Ko Jum

April 23- May 2  We headed south to the small Thai island of Koh Jum, population 1500, to feel the ocean breeze and escape the intense heat in Chiang Mai.  Our friend Siofra's cousin, Marnie, owns an incredible eco resort there and set us up,  We had a beautiful villa right on the beach in one of the most laid back-chilled places Scott and I have ever been.  We soaked sun, swam, took naps, did some school work, rode bikes into the village, snorkeled, found crabs, insects and lizards, walked the beach, played a lot of cards, and generally had the best time ever.
