Tropical Dreams

There are a handful of undeveloped islands in Southern Thailand. It took hours of traveling by land and sea, but it was worth the search. Letting go on a remote tropical island was the perfect remedy for all my urban ailments. I would wake up with the sunrise, go for a swim in the ocean searching for clown fish hiding in sea anemones, and eat a sweet coconut bun in my jungle bungalow listening to minimalist music. I’m tanner than ever, and slowly forgetting that it’s still freezing in Shanghai..

    this looks so wonderful! Lately, the eternal cold of the Caucasus Mountains has driven me to putting my feet in a tub of hot water to warm them up. Needless to say, I am envious of your tropical escape.
