Well those last few months flew by . . . literally, with a lot of flying!
The month prior to my month-long Thailand escapade, I was in California (twice), New York & Texas. Flew out of LA on my way over the pond, and as most of you know, I made a jaunt to Sri Lanka while I was over there. (See my previous blog post for details.) That contributed to the flying.
Not to mention while I was living in Thailand, I was living an Island life. Island living requires a lot of extra steps in traveling. Steps that include, mopeds, boats, buses, taxis, flights, flights, and flights.
I loved everything! The colors, people, water, sunsets, food, and the hammock lifestyle. Saw new countries, learned new languages, and had new experiences. Many new ways of experiencing life. I stood in my fear of scuba diving - #befuckingfearless - and it was awe-inspiring!! Made new friends, made it out of Thailand with a few crazy Thailand stories, and without getting Dengue Fever; aka the break-bone fever . . . because you feel like your bones are breaking.
Let's see. I learned some REALLY good yoga. Saw a tantric community lifestyle, and only understood half of what I heard or saw. I taught moped lessons to foreigners that have never driven a moped or motorbike. That should be funny for those of you that know me & my "excellent driving skills." And, I explored. A LOT! Everyday was a new adventure of finding the clearest water, the next most beautiful beach, the yummiest and most inexpensive fresh fruit juice, the next best Thai massage ($11(US) for an hour!!), and going to sleep without Dengue. ;)
I saw beautiful monkeys, elephants, birds & fish. Said "Sa wat dee kha" (hello) and "khaawp khoon kha" (thank you) all-day-every-day. Had very little alcohol consumption - an occasional cold beer . . . . you are able to order frou frou drinks for days, and there is no good wine, anywhere! Whatsapp & Viber were my main forms of communication with loved ones afar. (Both free apps that allow you to text, call & video chat internationally, for free.)
The seashell hunt was on! I even made my friend Sue a seashell art installment for her bungalow. And, a big thank you to Susan for opening her home, her heart and her life in Thailand up to me while I was visiting. "One's destination is never a place, but a new way of experiencing life."
I am now back stateside. Landed at LAX and back to AZ with Shvivee!
