My partner and I arrived home from our trip to Koh Samui today. It is always a bittersweet feeling to come home after a holiday away. On the one hand it is so nice to come back to our own home comforts, books, food and friends and family - and of course our bundle of fluff who we are sure was very well looked after (i.e. spoilt) by his Aunty Em! On the other hand it is also sad to leave behind a beautiful experience - especially when you leave gorgeous tropical weather to come home to freezing cold winter!
We had a wonderful and relaxing holiday - beautiful food, many swims, massages, walks along the beach, meeting friendly Thai people and of course - lots of reading!
I finished four books while we were away; Small Wars by Sadie Jones, The Opposite of Falling by Jennie Rooney and The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets' Nest by Stieg Larrson - reviews to come soon.
In the meantime it is time to get back into the swing of "real" life - catching up on all of your blogs, heading to a bookshop to get a fix (Koh Samui while beautiful is unfortunately lacking in any great English bookshops) and preparing for the start of Paris In July!
