Has a week gone by this quickly? Currently I’m back in Bangkok spending my last few days with my NYC bestie Zoe and her Bangkok-based boyfriend Tom, and it’s wonderful. However, the earlier part of the week was spent in Koh Tao having one of the most tumultuous weeks of my travels (life?) thanks to an unscrupulous landlord, horrible weather, and the worst timing possible. I’m not ready to write about it yet, but you can look forward to an extremely illegible with rage post coming your way soon!

As for Photo of the Week, our three options were all taken on one sunny beautiful day when we took a longtail trip all the way around Koh Tao island. It was nice to decompress and show Zoe and my sister Olivia some of the happy sides of island living (as opposed to the torrential downpour and general lawlessness they had been observing so far).

I haven’t found a new polling plug-in yet that doesn’t eat my blog theme, so please leave your vote in the comments!

Next week I’ll be posting the Photo of the Week from Koh Tao and it will be back to just Mark and me. I’ve said goodbye to all but one of my out-of-town family and friends and I simultaneously feel like I’ve been hosting for months and already feeling homesick for them again. I’ve been so lucky to have them here.

      Whoops, I guess I should have captioned… that’s my sister! Sometimes people think we are twins, though 🙂 I’ll pass along your compliment!

    I love all three photos, and am feeling sad that I left one week before this stunning weather hit!

      Don’t be too jealous… it was more of the same. Three days of torrential downpour (much worse than when you were here!) followed by three days of sun. The weather just can’t make up its mind!

      Thanks for chiming in! I love that picture too… it’s what I picture Thailand like in my head.

    My vote goes to number 2 (your sister?) among the fishes.

    No 3, while colourful, lacks a focus of interest.

    And No 1 has only the prow of the boat in sharp focus.

    JMHO.

      It seems to be that the sister photo is winning! She will be very pleased to hear so 🙂

      Thanks Sam! I’m obsessed with the longtail boats… I’m constantly snapping photos of them!

    Sorry to hear about your time in Kho Tao. I vote for the long tail boat photo. I took a lot of those in Koh Ngai and it brings back awesome memories.
