In the last few days, I’ve blurted a lot of not-so-happy messages out, especially on Twitter. And the posts on my blog have only talked about food, cooking being my latest pastime. Has it been too long that I talked about travel? I guess not. Has it been too long that I took a vacation for myself? May be yes!
The point is, I need a break! :) A long day leaves you tired, mentally drained and physically exhausted… Imagine what months of such would do to you! What you need in such times is an escape, a mode to get back to life, a mode to feel alive! All I need in times like these is a trip, away from home and into the wild. Wondering when was the last time I took a trip to relax, the first thing that comes to my mind is the 2010 trip to Phi Phi Island in Thailand.
We stayed at the Phi Phi Island Village Resort in complete luxury, but the highlight of the trip was the endless hours I spent in the water. Swimming is something I really love. Floating in the water relaxes me completely, making me devoid of all the worldly troubles. Phi Phi island has some pretty corals and awesome marine life. Take a snorkel, put on your fins, and splash you go!
Swimming in turquoise blue waters of the Indian Ocean with these very pretty other forms of life made me come back to life, made me feel alive! Being alive is awesome and that is what bathing in Phi Phi made me feel.
If you even plan a honeymoon, or a second honeymoon or just a relaxing week off from work, head off to the Phi Phi Islands near Phuket in Thailand and feel alive :)This post is written for Cinthol’s new Alive is Awesome marketing campaign.
