Koh Phangan Thailand, Malaysia
Koh Phangan, Thailand and Malaysia
For various reasons I stopped blogging after my last post
at the beginning of February. I'd just about completed the first month of the Agama Yoga teacher training course, which included their "first month course". I therefore had two more months of the Teacher Training to complete.
I arrived back in Turkey in June this year (2008) but have now started traveling again, so before re-starting my blog for my new travels in Mexico I thought it was about time to complete the last one. This page will therefore cover the rest of my time on Koh Phangan and my travels in Malaysia. The next post will cover the Thai Islands, Cambodia & Turkey up to early July 2008. I'm not going to say a lot though, mostly I'll let the pictures tell the story. So, here goes..............

And then my friend Sam turned up & things all started to go horribly wrong. I was on a brown rice diet at the time. Eating ONLY brown rice. I was up to day four of seven, but Sam arrived so we had a beer. Then I had a cigarette, started eating cookies & things got progressively worse. After about another week, I decided to give up (or rather postpone until another time) the teacher training course. Now, I really can't blame it on Sam, their were other reasons, perhaps his arriving was just an excuse / catalyst. But everything happens for a reason. A lot of different things happened as a result of that decision & I have learned a lot of valuable lessons! So, more pictures:Sam, Koh Phangan, Thailand
Sam is currently writing a "spiritual" book entitled "Would Be Super-Heroes". He has been travelling now for about three years and writes an interesting blog
about his travels and about life.Yogi Pete, Thailand
Although I stopped the TTC course, I did continue practicing yoga & re-joined the first month course on most days along with Sam. My friend Pebble also joined us from Turkey, but she only managed two or three sessions of yoga. Perhaps she might come along to Mexico though & try again!Mexican-MondaysThailand-Koh-Phangan
