Recently, while under the influence of copious amounts of pear cider, my friends and I decided to plan a beach hopping holiday in Thailand. And, while under the influence of said pear cider, I agreed to organise the whole thing. By my self. For 17 people. Yeah, I’m nuts.
My friends and I often make grand plans while drinking. In the past we pledged to get a log cabin for easter (didn’t happen), a beach house for summer (also didn’t happen), go skiing over winter (didn’t happen) and run a fun run. The same night we vowed to run a fun run we also decided to go on a house boat holiday which was abandoned we learned that you can’t drink alcohol and drive a house boat. The idea of a fun run was also abandoned when we realised it fell the same weekend as a friends birthday and we would much prefer to drink and watch people run by then be a red faced runner.
But this Thailand trip is a little different.
So far what was a 5 night short break has evolved to include 3 nights at the full moon party, 5 nights at a beach bungalow, 4 nights in bangkok and 4 nights in Chiang Mai. We are also considering a few day in Singapore or Kuala Lumper. But the itinerary isn’t the point of this post. The point is that for once in our lives my friends and I have committed to something that doesn’t involved drinking, backyard cricket and a hang over the next day. Now, if only I could get everyone to agree on accommodation…
