Leçon de français 3…Thank you Nelly (Crutchy)

This my third French lesson which Nelly has kindly written for me and emailed from the most appropriate place to receive a French lesson from…France.

Koh Nangyuan Island (Just Off Koh Tao)

So as we wake up in the morning after another mosquito filled night we did our usual routine of walking to the Sai Thong restaurant which is part of our small bungalow community complex. We ordered from the little wooden menus and it is really amazing just how much of an appetite you gather during the night.

This Is My Hammock, There Are Many Like It But This One Is Mine!!!!!

The trip from Koh Samui to Koh Tao is pretty easy. The boat takes a little while, say 1 hour maximum from Koh Samui to Koh Phanang and 2 hour maximum from Koh Phanang to Koh Tao. There are quicker ways of doing this as you can get a faster boat which goes direct (no Koh Phanang stop) but this costs 750 Baht (£15) per person, as opposed to the 420 Baht (around £8.40) we …
