Turning Thai

Seaflower Bungalows. Standing on my parent's bungalow veranda, looking toward the palm thatched restaurant.

Entry penned on January 20th, 2017:

Early last week Wednesday morning I was contemplating my last breakfast at Seaflower Bungalows. Bananas in warm coconut cream on brown rice or Red Curry soup with rice noodles? What to choose, what to choose? I went for the Red Curry soup as per usual and Lise, the owner of Seaflower told me I was turning Thai. I took that as a compliment and enjoyed every spoonful of that bowl.

I am home from yet another journey away from this continent I call home. Three weeks in Thailand with my loved ones was good for the soul. Iain and I had a hoot exploring new cities from the back of tuktuks, motorbikes, bicycles and truck taxis. I ate like a queen and drank like a sailor. I hauled my Kiev across the globe and left my smart phone at home. That was the best decision I could have made to begin a new journey.
