Hainan, baby!

Thailand 2.5  years ago.

When you’re reading this post I am hopefully peacefully settled at a beach in Hainan. Yep. Left Suzhou last night, jumped on a plane and ended up in Sanya. Me and my friend Willing are spending 4 days here: swimming, tanning, eating ice-cream and reading books. Unless Willing violently forces me, or desperately begs me, I won’t do any kind of sightseeing. I don’t want to. I just want to lay here, feel the sea breeze, go for a swim, sip on a mocktail (that throughout the day most likely will be replaced by a cocktail), go for a beach walk and relax. No Chinese characters. No crazy bosses. No pressure. No computer. No flu (or OK, I still have a flu but I’ll pretend as if I don’t have one). No thoughts about the future. No talk about the future.

Might sound boring to some but after a rather full-on semester, this is just what I need.

Some pre-written posts will appear on the blog while I am gone, so please, do check in. And, if I get a complete blogging-abstinence I’ll check into the nearest Internet cafe (very likely to happen. I have a quite well-known blogging/email-addiction).

I hope you have a blast! Enjoy the beach. We'll all be waiting here when you return from fun and sun.

Please add an "E" on the "her" in "I just want to lay her" phrase, it's a bit giggle-worthy without it :P Don't know if you're familiar with that particular english expression, anyways...
