Sept 28th

Beaches and pool and sun and fun!

What more can you ask for from a day in paradise?  Two kindles (oh, how did I live without one for so long?) and two beach buddies (aka Zack and Alena) hung out today – first at the jacuzzi pool (no, public health friends, I did not get in the pool) and then second at the beach in comfortable lounge chairs overlooking a calm and peaceful blue green sea.

And now it’s time to plan some more of this big adventure!  We have tickets on the night train – something I have always wanted to do!  Although it’s probably not quite as glamorous as I have made it out to be in my mind.  Now it’s just a matter of figuring out how to get to the other side of the island to catch a ferry to Don Sak, then get a ride from there to the train station just north of Surat Thani, without getting swindled.  Then we’re in Bangkok on October 2nd in the very early hours of the morning.

And I might just look for a Zumba class while I’m there to get a fix.  I tried to dance in the “workout room” aka room with an old tread mill and some random weights in kilos, but since it’s at the top of a hill everyone can see you and the people in the resturant and waitstaff were giving me funny looks.  Next time I’ll just invite them in for an impromptu Zumba class :P

Until then, just enjoying this life of freedom and adventure!

***Special shout out to all of my Zumba friends!  Especially the birthday girl Stefanie who joined the extra special new decade this week!  Happiest birthday month to you!!!

XOXO
