Having now settled into my home here in Phuket, Thailand, I have discovered in just a matter of days why people absolutely fall in love with this place. It’s everything any traveler could want. The weather is beautiful, the views are stunning, the sites are incredible, the culture is new and the people are just fantastic.
I decided to book a place in Rawai, away from the tourist craze that can be found in Pagoda, Phuket. While a few years back I would have loved it there, with the parties, the clubs, the drinking; I now find myself drawn to the opposite. The silence, the peacefulness, the serenity is what I was looking for and most certainly found. My evenings are spent sitting on the patio of my house, drinking ginger tea, reading my book and journaling some. It’s an absolute paradise to recharge yourself in.
During the day, I spend my time exercising, doing yoga, chatting with the lovely friends I have made, drinking coconuts and just focusing on making myself a better person each day than I was the day before.
From the moment one is done their schooling, the chance of having a month to focus solely on themselves and their own health is a rarity. Being where I am, surrounded by nature and natural food, I am making sure not to let it go to waste.
This is an experience I wish I could give to everyone. Stepping back from the world, recharging and then stepping back the world with fresh eyes, new perspective and an open heart is a win for those who experience and those who benefit from it.
