Lima 2015 Two planes crash during Lima aerobatics

We witnessed today  first hand the crash of the two Indonesian Aircrafts in preparation to the Lima 2015, held on Langkawi. They were going to fly past each other when for some reason or other they grazed the wings. Next thing we saw was a fireball and two parachutes emerging seconds later.

One of the planes crashed near the motorway where you can see lots of onlookers, firebrigades and ambulances.

The second plane, or parts of it crashed into a house where five people were aparently getting ready for an afternoon nap after lunch..they were very shaken but no one was hurt we were told by some locals. So far we understand all the pilots are save.

Hua Hin by Train

It has been quite some time since we had something interesting to write again for our homepage. Living on Langkawi for 3 years now has become a normality and the only trips we did were either to Penang or Satun, mainly just to have a break and do some shopping. (Click on the links for more info about these places)

It was time to travel somewhere different and because friends of ours were in Hua Hin on a holiday and another set of friends live in Bangkok and were willing to meet us there, so we booked the overnight train from Arau (Malaysia) to Hua Hin (Thailand) Here you find how to book tickets

Joined this train in Arau
The easiest way to get from Langkawi to Hua Hin is with the train as the only other alternative would be to fly to Kuala Lumpur then on to Bangkok and take a taxi (cost about 1700THB) or train to Hua Hin.
