I was given the best birthday present ever....TIME... on my own.. in Paris!!!. I had no obligations, I woke up whenever I wanted, I ate when I wanted and definitely no dinner preparations, those things I do in my everyday life in Bangkok. I was wandering the streets of Paris, enjoying the museums and the several hours I spent at the cinema. I met up with friends which is always so lovely, but mostly I spent my time home.
Perhaps I have finally found the perfect get-away for a long weekend away from noisy Bangkok? 3 hours drive from Bangkok to Rayong, then just hop on a boat which will take approximately 40-45 minutes to a desert island. There's only one resort and that's it!Nice white beach, lovely water and pretty bamboo huts all along the beach where you can be sheltered from the sun and heat, relax, read a book, or just contemplate the view and sip on a great juice, like my favourite: watermelon ......mmmm.
