Muy bien! Felicitaciones!
Qué alegría comenzar un nuevo viaje, no?

La semana pasada estuve en Tailandia, más específicamente en Koh Samui, de ahí fui a Koh Nang Yuan (una pequeña islita al lado de Koh Tao), y de ahí a Koh Phi Phi Don y Koh Phi Phi Leh, vía Phuket.

El tránsito desde Japón a las islas lo hice en Bangkok, pero sin parada, sólo escala y alguna que otra merienda en el aeropuerto :P

Que disfruten a full su viaje!

Abrazos
