Wow, publishing this Photo of the Week post means that a week and a half has gone by since I left New York for my Southeast Asia 4.0 adventure! If this is any indication of how time is going to fly by, these five months will be over in a blink.
I’m glad that I have a bit more of my Hawaii travels to share with you guys before I start writing about this trip, because I think I need more time to process my emotions about being here on Koh Tao. There is probably no other destination more meaningful in my life.
Because I’m here primarily to catch up with friends and just check in on the place I once called home, I’ve been pretty lazy about taking photos (though don’t forget you can find me on now!)
While I’ve seen some stunning sunsets on Koh Tao, the sunrises aren’t typically as colorful or spectacular. This one was unlike anything I’ve ever seen on the island — the perfect reward for being on a boat so early
I love me some Muay Thai. In the madness of the stadium on fight night, I love this quiet moment of prayer between trainer and fighter.
The ritualistic dance performed before most fights is one of my favorite parts of the night.
Some people find it a bit violent to have kids fight — but come on, have you seen American football?!
My first dive back on the island was at the last site I dove before leaving — Shark Island! Everything came full circle.
A great find — a spotted ray peeking out from under a ledge.
I love this moment — hitting the water for the first time, a dive with endless possibilities ahead.
