This Isn't an Island



I'm still traveling with my new British friends, Carlien and Steph, through Thailand. After completing our Advanced Diving course, we hopped a night boat to Sura Thani, then a bus to Krabi Town, and finally a long boat to Railey Beach. It's another beautiful Thai beach where we've been completely lazy. The water is warmer than I've ever experienced. Warmer than the showers I took in Ko Tao. I've had a few moments where I've just felt so blessed to be able to stand in the ocean and look at the karsts rising from the palm trees... thunder booming in the background.

A moment ago I watched a nine-year-old Thai kid juggle fire in a bar while Jackass 2 played on a big screen in the background. I'm definitely in a tourist zone. White people fill the restaurants, shops, bars, and beaches. But we support this area. 18 countries traversed in five or so months. You'll understand the journey, you'll envy it, you'll think it's a waste of time. It doesn't matter because I'm living. I'm appreciating our existence on this planet.

It's overwhelming. It's beautiful. It's life.

    Are you going to string your vid clips into a travelogue?
