Thai-ing the knot
I’m about to head off to Gatwick yet again for another overseas trip. For once I’m not going to a conference or other geeky gathering. This is a trip I’ve been I’ve been looking forward to for quite a while: I’m going to Thailand with Jessica for an honest-to-goodness holiday.
I aim to do two things:
- Experiment with the permutations of combining the following activities:
- Doing nothing.
- Lounging around.
- Celebrate Scott and Cheryl’s wedding on Koh Tao next week.
In what promises to be the gathering in the Orient this season, Scott and Cheryl will be getting married on a beach… on an island… in Thailand. I’m honoured that they’ve invited me along. The added presence of my antipodean brothers in arms like Cam, Dan, Lachlan and Tim means that a good time is guaranteed.
I do plan on taking lots of pictures. I don’t plan on checking email at any stage. I believe I have discharged any duties that were incumbent upon me so if you still want to get hold of me, sorry; you’ll just have to wait ‘till I get back.
Now I just need to run through any last-minute checks in preparation for the culture shock that awaits me at the other end of this flight to Bangkok.
