Chilling in Thailand

Yeah, so, things have been quiet around here, haven’t they?  We are SO busy in Thailand that there just hasn’t been any time to update the blog.

You know, we spend hours and hours each day lounging by our hotel pool, surfing the internet and reading our Nook books.  No time to write a blog update while we do that.

We’ve spent some time snorkeling (both of us) and scuba diving (Robert) in crystal clear waters teeming with fish, lobsters, sea urchins, star fish, cuttlefish, and even a poisonous sea snake here and there.  Robert even managed to get his advanced open water certificate.  No time to write a blog update while we do that.


We’ve had a picnic on a beach inhabited by lizards.  No time to write a blog update while we do that.


We also spend an hour or so each night watching an amazing sunset, while drinking gin tonic (Robert – and, no, that is not a typo as nobody says the “and” here) or wine (me).  No time to write a blog update while we do that.


And, once the sun sets, it is off for delicious Thai food, or pretty decent pizza, or seafood pulled out of the ocean that very day.  Yep, no time to write a blog update while we do that.


And, after dinner, we stop and have a Nutella pancake or some “fried” ice cream.  Fried ice cream means flash freezing some ice cream batter and toppings (in the case of the photo below, Oreos) on what I can only assume is a piece of metal over a block of dry ice, then scraping the frozen ice cream into tubes.  Yum.  No time to write a blog update while we do that.


So, bottom line, we’ve just been too damn busy to update this blog, even though we have done absolutely nothing!

She is a voracious reader of young adult dystopian fiction and watches far too much bad tv. She loves pretty much anything to do with zombies, and doesn’t think there is anything weird about setting an alarm at 6 am on a weekend to stumble to a pub to watch her beloved Chelsea boys. Robert has had many professions, including a chef, a salesman, an IT guy and most recently, a stay at home dog dad. He speaks Italian and hopes to learn Spanish on this trip. He loves nothing more than a day spent sailing, hopes to do more scuba diving, and rues the day he introduced Lisa to football (i.e., soccer).
