KL To London: Homesick
Location: Tha Kham, Phunphin District
To be completely honest, I lost track of where exactly I was in these photos. I merely remember that I was in this vicinity and the seasides still surrounded the towns I was passing through. I rode for about 150km that day along this coastal road before I decided to put up the night at a cheap chalet nearby.
I sat down and had a very satisfying Thai dinner by myself and went on to this beach to watch the sunset. This mother came by with her little kid, walking along the shore and I couldn’t help but feel a tinge of homesickness. I missed my wife and baby Hong Yan. I wondered what they were doing, how they spent the nights without me.
I walked behind them – hoping they wouldn’t freak out thinking I was someone dodgy – and the footprints just made me wish my own wife and daughter was right here walking with me. It was just the 8th day and the road ahead seemed long. Too long.
