The other day, he shared this quote with me.
I think it fairly summarizes how I feel right now.
“What we want out of a vacation changes as we age. It changes from vacation to vacation. There was a time when it was all about culture for me. My idea of a real break was to stay in museums until my legs ached and then go stand in line to get tickets for an opera or a play. Later I became a disciple of relaxation and looked for words like beach and massage when making my plans. I found those little paper umbrellas that balanced on the side of rum drinks to be deeply charming then. Now I strive for transcendent invisibility and the chance to accomplish the things I can’t get done at home. But as I pack up my room at the Hotel Bel-Air, I think the best vacation is the one that relieves me of my own life for a while and then makes me long for it again.” – Ann Patchett
One more wonderful yoga class, one more long bus ride to Bangkok, two final travel days, and several flights and then I’ll be home.
All of these images are from just one of the many boat rides this summer –> this particular trip was the one from Ao Nang to Railay.
