Again, letting Mamma take over.....
"Saturday, July 2, 2016. We got up and went to breakfast at a quaint restaurant that has won several awards. We ate a delicious breakfast and had coffee served in a BOWL. Wonderful. Couldn't begin to drink it all! After full bellies we were off for a Thai Foot Massage. Another well spent hour. We laughed, napped and enjoyed "people watching". Back to the hotel, we packed up and headed to the airport to for our trip to the island. We landed on the island of SAMUI. Paradise! Found our new home - BayView! WOW!! Interesting floor plan ... another room with a window between the bathroom and bedroom. Will call this Asian Flair!"
"Sunday, July 3. CULTURE SHOCK! I experienced similar culture shock when joining EmilyAnne on a Honduran mission trip in 2004.
We walked from BayView toward town, up and down hills, humidity and temps high. I was about to fret! EmilyAnne graciously slowed her normal speed, let me rest and filled me with water! We walked through a beach area, window shopped and caught a taxi back to BayView. Relaxed by the pool, enjoyed Happy Hour and took the hotel shuttle to Central Festival for the evening. Shuttle dropped us off at a mall - not our cup of tea. Quickly we found the back street markets, restaurants and yep - another Thai massage. This time it was hot oil.
Precious time Makin' Memories. Always a great adventure with my girl.
