Koh Lipe – March 2017

This time we stayed at The Reef instead of our usual. We really enjoyed our accommodation and met some great people.  I would recommend The Reef, the staff was super nice, beds comfortable, breakfast was good. The orange tabby cat that I spent a lot of time with has no bearing on my opinion.
We connected with old friends and made new ones, learned how to play “shithead”, developed a taste for unsweetened Chao Manoi, had copious amounts of BBQ squid, saw awesome lightning storms and spent time on the beach.

Helen's Gregory J38
28 days later and we are back!  It wasn’t years on the road but it was a good test of living out of our new Gregory 38 L and 40 L bags (J38 and Z40).  The traveling with carry on only experiment was definitely a success.  It sure was liberating being able to walk off the plane with all our possessions on our backs.  We flew Air Canada, Thai Airways International and the regional Thai Smile.  Absolutely no problems on any of the flights.  Over the years we grew to hate waiting for our luggage to come out on the carousel.  That’s because twice it was lost and was a major hassle.  Eventually it showed up but this worry is no longer a concern.   😀
