I've lived out of a suitcase for 3 months and out of a carry-on suitcase for one month. I less of a master packer and more of excellent shover-of-stuff into nooks and crannies. Still, I underestimated as usual and thought that packing for a one week tropical getaway would a piece of cake.
I've been testing out this new and improved Blogger app and it's been a mixed review so far. It's definitely improved with its photo posting abilities but it's also failed to automatically save a post I'd nearly finished. /annoyed
Anyways, we've been lucky with the weather forecasts so far but today is a day for lounging about our bungalow. It's much too grey to wander far from room service.
By the wonders of technology, I'm writing this while drinking watermelon juice and overlooking a private bay on the island of Koh Tao, Thailand. I can officially say,"I'm on holiday!!!" (3 exclamation marks necessary)
The past week has been a blur; feeling like both the longest and the shortest week "ever," I've been hustlin' to do last minute errands and work hand-over before catching our midnight flight.
Almost 16 hours later, we made it to our bungalow in Koh Tao:
First order of business? FOOD! I love Thai food and have yet to find a satisfactory restaurant in Tokyo so I immediately ordered a few of my favorite things for dinner:
1. Young fresh coconut
2. Tom kha soup
3. Green curry
4. Fried fish
All were everything I could have hoped for: delicious.
I've been reminded of why I miss SEA! Now it's time for me to run off and find a dive center for tomorrow and more food to devour. Bye for now!
