Mission(s) accomplished

Going into this trip, I didn't have much of a plan, but I did have a few goals. I'm pleased to say that a good number of those goals can now be checked off.

Firstly, it was/is my goal to get at least one geocache in every country I visit. So far in Thailand, I've gotten two. The last one was in Phuket at a beautiful waterfall. Per saved the day by finding it after the rest of us had given up. Three cheers for Hanwool.

Another goal has proved to be underambitious. The original goal was to read a book a week. I've been here for 2.5 weeks, and I've already read 4 books, all trash. And that is with having constant traveling partners. Once I set out on my own, I imagine I will bump the average up to 2 a week.

Goal #3 is really one of my favorites: go 24 hours shirtless. I went a good 6 weeks while in Palmyra, but that wasn't real life. Well, after yesterday, I'm pleased to say Mission Accomplished. We are back on Ko Phi Phi after letting Andrew and the boys off at the Airport. Yesterday, Trista and I took a tour out to Ko Phi Phi Ley, the highlight of which was Maya Bay, made famous by The Beach. (I didn't take this picture, but I could have.) We also snorkeled, stopped at a beach inhabited by monkeys, and got the experience of riding in a "traditional" Thai long tail boat. (More about that later). Anyway, it was a great time.

Wasn't there a goal about crosswords and Sudoko? This Blog might be too much information (TMI) for a mother!

It looks like he found Suthep Cache and took nothing, and found Stairway to Heaven and took a geocoin. Sure sounds like a lot of fun...

1: Mom, If hear about your boy going with a shirt for 24 hours (I'm up to 96 hours now) is TMI, then I will have to severely edit my stories when I get back. 2: Saxtor, I had to edit up your comment because the comments section has a few issues regarding HTML or something. I'll have a look at that when I get a chance.
