During vacation from my vacation, I went to the beach everyday to read, journal, meditate, and soak up the healing energy of the sun. Compared to most places, it was pretty peaceful and only a few random little girls came up to me trying to sell stuff. Of course it is fun to talk to them, but I always feel so sad for kids who are out selling stuff instead of going to school. Other than that, it was super chill and just the way I like to spend my beach time!At first, I was thinking to just stay there for just a few days and then travel on to an island or two near there. Then I was going to go to Ko Chang and see a little more of Thailand. Yet after being at Otres Beach for just a few days, it began to become apparent that this was not exactly going to be my plan. Since my plans had already changed once arriving to Sihanoukville, which is how I ended up on Otres Beach in the first place, I was certainly not surprised that they continued to change.Fortunately for me, I ended up meeting some really awesome people who were mostly all working there for the season. Everyone that I met was pretty cool, but the coolest person that I met was this guy from England. Interestingly, we quickly realized that we have an abundance of things in common as far as what we believe and how we live our lives. In fact, he is one of those rare people that I meet that really just “gets it!” So it was wonderful to spend time with someone who could share some other perspectives and insights. Basically, no matter how many times I attempted to leave in order to see more places near Otres, it just didn’t happen! The farthest I went was into town to use the ATM and to check out the market. Even funnier is the fact that I ended up staying there for three weeks at this Limhour Guesthouse in Otres Beach where there is not really much but a dirt/sand road on the beach with some guesthouses, restaurants, and bars. During this time, many people messaged me asking what my next plan was, etc. However, especially during long travels, there are times when there is nothing better than just finding a tranquil place and enjoying it, which is exactly what I did!
