A warm hello from the beautiful paradise of Kao Tao! It has been an insane week here at Thailand. I knew since the moment I got out of the airport that coming here was the right decision, and that this holiday would be an unforgettable one. Our cabbie took us to a hotel on the shores of Kao Tao.
The real adventure was yet to begin.
Not one to procrastinate, I jumped at the chance to sunbathe. I am now sitting under an umbrella and watching the picturesque view in front of us. Seas of turquoise expand, merging into the blue skies at a point – so soothing for my eyes to see.
The orange sun is now making its dramatic exit, bleeding into the water. To make the view picture perfect, the waves crash repeatedly onto the sand, spraying droplets of water on me.
Probably the best feature of Thailand for a person like me is the food. At every meal they serve us different meat, each better than the last. The standout, definitely, is the chicken sautéed with barbecue sauce, which is ambrosial. To accompany that, they serve us a different cocktail with each main course. This has been on my bucket list from a long time, and it is really worth the wait.
Rainforest, tropical islands, coconut trees, mountains, coral reefs – it is really amazing how many things a country as small as Thailand can fit into its land, and how splendid it looks, all in all.
