Catching up!

I’ve received an unusual amount of blog hits over the last week! I don’t really know why this is happening, but I thought maybe some of you were looking for a vacation update?! If so, I will try and humor you with some new information..

The truth is, I haven’t felt like writing about Thailand. Some of my trip was really amazing and some of it wasn’t. However, I do not feel that my blog is an appropriate place to divulge my entire Thailand story!

What I have decided to share, are some wonderful snippets that have graced my mind since returning to Korea. I think the following memories will make me smile forever..

  1. One early morning in Phuket, I sat on the beach and drank fresh coconut milk. The simplicity of the moment was incredibly satisfying.
  2. Watching wishing lanterns float up and blend in with the stars.
  3. In Ko Pi Pi Don, I went snorkeling for the first time. I was so shocked by the aquatic beauty, that I gasped and inhaled a mouthful of sea water.
  4. On a day tour, we visited a secluded little island to enjoy some more snorkeling. I have never been anywhere more enchanting or tranquil. I find myself thinking of this place when I’m in a classroom full of crazy children.
  5. While elephant trekking (which I didn’t enjoy), I watched golden leaves rustle in the wind. I felt like I was the only one in the world who had witnessed this magical moment, and I enjoyed the privacy.
  6. Feeding monkeys at Suwankuha Temple was extremely entertaining. I was both nervous and fascinated by the hungry little creatures.
  7. One evening, my friend and I found an extremely large and hairy spider in our guest house. After pulverizing the critter, we slept with the light on.
  8. On my last day in Krabi, I treated myself to an aloe vera message. It was both delightful and a cheap.
  9. I was lucky enough to make some interesting new friends. The gift that keeps on giving!
  10. I watched a little of the olympic games with a Korean cab driver on the way home. I taught him how to say, “ gold, silver and bronze.” We had a lot of fun!

Hope this satisfies your curious minds and thanks for checking in. :)

  1. I love these pictures that you take!

    When we were in Vietnam for Christmas, we watched them light big lanterns like the one in the picture you have and send them up over the ocean. I loved it, too. It brought tears to my eyes.

    I miss you!
