This all goes back to my last day in Phuket earlier this week.
For me it was a day where I found out a little piece of me I didn’t like. It was a day that will hold significance in my life moving forward. If you haven’t read about what happened that day, go read it!
I woke up this morning with one of those moments. You know, those rare moments where things become crystal clear and everything comes into focus.
Yeah, I love waking up to those.
My plan for my trip hasn’t changed. I’m still going to spend a few more days here in Chiang Mai and then fly down to Bangkok for a few more days there before going to Kuala Lumpur, Japan and then home.
I’m going to do quite possibly the craziest thing I’ve ever done on Saturday – just 4 days from now.
I will be in Bangkok by then as I’m flying out of Chiang Mai on Friday afternoon.
On Saturday I’m going to take a kind of day trip if you will involving 2 flights.
I’m flying to Phuket early Saturday morning and flying back later in the day
In between the flights and the minivan transfers to and from the airport I’ll have about 3 hours in town.
You know what I’m going to do?
I’m going to sit in the McDonalds by the beach and wait for a shy 10 year old girl to come by again selling flowers.
I’m going to give her this note…
And in English…
I was here one week ago and you wanted to sell me flowers.
I was rude and waved you off.
I am very sorry.
Please can I purchase all your flowers for 1000 baht.
This impromptu trip for the day is going to cost me close to $300 but it may very well be the best money I ever spend.
I cannot wait until Saturday. (edit: you can find out what happened here)
