Leaving on a jet plane …

Don Det April 5, 2010

After 16 hours if travel time we arrived to the island of Don Det. It was so hot and we were exhausted. We hiked around the island to find a place to stay. Things were far pricier than what lonely planet had told us but we found a nice bungalow and worked out a deal with the owner.

We took the day to rest and relax and later met up with our friend Bryan who is also on this island and watched the sunset and had some dinner by the river. We met some guys from Australia and ended up chilling riverside with a large group of people singing songs and listening to the one ozzy guy play his guitar. It was a pretty hilarious night. It’s funny how so many people from all over the world can come together over music. Despite the island shutting down shops and bars by 1030 we let the music and serenity of the island take over and it ended up being a pretty late night.

Tomorrow our plan is to rent bikes and head to the nearby waterfall (yes this one is actually in biking distance) so hopefully we can get an early start to the day to beat the insane heat.

We rented bikes and made the trek through the heat to the waterfall. It was pretty sweet and we even went for a dip in one of the side pools. At night we went to bed early after the sunset. We decided to spend another night relaxing on the island so we booked our bus ticket for Cambodia for the 8 th.

Our last day we had big plans to rent bikes and head over to the nearby island to see some dolphins but the heat got the best of us so instead we spent the day reading and relaxing and preparing for our trip to Cambodia.
