Hey loves! I just had to say goodbye to my family this morning. I’m going to miss them so much, especially my Nephew, Ja. I get that sicky feeling in my stomach that makes me want to be sick and cry at the same time. I wish I didn’t have to leave it so long until I see them again because so much can happen in a year but I’m definitely going to return again next year. I plan on learning Thai as soon as I get home! Yesterday we were blessed by all the locals who tied pieces of string around our wrists and wished us a safe journey and good luck. We have to wait for the pieces of string to come off naturally, which would mean all the bad spirits have left our bodies. Now, we are on our way to the airport to fly to Phuket for sea, sand and sun! Speak again soon, L.
