We travel to Thailand in 12 days! We are going to the faraway island of Koh Samui for the wedding of one of my college roommates. Emily Halls! (She is marrying Erlo Jones. He is from South Africa and New Zealand so he gets props in my book). My one beef with this marriage is that Emily is marrying into an even easier last name than ‘Halls.’ ‘Jones’ will present NO amount of sacrifice on her part. Just imagine practicing your new last name of ‘van Aswegen’ in front of the mirror for 3 months before your wedding and still not getting it right. That is true committment;)
I am practically giddy with excitement to see my friend and to TRAVEL! I am ready for my business class flight (that Sam has slaved away for in mileage points to provide an upgrade) and I’m ready to get lost in Asia. And get a cheap Thai massage on the beach (from a professional not the side of the street which they do warn about on the web-sites as the street massages may be more than just a ‘massage.’)
Don’t worry I won’t be doing countdown posts until Thailand . That would be boring.
