    Rainy Sanctuary

    January 5, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ 🌬 25 °C

    After an awesome New Year's party we've headed to The Sanctuary on 4th, a well known yoga/detox resort in Haad Tien. The house is amazing! The weather is not though, it's raining for a week now so there isn't much to do or see. At least I got some work done and am eating healthy food, the restaurant here is vegetarian only (really people? Just don't order meat if you don't eat it) bit they have really good shakes and some cashew-pesto-chedar wraps. I also tried a yoga class and I LOVE it! It's really good for my back, mastering the breathing will take some more time, I need to find this back at home, something without all the veganism bullshit.
    All this rain is causing problems around the island and other southern parts of Thailand. We lose the electricity every day, we saw a bridge getting demolished by a big wave, all of mu clothes are wet and impossiblemto dry them, ... At least it's not -10 degrees like back at home :)
    Last night we also went to Eden for the last time (until next visit, of course), amazing time with wonderful people, no drunk fullmooners, just around 60 people dancing the night away. This is the Eden Garden that I love.
    I just have to mention: one day when I was looking through my wet backpack I found my insurance papers and on them there was a sticker my niece Eva (I just call her a niece because she calls me uncle Marko) gave to me for a good luck (see picture). I swear a sun shined at that moment and made me smile :) Oh I'm gonna give her the biggest hug when I get back home, you just gotta love that girl :)

    And finally, the sun is back! Sorta...

    January 9, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    I woke up and the sun was shining! Yay! Immediately we put all our wet clothes to dry. We had some luck. I also had 2nd class of yoga. I really love it, so peaceful, easy breathing, stretching exercises for my back, pretty girls, what's not to love. After an hour and a half my back was thankful and I felt relaxed. Day was looking good until it started raining again. Argh!
    So a plan had to be made. We didn't know about the weather in the morning, it's not guaranteed that either longtails or any jeep would drive in the morning. Plan: leave the bay today and spent the night in Thong Sala to catch a 9 o'clock 4 hour ferry ride to Surat Thani to catch an airplane to Bangkok. And it was pouring dogs and cats! So me and Rok saw a boat coming to Haad Tien, we ran over a hill to catch it, begging them to wait for 20 minutes to pack and come back. I've never packed so fast! When we were on the boat they demanded 1500 THB for a ride, thieves! And the ride, of course it started raining hard and of course the engine died in the middle of the sea. How they repair those rusty old car engines, not even Nasa engineers could understand that. Finally, all wet (yes, laptop survived) we came to Haad Rin and cought a taxi for Thong Sala. Beers, smokes, vietnamese food, ... And we were off to see our friend Julia, she took us to her house so we could go to ferry in the morning. See, good deeds always pay off :) We covered whole balcony with our wet clothes :) We played chess (haven't played it since high school) and listened to a professional playing piano.
    Off to bed now. Long day tomorrow!
