A Carefree Getaway

Monday, June 11th, 2007

I’m a control freak and I can’t do things or go places without knowing the full picture ahead of time. But last Friday, I let go of the world and flew to this city without three of my most essential travel tools; plans, camera and iPod. I took a back seat and let friends take over the steering wheel and it proved to be one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. All I took with me was a small backpack and my frailing appetite and left the rest for the universe to handle.

I didn’t take any pictures, and instead, was the object of the many shots taken by my darling travel-buddy. I met up with a few good friends and shared lots of laughter over great food and drinks. I exhausted my feet inside out and when I wasn’t walking, I held on to dear life on those crazy fast tuk-tuks. I developed a liking for lemongrass, from drinks to shower creams and aromatherapy oil and gulped down fresh starwberry slush from a street vendor.

My world has been really crazy lately and I’m in dire need of a break. I packed my bags again last night, just a few hours after I got back. I have another flight to catch tomorrow evening, but this time, I’m coming home.
