Monday Montage: A Sense of Peace

We leave for Phuket on a VIP bus tomorrow night at 11:00 pm. And I am feeling calm. Our bags are not packed. Albeit we have given much away that we have accumulated over the past three months. But, our bags are not packed. And yet, I still feel calm. I have no list written on what we need to do. I have no idea really how we are going to get it all done in time. And yet, I am calm.

So I have been thinking about it, because with all this calmness, I have time to think a bit… There are three possibilities as to why I am swimming in this sea of tranquility: 1) I am in a state of denial and am subconsciously totally freaking out, 2) I have been traveling long enough now to feel like packing and moving again is just, well… a piece of cake, or 3) God has given me enough peace to know that He has our move in control. Most likely it is a little of each. Regardless I am happy, excited, and calm.

And with that, here are my photos for this week. I hope that you enjoy them and have a great Monday!

Zoë loves ice cream... I know, this can't really be considered a "travel" photo, but I just think she is so darn cute!

Chad and Z caught a catfish (and released it), but look at Zoë's face, it cracks me up!

A quick snack of crickets, grasshoppers, and meal worms. I loved the crickets and grasshoppers... the meal worms were a bit too squishy.

Can you spot the typo? I see this every time we drive into town and it makes me laugh every time.

      Thank you! I have a feeling I will need that luck tomorrow as I am running around wondering why I didn’t make any lists.:)

    Great photos but I don’t know about the “snack”………..
    You’ll get things done in no time and be on your way.
    All the best, and may you find your next “sancturary” soon,

      Thanks Auntie! I am thinking I now need to try the chocolate covered grasshoppers, the best of both worlds right?! Haha

    ALL great photos! Best wishes on “moving on.” Hope your bags are now packed! I would have loved to try the “bugs.” Zoe’s ice cream photo is THE BEST!

    Phuket is fun! We love the Siam Safari and Fantasy show. Have you visited these places?

      We have been to phuket in the past, but never the Siam Safari and fantasy show. I will definitely have to check it out while we are there!

    Wow. They have a trampoline at a place. They don’t have an overabundance of lawyers in Thailand yet, do they? I’m glad – it looks like fun!

    And I’m glad you’re feeling calm (I’m commenting late so I’ll just go ahead and assume you stayed that way 😉 ) for whatever reason. A little of each, perhaps? See you in Phuket!

      Yes, the safety standards here in Thailand are a bit more lax than America for sure. 🙂 I did stay pretty calm and we made it to our bus on time and with everything (I think) 😉

        Oh good! Well done – not on the bus (I had confidence in you) but on the staying calm (a much bigger feat).

      It was very nice, we made a few good friends and will probably go back and visit them again soon. Thanks for stopping by!
