    Down the memory lane: a day trip to Kho Sri Chang on June 14, 2008

    Down the memory lane: a day trip to Kho Sri Chang on June 14, 2008

    Time to do a trip down memory lane.... Even though these images were taken on a day trip almost 3,5 years ago, they still haven't been shown here. For those of you that have also followed my story the last years, will quickly realize that this was a trip undertaken only days before I fell seriously ill in Thailand.

    I went on this daytrip with one of my best Thai friends, and it was a dream for a long time to visit this small island off Chonburi. The island is called Kho Sri Chang, and is located just a short boat ride off the coast.

    Sit back, enjoy the show.

    I do apologize for the low quality of some of the images, but in my defence, they were shot .jpeg and are therefore really hard to edit color-wise. I did two of the shots in RAW, but back then, I had no clue what that meant. I still had the raw-file of two of the images, and they are needless to say, the two images I'm most pleased with.

    Boat ready for departure to Kho Sri Chang....

                I wonder if this is an aircraft carrier from the US.... ?

                I know for sure, that this is not the one belonging to the Royal Thai Navy.

                  Nearing Kho Sri Chang, we met this Thai fishing boat (slightly different in design to those we have in Norway):

                    Finally ashore in Kho Sri Chang, it was time to hire a tri-cycle to do the popular island tour:

                      First stop, was at the beautiful Asdang Bridge (สะพานอัษฎางค์)

                      "His Majesty King Chulalongkorn granted his personal funds to build the bridge. This was an act of merit-making to celebrate the delightful recovery of his son, Prince Asdang Dejavudh from sickness after staying on this island. The royal opening ceremony was performed on August 23rd 1891."
