For a small island, Railey has a lot to offer, and over the past 9 days we've done our best to do more than laze by the pool and stroll from restaurant to restaurant. Being a top tourist destination, Railey reminded us sometimes of Dubrovnik or Santorini: great views and climate but often poor service and unfriendly staff. Nevertheless, we made the most of our tropical destination and kayaked, snorkelled, had a thai massage and went for a thai cooking class where we learnt how to make spring rolls, chicken and coconut soup, penang curry, pad thai (fried noodles with prawns) and sweet pumpkin and coconut milk dessert.

Wim also went rock climbing and enjoyed the physical challenge as well as the view of Railey from high on the cliffs. It's been great, but we are both a bit saturated and so moving on to Khao Lak the day after tomorrow!

Its spider man!
