The Maldives Day 11: Kuramathi Island Resort - Fun beach finds and sunset on the sandbank

Are you guys getting tired of all the photos of the same place? Well it is almost over! Just two more posts to go. 



Big shark!



Fruit bats eating the fruit!

We really just swam all day! Raymond went snorkeling again in the morning and I was in the pool almost the entire day - just out for lunch and to get more cold beverages!

Can anyone guess what this is?

When we were out on the sunset cruise the night prior we saw that you could walk forever out on the sandbank since it was low tide. So we headed out there for sunset and it was gorgeous!






You had to wade across some really shallow water at times, but you could walk out really far
















Looking back at the island from out on the sandbank

















The water is really shallow, but the tide was coming in. I was okay until Raymond stepped somewhere and almost stepped on a sand crabbie! He moved and buried himself again, but then I was worried I would step on them!
















On the way back to our room after sunset I took photos of lots of fun things I found on the beach









There were so many hermit crabbie!


















The hermit crabbies would always hide when you got close










I don't know what this hermit crabbie was doing - making a hole for himself?


Tiny sand crabbie! They move so fast they look like fuzzies blowing across the sand



Back at the room - so gorgeous here!

We went back to the Indian restaurant again for dinner - another veggie ball

We had Harabara Kabab - veggie patties

And Vegetable Samoosa - both were delicious! Normally I am just so so on samosas. They are good, but not my favorite. These ones were delicious!!

And we tried the Dum Aloo Kashmir - potatoes with dried fruit

And Rajma Masala - kidney bean curry! I like kidney beans more than chickpeas so I loved this

And more of the Kulcha as it is so tasty

And we tried the Puri - deep fried bread puffs. Everything was super tasty!! We definitely need to plan a trip to Indian just for the foods! We were so stuffed again, but totally worth it! 

Afterwards we spied on the live bands at the bar near here, but they were just so so. So we spied on the band at the bar near our place which I enjoyed a lot more, but it was really muggy out so we went back to our room for a quick dip in the pool to cool off. Only one more day left...

Railay Beach, Thailand - Day 1

  Getting to Railay Beach from Bangkok kind of takes forever. We had taken the overnight train from Bangkok to Surat Thai where we had to switch to a bus to take us to Krabi. I slept much better on the train that night. I had put in my earplugs and only woke up a few times. It was great. I woke up around 6 and was ready to go. Raymond was just like you are so wakey! I was just like yeah - I actually slept! So I was all refreshed and ready to go.    We had picked up some banana muffins in Bangkok for breakfast, as well as leftovers from our feast the night before, and the muffins were delicious! We should have gotten more of them than we did. So we got to Surat Thani and had to switch to a bus like I said. It was a bit confusing where we should go and what was going on, but we got on the bus and it took us into Surat Thani Town. That bus was really nice so I thought the trip to Krabi would be great. Only we had to wait a bit and switch buses and the new bus, the one that took us

The First Two Weeks

From In Berlin Hello! So I have been here just over 2 weeks now which is a bit crazy and things are finally coming together. I really like our apartment. Lots of room and it is very quiet as we are a block off the main road. We finally got some furniture last week so the place is not as empty and we actually have chairs to sit on and a bed to sleep in (that is not the noisy air mattress). I even have my craft table set up, but I am still looking for storage for my fabrics and such (the ones I wanted were out of stock). Yesterday I sewed up curtains for the front windows so we can have the privacy blinds (big metal blinds that come down and cover the front windows and are on most of the ground floor windows around town) up and Raymond won't freak out that people can see in.The bedroom/my craft room is pretty much done. The back of the house gets much better light during the day so I set up shop back there to take advantage of it. If I worked in the front rooms I would need the

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn insta
