Before I go any further - Listen to this to get in the mood. This is probably the song that's played the most.
Our journey was estimated to be a quick three hours. Two hours of flight time and one hour stopover. I should have realized at this point that our trip had gone too smoothly. Let's backtrack a little - there hasn't been a trip that we've been on were we don't lose something, a train breaks down in the middle of nowhere, our luggage goes missing, you get it! We were just approaching Krabi airport when Steve said "I think the plane is turning around - back to Bangkok!" I didn't believe him and I replied with "Steve, the pilot is probably just doing circuits." Nope! Steve was right. We were headed back to Bangkok because something was wrong with the planes landing gear - and we needed a longer runway to touchdown. Awesome. Thankfully the delay was only a few short hours and the fed us cheese sandwiches and orange Fanta. Finally by 9:00 p.m. (after a 9:00 a.m - start to our day) we arrived. And the wait was worth it. Because Railay Beach is gorgeous. Don't you agree?
