I'm not big on travelling or going abroad but I'm quite looking forward to tomorrow's yoga retreat @ Samahita in Koh Samui. This is a longer retreat than the one I had a couple of years ago in Bali, lasting almost 10 days, and I'm going there alone, which is rather nice. My friends are quite surprised I've never been to Thailand before, consider it's quite close to Hong Kong and not an expensive holiday destination.
I normally plunge into these "holidays" straight from work (like working right up to the last minute before boarding the plane) but today, I've decided to take a day off to, well, prepare (like checking out flight times, shopping for things to wear on the beach ~ yeah ~ and buying things like insect repellent...) Have to say I really hate shopping but at least I got that over and done with in a couple of hours. Bought so many environmentally friendly stuff cos the retreat is totally eco-friendly.
I don't have any expectations at all ... titled "Stress Management", I actually don't think I'm stressed out at all (other than the travel and flying itself) ... but it's just a good excuse to take a break and just totally relax (have already booked a number of massage sessions) and unwind. Am wondering if I'll want to return to, like, civilisation after a week there!
