New and old friends in Koh Lanta

Island Time

Koh Lanta, Thailand

In March, I made my way to Koh Lanta, another cozy island on the Andaman coast of Thailand. At this point, I was still quite new to the nomadic movement; I wanted to learn more! So, I attended DNX Camp. With a group of other digital nomads, we spent 10 days together at a resort. I had such a good time and ticked off a few firsts: my first Muay Thai lesson and first time snorkeling. There was also time for coworking, mastermind groups, and more… it didn’t get boring!

It took a whole day to get to the island: from Bangkok to Krabi by plane, a few hours waiting for our minibus and even more hours of driving. There is no bridge between the mainland and Koh Lanta (yet!) so we had to take the ferry. That meant even more waiting… Next time I would take a speed boat from Krabi directly to the island!

Our boat trip with the whole DNX crew. Such a fun day!

The 10 days at the DNX Camp were over so fast, but I stayed at Koh Lanta a few days more to meet some friends from Germany who were travelling. One morning, we drove with our scooters to the other side of the island to watch the sunrise. It was magical and I shot some of my favorite photos there!
