Frisbees, Food, and Fun in Koh Samui

The first few days in Koh Samui were a let down. Strong winds, pouring rain and thick grey clouds plagued the island. "Take me back to beautiful Koh Tao," I whined. We moped around indoors and hoped the weather would improve. It didn't. On the third day, we were itching to go outside and not let the poor weather ruin our dwindling time in Thailand. The bf and I decided to try something we've both never done before: frisbee golf!



Nestled deep in thick jungle and residential houses, Samui Disc Golf is a fun nine-hole course for both beginners and advanced players.


Having played golf my entire life, I thought this was going to be a piece of cake. Oh boy, was I wrong.




Throwing a frisbee with a splint on proved to be difficult. Even still, I didn't let it get in the way of having fun!

I bet the boyfriend I could kick his ass. He didn't think so. We agreed that the loser buys dinner. It was on!






We were neck and neck after the first few holes. The pressure was intense.





At the end of the ninth hole, we tallied up the scores.


I won by three strokes! Victory was mine...for a short while. We played a second round and Marc came back with a vengeance. I got my ass whooped. :( Oh well, at least I won a free dinner!




That evening, we headed to the local street food market for some tasty eats.




This place was a Thai food lover's dream! Vendors sold pad thai, a wide selection of curries, fresh seafood, satay, noodle soup, sticky rice, exotic fruits and much more. It was so hard to choose what to eat!



I started my feast with a refreshing passionfruit smoothie and veggie samosas. I am obsessed with samosas right now. Nothing beats it's flaky crust, smooth potato filling and curry spices.

After, it was time for the main course: chicken satay!



I loaded those skewers up with peanut sauce and went to town.


That is the look of a very satisfied foodie!

We ate to our hearts content and fell into a sleep induced food coma shortly after. The next day, we woke up and couldn't believe our eyes.


The sky was clear and the sun was out. Finally! We made a beeline to the beach to make the most of our final day in Thailand.





Lamai Beach was perfection. The smooth white sand glimmered in the sunlight and crystal clear waters stretched out to eternity.  Lapping waves washed over me while I admired the tropical scenery one last time.

I’m a Canadian girl on a quest to step foot in every continent before I’m 30. You’ll most likely find me chowing down on Japanese ramen, partying at a music festival, hiking to the top of a scenic lookout, cuddling with cats, or chilling out at the beach. I’ve visited over 60 countries so far and hope to inspire you to do the same.
