As you maybe know South Africa is hosting the World Cup Soccer this year in June. Dirk is a lucky guy, he has 9 tickets and is going to 9 different stadiums all over South Africa. June/July and half August, the girls have winter break.... 10 weeks off from school, so that would mean. Me and the girls are pretty much home alone, while Dirk is going to all his soccer games, which I am very happy for him to be able to do this. Since it is a once in a life time event, living in a country that is hosting the WC. So I let him go to all these games.... under 1 condition! ;-) and you might know me by now, my conditions are good ;-)
The condition is... that me and the girls are going to Thailand for 8 weeks/2 months.... yes you read it correct!! We are going to Koh Samui, I've rented a house on the beach and we are going to enjoy ourselves!
While SA is going crazy about this soccer I want some peace and ZEN in my life, getting some massages on the beach, eating FAB Thai food, doing some cooking classes here and there, checking out the latest spa treatments, reading my books on my new KINDLE that is coming soon!! We will have a blast!
The girls will be introduced again to Thai culture, I am even going to send them to school in the mornings so they can have some basic Thai language, seeing how children live in Thailand and being part of it. Going to visit some temples, introducing them to their mother land... how great is that!! They are old enough now to soak it all in and more important; REMEMBER it! The last time we were in Thailand for our sabbatical of 3 months, the girls were only 3,5 years old, so they don't remember much... but this time they will. And I will MAKE it MAGIC for them!!
So this is the place where we will be staying on Koh Samui, one of the bigger touristy islands in Thailand at a beach called Bang Po, a nice tranquil beach, not too touristy and away from all the hustle and bustle but close enough since I am also renting a car to go places!!
Baan Laem Noi is a small resort with only 7 bungalows, a pool and direct on the beach. We will have the house in the middle.
And this is how it looks like, cute or what? For 6 weeks I will be here with the girls, and my dad is coming to visit for 2 weeks. Then after soccer season is over, Dirk will join us for 3-4 days before we are heading out to explore the rest of Thailand for another 2 weeks.
So while Dirk is having the time of his life in SA, me and the girls are having the time of our lives in our beloved Thailand!! We all have a great deal!!
So if you are in Thailand during June and July, give me shout and we can meet!! I would LOVE that!!
Have a Fabulous Friday!!
