Planning your trip to Koh Samui

Sarah Marshall has kindly written this guest post for Jamoroki. She is the content writer for Horizon Homes, a property and relocation company based in Koh Samui, Thailand. When she is not busy at work, she can be seen travelling around Thailand, enjoying the sunshine and food.

Koh Samui

A trip to Thailand is not complete without visiting the coastal islands which are rated the best in the world. If there’s one island you cannot miss, it’s Koh Samui. Only 700 kilometres south from Bangkok, Koh Samui is located in the beautiful aquamarine waters of the Chumphorn Archipelago in the Gulf of Thailand.

There are roughly 40,000 people who live on the island, making it feel like a secluded tropical paradise. Samui is the second-largest island in the Archipelago and noted as one of the best for doing outdoor sports. There are many snorkelling trips, boating tours, fishing opportunities, and many other nautical activities. We’ve created a guide on what to plan for your island trip to Samui.

Balancing a love for wildlife with the demand for fossil fuel

In today’s world, when we think about preserving wildlife, it’s rare that you can mix it with the continuous use of oil and gas. The negative effects of fossil fuels on nature have long been publicized in the media. Amongst the most recent was the effects of unused oil and gas, its surrounding environment and most notably the region’s water supplies.

Texas Parks & Wildlife mentioned 4 steps to implement voluntary conservation practices:

1. Start with planning
2. Operations
3. Reclamation
4. Monitoring

There is more general guidance in minimizing impacts of fossil fuel to natural resources in a Texas Parks and Wildlife report. Continue reading Balancing a love for wildlife with the demand for fossil fuel

A big thank you to Steve again for inviting me to write 2 guest posts on his blog ‘Life in Russia’.

Personal views

The views expressed in my ‘Thailand Diaries’ are entirely my own, other than quoted sources, gained from personal observation, experiences, talking to others, living life in different parts of Thailand and spending time elsewhere. I recount true incidents, with a little poetic license, use interesting information both factual and opinionated from reliable sources to help the reader. I have attempted to show that Thailand, just like anywhere else in the world has many good and many bad features. However no amount of reading can fully prepare you for life in a different country, be it Thailand or anywhere else, but it can provide an insight.

If only I had known

‘Hindsight is a wonderful thing’. It’s always 20/20 and the view through the rear–view mirror is always clearer than the windscreen. We’ve all heard that a few times haven’t we! If you want…

Thanks to Steve for inviting me to be a guest contributor on his blog. I hope my readers will find ‘Life in Russia’ an interesting read too.

Introduction

Sometimes when you find a new blog the content and writing just stand out over the crowd. Actually James found me first, then like usual I go exploring to see what the rest of the world is up to. Jamoroki is a great website about Thailand. He writes very candidly about his travels, his home, and paints a picture with words that is quite intriguing. You will find a bit of humor in his work and much more. One of the things that attracted my “one open eye” to his blog was that we both have similar thoughts about cultural barriers. Please join me in welcoming him as the newest guest blogger on “Life in Russia”.

Burning books and treating the masses like mushrooms [keep them in the dark and feed them on bull-shit] will never solve the problems man has bestowed on mother earth. A…
