Taratau

03 December 2009
Alison, cloudy, 5 knots NE
After finally leaving Malaysia, we encountered 40 knot winds gusting off the mountains of Langkawi and the Thai island of Taratau. Unfortunately the direction was not favourable once we cleared the gap between the two islands so we had to motor up to the northerly bay to a relatively peaceful anchorage off the national park headquarters.

We previewed the weather situation and decided to stay two nights waiting for the weather to moderate and have been lucky enough to find a wireless link from the small national park resort. We took the bikes ashore and rode 12km to the other side of the island , stopping at creeks for a cool off along the way.

Greece is in the throes of a recession, but they still have the last laugh - never far from the sun, the sea, colour, culture and bags of history. The photos document our Aegean odyssey from May to September 2011

People make the Himalayas a unique place to walk through. From Hindu rice and buffalo farmers in the foothills to the Buddhist villages in the highlands so influenced by Tibetan ancestry and trade over the passes
