The second week we went to another island called Koh Phangan, located in the north of Koh Samui. We went there with a traditional thai junk bought and restored by a belgian guy who's lived there for a few years now:





















Jumping from the roof of the junk:






The bar/restaurant of Koh Phangan:










Back on the junk with a french couple we make the acquaintance of early in the trip:

Back at the Baobab, Greg, the boss, is french and the rest of the crew is thai, they're all really cool and nice, the food is good, the cocktails are good (with actual alcohol in them, not like in most of the bars of the island):
















The plane that took us back to France:



I regret not having taken pics of the little towns we went to, Chawneg, Nathon, etc. And also I should have taken pics of some of the hotel staff members, especially Suwannee, my massager, and Lach Mee who works at one of the restaurants and she's got such a cute smile and she's so sweet, I must admit I had a huge crush on her... anyway, as soon as I've got enough money, I'll go back, maybe one week in Bangkok or Phuket and one week in Koh Samui.

Thank you very much. I don't remember whether I've ever posted a pic of me before or not, I'm not sure...

Yeah, I only very recently started posting pics of me on some forums. I don't really like that but it's no more such a big deal as it used to be in the past.

Right!

Aaanyway, had a busy Pentecost. On Sunday, the Evoluon was open, which I visit on any occasion I can (my 5th visit so far in 33 years of trying). Since it's not just plain awesome on the outside, but also on the inside, I made 180 photos, uploaded them to dA to use their software to make a motion book, but that's harder than it looks.

And today was Open Castle day. We have a lot of castles nearby but there's one I had my sight on: in Asten, about 20 km away. Dad and I cycled there - an exhausting journey, but well worth to see the castle ruins. They're allegedly haunted by the ghosts of the women who were tortured in the witch hunt in the late 1500s.


Entry porch of the castle's farm buildings


Ruins of the main building. As you can see, this open day was rather crowded, with questionable music performances and a lot of kids.


Remains of the castle's tower. The old drawbridge was originally to the left of the bridge I was standing on while taking this photo. This tower had a basement that originally held the counterweights of the drawbridge. After the bridge was moved, the counterweights were no longer needed and removed. But the cellars underneath is where the lord of the castle, Bernard van Merode, imprisoned and tortured the women suspected of witchcraft - some didn't make it, one was rescued but was paralyzed - one escaped and related of torture and rape to the clergy, and the church stepped in to halt the persecutions.


The medieval kitchen: the passage to the left was to drain water if the floor had been scrubbed, the smaller niches were for lanterns and candles and alike, and the large niches on the right were ovens.


Looking in from the outside, through the overgrown tower and the front hall


Looking out a window in the overgrown tower


Overgrown tower

One dark cellar. These were very very dark. The wooden pillars were part of a bridge.
