If your usual mode of transportation is moped or a motor bike then I don’t have to tell you how much fun it is! For those of you who have not yet tried, or only been the passenger, or only test drove one, then it’s time to try again. I’m not encouraging you to jump on a busy highway, but to take yourself to an island like Pha Ngan, Thailand and give it a go. Easier said then done. For only seven dollars we rented a motor bike to explore the north side of the island knowing very well we had no idea what we were doing. When we asked the sweet owner of the bike to actually show us how it works fear set in her eyes. We knew we would pick up on it quickly but the reminder to stay to the left of the road was much needed for the both of us. What a great feeling, the open road, the wind hitting my helmet, going into the unknown, all with the comfort of bring on a small island and therefore limiting the possibility of getting lost. We came upon a park with an outdoor gym, a Chinese temple, and a quint lunch spot, with plenty of stories in between. With our moped adventure I can confidently say we saw the island of Koh Pha Ngan.
