Oh there ... We support each other, from Rennes to Geneva! Your images of Cambodia have helped me to dispel the greyness, I must say. Highly the month of February!

    @ Marie-Julie: Yes, at least I have a goal! Still far away, but it's there ... I know that the Canadian winter is much harder than the Breton winter. Our trees here are not all naked. They still blaze beautifully despite the gray rain.

    @ Marie Ange : Eh eh!!! You are the only one to have noticed that I was testing a new gadget. In fact, I'm using my usual plugin (the one that I use to integrate the FLV videos) to insert this Flash animation in the WordPress page: it is about pb-embed flash. The novelty is the animation itself, which is actually the elegant SlideShow Pro associated with Adobe, which I used a long time ago, and that I had stupidly forgotten at the bottom of my hard drive. I just updated, there are new features. There, I did everything with my little hands coding myself to test, but Adobe offers extras to manage it easily from Lightroom for example.

  6. At the Similans, the island n°4, Donald duck bay, the boulders, the view point, the small bungalows on the hill overlooking the Andaman sea, the tents on the beach, the restaurant run by the rangers (mé pet, mé pet !!), the Thais who swim with life jackets... Oh, damn... I have to go back !!... 😳
    Phi-Phi, I like less with all these people who come to lie on a dream beach in search of the place where Leonardo put his buttocks and then the water is green ...
    For the slideshow, there are plenty of them. In free DfGallery is fine:

  7. @ Orion56: Yes, they are beautiful these rocks. A bit like those of Koh Tao, on the other side, in the Gulf of Siam.

    @ Marie-Net: By Jove! This is the first time I get tagged !!! I stick to it as soon as I have a little time to myself ...

    @ Marie Ange : Yes, I like this kind of presentation. It's sober and elegant. The free DfGallery indicated by Alimata is almost identical.

    @ Alimata: May fart, may fart... Not spicy, you bet! It's the same joke in Thai restaurants everywhere. 😆
    As for Phi Phi, yes, it's true that it's not what it was. But the landscape is fabulous. I've already talked about it here: Back to Koh Phi Phi, and there: The beach of "The Beach". Below, photo of said "Beach" (Maya Beach) well invaded ...

    Finally, thank you for the link of the free slideshow of DfGallery (still a link that I had already stored also in a corner and forgotten). You're also called Alimata-the-good-pipes, right?

  8. Indeed, very "pretty" the picture !!!!
    😀 😆

    In fact, I've never been to James Bond Island ... Perhaps I'll be daring to take a detour to this Thai tourism mecca on my next trip?
