Long time no update 

So, it’s quite a while since I updated last. So long that I’ve almost forgotten the English language… Been busy at home. Or we’ll, I went diving in Hurghada with my sister in October, but since then I’ve been home. Until now. 

Yesterday I arrived I Khao Lak, Thailand after what felt like a long trip. The flight was filled with families with young children and grandparents… I don’t think I’ve ever been on a more stressful or busy flight… but I survived both that and the transfer to the hotel (2,5 hours). 

Now I’m going to relax on the beach and plan for some diving. 

Some more pics

Back home again after a great vacation in Karon, Thailand. We mostly spent time by the pool, in the shades doing some reading and relaxing. But I also went out diving for four days. Here’s some pictures.

TurtleTurtle3White Tip Shark

It’s barely visible in the last picture, but on the righthand side in the middle of the picture is a shark. We were on approximately 20 m, but didn’t have enough no decompression time to go down to get a real good look on it. We saw it much clearer in reality than it’s visible in the picture though. Saw three sharks during the liveaboad. Two whitetip sharks (on the picture) and one guitar shark. Pretty cool 🙂

Greetings from Karon Beach, Thailand

So, I’m finally out traveling again. This time I’m back in Thailand. My sister, brother and I are in Karon Beach in Phuket. We arrived a few days ago and have checked out the hotel pool and beach by now. It’s really hot here, so nice!

On Thursday and Friday we’re doing our first diving and on Monday we’re going to the Similan Island for a liveaboard trip. Gonna be so much fun.

Don’t have many pictures yet, so here’s one of the first walking path I’ve seen in Thailand and one of the pool.

A year later and it’s time again!

A few days ago it was one year since we started school in Rangsit Thailand. It’s crazy how fast time flies! And I still haven’t sorted through all photos I took during last year, so I couldn’t easily find any pictures from the first few days in Rangsit, but here are some random photos anyway.

Now, with it being three months since I left Thailand and the university in Rangsit it’s time to start studying again. This time in Sweden though, and only as a part time student (while working full time). I just started the Master of Public Health Science Program at a university close to where I live. However, I will be a distance/online student. The entire program is a program without any physical classes or meet ups. Which is fantastic since it’s four years of studying and I don’t know how long I’ll be staying here. But now I can study from anywhere in the world.

Random thoughts

Did I tell you about the hours I spent on the train station in Bangkok watching the filming of a Thailand’s Got Thailand intro? I was there hours before my train to the south left because I wanted to be sure I got a ticket (I was heading to Phuket for my diving trip) and was forced to watch the recording of the intro time and time again. It looks like it’s all shoot in one sequence, but let me tell you it isn’t. And no reactions are spontaneous, incase you were wondering.

Anyway, I just suddenly remembered it and started looking for it. It’s the first intro thing in the following video. Don’t ask me how I suddenly got thinking about it. It was easy to find though…

 

My time in Thailand is coming to an end

It’s a little sooner than first planned, but it’s for the best. Tonight I’m heading to the airport and tomorrow morning my flight leaves Thailand. It’s always a special feeling leaving a place where you have lived for almost a year and most likely won’t return to. I’m not very sentimental, so I’m mostly looking forward to whats coming next.

So what is coming next? Well, after a quick stop to visit my best friend and her family I’m heading up north. During the summer I’m going to work within home care, as a physiotherapist, and live with my sister. Going to be fun. Then I’m going to figure out the future.
