Remember way back when, we went to Thailand. We had a week in Ko Lanta, a perfect little island and a week in Bangkok. It was the first beach vacation Ben and I had ever taken together and it was perfect. Slow paced, with a lot of reading, swimming in the Andaman Sea, tasting a wide-variety of the fabulous Thai cuisine at our eco-resort, Hotel Narima and enjoying refreshing coconut water and tropical cocktails in the beach-side bar. We managed to rally for a day-long adventure of kayaking, seeing a cute little white-sandy beach Bu Bu Island and feeding some very greedy monkeys. We went for a couple of runs along the coastal road and then ate our weight in fresh pineapple and papaya. Ben practiced his Thai with the young, extremely efficient staff of the Narima. We spent our evenings in our beach view bungalow reading aloud- The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach. We were so relaxed by the time we headed to Bangkok, it took a few days to get up to speed. In retrospect, if it had been possible, we would have started in Bangkok and ended on the beach. Next time!
Tomorrow- some photos from Bangkok- man it was HOT and HUMID!
GOODBYE… So sad to be gone from Koh Lanta. #thailand #beach
We are gone- outta here and not to be heard from again… or at least for 9 days- one whole blogger week.
As you read this, Ben and I should be in Thailand enjoying our adventure in South East Asia.
We have decided to be tech-free (except for our cameras) for the next nine days, I feel I have become a bit too hooked on spying on people via Instagram- did you know Kim Kardashian has six million followers? That is insane- I am not one of them. We will only be back online when we arrive in Bangkok. We are armed with books, magazines, UNO and Pass the Pigs, good old-fashion fun.
We promise to take a lot of photos.
So until then, I have queued some posts for next week. Enjoy!
*For those of you who have not seen 30 Rock recently- this is featured in an episode. Very funny.
