One of the advantages of being disorganized is that one is always having surprising discoveries. ― A.A. Milne
October was a month of discoveries. When we moved here about two years ago we were disappointed that transportation was challenging. In other words, there weren’t any Grab cars. But with the surge of food delivery options and #stayathome, Grab transport finally became a viable option in Rayong. Yeaaa!
And with Thailand’s vegetarian festival, came the additional discovery of local and Western plant-based meat products available at the grocers. [And this month we celebrated our one year veganniversary, too.]
I also learned that my favorite British panel show, Taskmaster, decided to upload their latest series on YouTube for free. Now, they have been sharing their previous nine series on YT, but that was certainly no indication that they would post their newest for everyone around the world regardless of citizenship. Thank you, guys!
As you can see, we went to the beach, but not really because we found Pattaya depressing and never got in the water. We had been avoiding this infamous city of sleaze but we figured now was a good time to go, no crazy crowds, deeply discounted hotels, but nahhh. It’s not for us.
I couldn’t tell which was sadder, the empty bars and closed businesses or the incredible skyscrapers being built despite the devastated economy. It was one of those short getaways that I wished we’d never taken, but I suppose we can say we did it. Have you ever regretted a trip?
But not all was lost, I finally worked up the nerve to get a haircut. And I bought a new phone, replacing my old Samsung for a Xiaomi. I’m still getting used to it, keeping work related apps on the old one, so I’m one of those with two phones. GAH!
