We’re looking at a long weekend starting tomorrow here in the Land of (Fake) Smiles. Truth be told, that doesn’t really affect me in the least. After all, my days are pretty much the same every day – a constant holiday or work day, depending on how you look at it. But at least, the boyfriend gets a few much-needed days off.
Naturally, we’re taking advantage of the holiday. Tonight, we’re off to Koh Chang on the eastern gulf of Thailand, and we should get there before sunrise. The last time we were there was back in December when it was nice and sunny. Presently, however, it’s the middle of the monsoon season, so there’s probably going to be some rain. I hope there won’t be too much of it, though. We haven’t been to the beach since we went to Krabi in April, and I’m now looking considerably pale. I could really use the sunshine.
I would probably look forward to the trip even more if I didn’t have to work half the time, but, hey, at least I’m on a lovely island with a fantastic beach. Besides, working on the beach is a hell of a lot better than working cross-legged on the couch and getting cramped knees.
(Oh, and I can’t wait to wear my bikinis again, especially now that I’ve lost some weight. Again. If you want to know how I did it, click here.)
In any case, I’ll be back on Sunday, hopefully tanned, relaxed, and with considerably cheerful – and browner – knees.
