Koh Samui, Thailand
Merry Christmas everyone! I’m writing this as I watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and stare at the ocean. I’ve been on Koh Samui for a few days now and have managed to find a place to rent for the month. The short term rental market is very thin right now as it is the peak season. I ended up getting a room for the month for 24,000 baht, which is around $750 for the month.
I also signed up for a month of kickboxing classes and start tomorrow and that should be interesting. I’m going to take one 2 hour class each evening and then look into scuba diving in the mornings. I have yet to pick a dive shop but I should be able to narrow that down soon.
As for the rest of my time so far I have been eating far too many spring rolls and gotten a couple of Thai massages. The massages were far more painful then I remember as they walked on me and bent me into positions I am not flexible enough for. Apparently my calves were extremely tight from the Camino and she took no mercy as she kneaded them with her elbows. I almost couldn’t take it. That being said the next day I felt much better.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!!
