Perfectly unplanned

The second day of our no-plan vacation was as refreshing as the first. We spent a lazy morning visiting with our friends in Pattaya, and then hit the road around noon.

Trad is a few hours from Pattaya. We caught a ferry there to Koh Chang and arrived at the resort in the early evening. After a long day on the road, I almost tried to talk Whim into a quiet night in. Good thing I didn't.

We took the boys for an evening swim, and it was like some kind of a fairy tale. Fireworks exploded in the sky above us as we splashed in the warm water. Then we changed into comfy jammies for dinner, where we were in for another surprise: a fire show!

The boys were thrilled and I have to admit it was pretty awesome. Our trip is being cut unexpectedly short, so I am so glad we made the most of every moment!


  1. That sucks your trip is being cut short! But the swim sounds fantastic.

    1. You know, it was so relaxing that the three days we had were as refreshing as a week long trip where I was stressed the whole time trying to get us everywhere on time.

      We might have time for another little side trip after we take care of business. :)

  2. Love the photo of all your boys together!
    With the ferry ride (that view is beautiful!)and the unexpected fireworks, it all sounds just magical!

    I'm so glad you got to have this time as a family and it all worked out (except for the coming home early part) so well!! --Lisa

    1. Thanks, Lisa! It was a bummer to cut it short, but we still have some time before school starts up again- maybe we'll still do something.
