17 Mar Transition from Thailand to India

Thank you to Nora, The Professional Hobo for including us in her series: “A Week in the Life!” We are honored to be nomads on her site.

We wrote about a week when we were leaving Thailand after a month and beginning our three month stay in India. The week included a broken bus, a lovely beach, terrible traffic and exploring Kolkata.

Day 1: Monday

10am: Our fifth morning on the gorgeous Thai Island, Koh Samed, we continued our pattern of lazy beach days. We woke up late, wandered on the beach to Tok’s restaurant and ate some delicious Thai food such as Pad Sei Ew (Thai Noodles) or Panang Gai (Red Curry Chicken). George and I often shared two delicious dishes so we could savor a larger variety of Thai cuisine. After a walk on the beach, we then frolicked in the water and then walked along the beach again.

1pm: We stopped by the pier to buy tickets to return to Bangkok on Wednesday. We tried to buy the tickets yesterday but realized we were unsure of the date of our flight to India.

We typically do not plan even a few days in advance but recently, with high season was upon us, we had not gotten our first choice of hotel or transport prompting us to book ahead more often.

And we still haven’t forgotten our experience on Koh Samed four years ago when we were forced to spend a night under the stars at the Gekko Bar due to lack of accommodation; absolutely no rooms, tents or other lodging options were available during that three-day holiday weekend when a Full Moon party was in full swing.

Day 2: Tuesday

10am: Keeping our website going requires time nearly every day. On the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month, I send out our newsletter sharing our travels. I also enjoy responding to comments posted on our site.
