Big Buddha was my chosen destination today. The famous golden landmark stands 12 metres at the northeastern part of Ko Samui, and it is visible several kilometres away.
I walked a ridiculous amount today from Maenam beach to the Bang Rak beach where the Wat Pra Yai stands. I don't know what the hell I was thinking. Despite getting slightly lost, I continued on in this heat. Thankfully, I got to see a lot of different areas on my jaunt. I wasn't that stupid to walk back so I took a motorcycle taxi back to where I sit now. It was a good day for pictures.
Like yesterday I had a good swim in the morning followed by some soul searching while staring out at the water.
On another note, I've come to terms with the geckos. They aren't so frightening anymore. I was worried for a while that I wouldn't be able to do any jungle hikes because of them. But now that I realized that I can in most cases, outrun them I am not so freaked out.
