Countdown to Samui . . . . . Just for fun.

Hi Guys

As the Countdown thread is always a popular stop, chat and catch up place, here is one breaking a little with tradition that isn't specific to a year and one that we can hopefully make endless.

Just about to leave Samui but will be back on good friday in April, so not too long to wait to return, again.

Have fun and happy countdown.

Matt

PS: Thanks to TravellingMitch for the great 2 part 2013 threads, Mossy for the magnificent 2012 countdown thread, and Rob for the brilliant 2011 thread

Hi Matt,

You must do 2 or 3 trips a year, how do you manage all the time off? Do you get to go for work?

The pointy end, you lucky man! I always imagine that when they close the curtains to cattle class, a mirror ball drops down, the hosties strip into swimwear and it's just a giant party that I'm not invited to.

Oh and this time next week, I will be mid air on my way to Samui, so 7 days to go!!!!!!!

Hey Andrew,

3 trips a year the last few years, combination of timimg A/L around public holidays, some long service leave and the odd short wedgie trip to tie me over :)

I like that thinking, will let you know if that happens!!!!!

Have a great trip next week, I'm jealous.

LOL Andrew C.

Thanks Matt, very jealous of your frequent flying to Samui!

2 sleeps - well one really as the last night is up at 3am to the airport so why bother sleeping.

happy countdown to all :)
