The only type of traffic jam I want to see! 🚗 🚙 🚘 SO not missing Toronto busy highways. I'm soaking in all the sun rays for the last day in Thailand. After finishing up my work in January with the @wedluxe show I really needed these 2 weeks to refresh.
When the sea turns peach you know it's going to be a good one.
“She loves the serene brutality of the ocean, loves the electric power she felt with each breath of wet, briny air.” - - - - - - Yes, I'm in love with the ocean, ever since I was a little girl. This love pushed me to study marine biology, to become a divemaster and to live in so many different places in the world....I don't know where I would be now if it weren't for the ocean ! - - - - - - Background photo by the most talented Sasha Zvereva (thank you!)

We love the waters of Thailand, right? WRONG! We DO NOT love the tap water!! I woke up a few nights ago feeling thirsty and in a sleepy, lazy haze I decided to take a quick sip from the ensuite tap instead of grabbing a glass of water from our filtered tap outside 😱. BAD MOVE! I should’ve known better, this is the third time I’ve done this to myself. My little sip has resulted in four days with a gurgling stomach that sounds something similar to a perpetually angry crocodile... and what usually follows from that feeling (I’ll save the gory details). #realthailand at its best!
Strolls outside and school runs have been harrowing experiences with quick pit stops to put my head in the bush followed by a scene out of one of the early Fast and The Furious movies. (oh Paul Walker! 😭) Needless to say, I regret my decision and will not be seeking out a tap to quench my thirst again.
So, word to the wise, bottled or filtered water is the way to go here!
Any other expats in Thailand that know this feeling all too well? Or Bali lovers that know this as Bali Belly?
