So, after nearly six months of preparation and planning (which is pretty much unheard of for us), Jeremy and I are off to Thailand in just a few short hours. Hooray!
I’ve been so busy the past few weeks that I’ve hardly had time to be excited about this trip. But now my work is done, I’m (mostly) packed, our flights and hotels are booked and confirmed, and all that’s left to do is pick out a book or two, lock up the house, and take off.
We’ll be flying in style on Emirates via Dubai to Bangkok, where we’ll have just one full day to wander around before hopping on another plane and then a ferry to the island of Koh Tao, where our friends Scott and Cheryl will be tying the knot on the beach at the Charm Churee resort.
There’s so much I’m looking forward to on this trip, which will be my first to an Asian country: the food, of course; the warm weather and beaches, though it looks like we may be in for thunderstorms most of the week; the new sights and sounds; the chance to kick back and do absolutely no work whatsoever; and the opportunity to see a lot of the friends I met in Australia, who will all be there for the wedding.
It’s going to be a rollicking good time, I think!
