Most people don't understand why I wouldn't want to go to Thailand(not my style) or why I'm nervous for the trip(not scared of flying) because I'm actually apprehensive about being cooped up in a plane for a zillion hours, then living with three others in a 900 square foot suite at The Charm Resort. I'm used to being BY MYSELF, unless the cat counts. Speaking of Mari, she isn't adjusting well so far to my parents':
Many people were shocked that I could pack ALL my gear in one smallish suitcase and a back pack. I feel like this is a lot! (especially for a hellaciously hot climate!) My therapist has predicted that I'll probably wear a swimsuit and cover up 80% of the time anyway. What do you think? Predictions? I'm not sure how much or if I'll blog from Phuket; I'm just taking my iPhone and have never tried to write posts on that small an interface. I'm 100% sure that I'll want to tell about my/our adventures, frustrations, funny moments, etc. but it might be too hard on a smartphone!
I went on a walk on the Tacoma Waterfront with Len, and when we saw this, he claimed it was a sign that I would go parasailing in Thailand. I'm comfortable enough with him to give him the evil eye and call BS on that. However, I may try some new activities or even a different drink or two. I'm not the most adventurous person, yet I seem to end up in these far away places, like Korea and Thailand. Bon Voyage to me, and I'll see you all on the flip side, inshallah.
