Being back in a metropolis, back in my old-real world was surprisingly agreeable, it certainly did not hurt that I was completely spoilt rotten!
Jamie put me to work on the first day with a little removalist work-out, we followed up our working afternoon with a spot of shoe shopping and a thirst quenching pear cider....or five.
That evening I got a taste of an American, formerly junior high only sporting phenomenon "Dodgeball". Previously I thought Dodgeball was simply the cinematic comedic brilliance of Ben Stiller, but no, it is seriously competitive stuff. A high energy combination of concentration, coordination, retro fashions and musical flashback... if its not already back in Oz I am bringing it!
My LA stopover was sweet but way too short, before I knew it I was en-route to Thailand for some more of my old real world.
A week in tropical paradise... Old friends, a beach wedding, my own tranquil waterfront villa, bachelor/ette shenanigans, tanning, a burnt esophagus, Buckets, Dvd's, sweating, sleeping and future lifestyle designing was how I spent my seven days in Koh Samui.
After six months of being on the move, forever forging on towards a new destination, trying a new activity and constantly meeting new people I found it a little difficult to be idle... I can only imagine it as a taste of what lies ahead when I return to Melbourne later this year.
For now though there is only more new places and people on the horizon as I board another plane and long-haul my ass back to the US for the next chapter of my crazy adventure.
