Not much sightseeing this weekend! Luckily we were able to enjoy a nice breakfast in beautiful Woodend.
Our savings account is getting drained with all the money being spent at our new built house. This is one of the reasons that we don’t do as many, but also relatively cheap trips at this moment. Ah well, finally a good opportunity to do some more sightseeing locally, which we think is great and everyone should do this once in a while.
This Saturday, a beautiful winter’s day we did visit the Old Castemaine Goal where we did do the guided tour for $10 p.p., which we think is money well spent. For those who want to go as a family, kids under 15 years of age are free.
We did have another relaxing day which we did enjoy even more since our holiday had almost come to an end. We are normally not the kind of people who do so little sightseeing during a holiday but this time it was simply needed. We are both busy at work with quite a few weekends were we need to work as well, 7 day weeks are a killer. Chantal has roughly 1 year left to finish her part-time Master’s degree and on top of that we will be moving into our new home which is currently under construction. So as you can see crazy times ahead for us.
All of this is the reason that we having this type of holiday and we must admit, we love it! Great thing is since we booked this so early, we managed to get a really good deal via expedia, the few other Aussies we spoke to all paid more! Bonus! A well time to enjoy the pool one more time and after that last night dinner in a nice restaurant.
Here we come! Today we did explore Koh Samui by scooter and not just an ordinary scooter, no it was a real Vespa.
In the beautiful waters surrounding Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan. The sun was harsh so we had to protect ourselves well, but that did not stop us! We had an awesome day in and on the water. We are really happy that we booked a organised snorkeling tour and enjoyed every single moment. A big plus is traveling in off peak season, not many tourists and lower prices!
