Days by the Water

I can't even remember how it was like to post weekly, it feels like such a long time ago. I have been away. I have never been busier, and yet I've strangely never been this content. You know how after a long day of swimming and playing and laying out under the hot sun, you have such a good night's sleep after. You fall asleep easy and you feel properly and truly well rested come morning. It's the work equivalent I suppose.

So I think what prompted this post was my recent trip to Phuket. It's funny, it's like the game, 'one is not like all the others'. It felt like my first southeast asian holiday although it wasn't really. But after the grand Europe trips and multi city tours, this felt uncomplicated and odd. The new approach to travelling will take some getting used to. It will be hard.

But back to Phuket. I swam, I baked, well I burnt and I had a joyous five days. My first true break in awhile. And I hope there will be many more pleasant little trips to look forward to, unexpected destinations to uncover and a challenging but not impossible path to navigate. And I certainly hope to be back here again more often.

In the meantime, with love.
