The trip over here was like 30 hours altogether from start to finish but thankfully it went by quickly and smoothly!
I am staying at a place called “Dream Village.” The owner, Tony, is an awesome guy (born and raised in Phuket) who has gone out of his way to help get me settled.
Others, such as The Fight Geek, have recommended I go with him, too, and I can confirm I’m in good hands. This place is less than a 5 min walk from Tiger Muay Thai, where I hope to start training on Monday.

For now, I am resting up, hanging out, and exploring the sights. Yesterday I got a Thai massage and exfoliation (er, Thai massage was wicked! Especially my toe- when she massaged my toe, it was excruciating. Hope it’s just scar tissue?), saw some of the city, saw a dog on the lap of a girl riding a motorcycle, tried strange fruit, saw many lizards,
took three showers, and slept a lot ☺
Today, I plan on checking out Wat Chalong, and the Big Buddha- pics and details will be forthcoming.
Here are some of the eats so far including this morning:
3 egg white omelette with spinach and fruit (some unknown). It felt nice and healthy! The unknown fruit was pretty good, and the banana I saved as a snack for later.
Chicken with “kale” (is it really kale?). The greens were really good! The chicken was pretty oily and I tried to pat it down with a napkin, but it was still pretty oily. Not bad though!
Muesli with fruit and yogurt. Not bad! This wouldn’t be my typical breakfast but I have to bend my preferences while abroad

They sell gasoline often in bottles by the road! Yummy, soda!
