Even something as simple as how you go to the bathroom can completely change the instant you arrive on foreign soil.

I have been taking a Korean cooking class for the past few weeks and I love it! Our teacher, Sunok, is so sweet and she’s an amazing cook. I’ve also been having a great time with the other wives that take the class.

Holy heck! I do not know what to say. I spent my first few days on a small island about 40 minutes away by speedboat and today I’m meeting my handsome Australian back on the mainland at The Shore at Katathani Beach Villas on Kata Noi Beach in Phuket, Thailand. Wow, that’s a mouthful!
I am in love with this place. I’ve already seen an elephant and check out our room view. I’m absolutely speechless.
