So I’ve settled into somewhat of a schedule here after being here for over a month. I stick to it about 50% of the time.
It looks something like this:
6.30 a.m. – Get out of bed, brush my teeth, floss, get-ready for my day.
7 a.m. – Head to the reception to grab my guest list which will give me an idea of how many students will attend.
7:15 a.m. – Prepare the yoga studio/shala. Have my coffee/tea and a snack whilst doing so. If I have extra time, I send cute emoticons to the fiancé and tell him I miss him – important stuff. At this time, he’s just leaving his office in Canada.
7:50 a.m. – Students arrive.
8 – 10 a.m. – Start meditation and yoga.
10:30 a.m. – Finish tidying up the studio yoga and I usually spend this time talking to the fiancé or Skyping him. It’s 9:30 his time so I get to talk to him about his day before he goes to bed, which I love. It’s feels just like our little bedtime talks before when we’re physically together. The best is when I see him and Koya on video, makes my day seeing both of them cuddling up together.
11:30 a.m./12 p.m. – Get an early lunch.
12 – 3:30 p.m. – Leisure time which I spend watching tv shows, replying emails and wedding related stuff. Laundry and clean.
3:30 – Eat my last meal for the day before 4 p.m.
4 p.m. – Some sort of physical activity. Either cycling, swimming or more yoga.
6 p.m. – If I don’t have any plans with my friends, I’m back in my room and spend the rest of the evening reading, studying Thai, speaking to my fiancé, family and friends before bedtime.
10 p.m. – Bedtime
The other 50% of the time I’m not following this schedule I’m spending time with my new friends (both guests and the girls that work here) visiting beaches, fishing villages, waterfalls, mangrove, markets, 7-Elevens, riding scooters and being teased by the locals for my pronunciation of Thai words. Here’s a glimpse of daily life here on the island.
