Getting away

At Tea Talk we share how we are feeling and what we are thinking. Join us with host Ruth at Celebrate Friendship

I’m having oolong orange tea in a white ceramic cup.

I’m feeling excited, hurried, my heart gripped. Early this morning I made an abrupt decision to see UNESCO Heritage site Angkor Wat on Sunday. That means going to the immigration department to get a re-entry permit which I did today. I’m going out again for unfinished shopping after posting this. Now did I just imply being heartbroken? Truth be told I seldom admit a heartbreak. If things don’t get sorted I could end up mourning in the next few weeks. I hope this quick trip will help numb the impact of an impending blow.

On my mind are travel details. FCC Angkor Hotel, which I fancy because Angelina Jolie stayed there while filming Tomb Raider, is fully booked until January 15th. I won’t be surprised if I end up in some guesthouse without a cyber presence. But I really do not mind that. I just want to get out of Bangkok for a few days and try to forget that I am facing a heartbreak. Wish me luck.

There are more or less fifty hours til Cambodia.  In the midst of work and a company party tomorrow, I might be able to have enough research to get me through this getaway.  Here’s something short but loaded:

“A lady should be modest”
Hilary to Lara Croft, Tomb Raider

    Loved the quote, Hazel, and the picture, too. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog.

    I’ve been to Cambodia several times but never get see Angkor Wat. That’s one on my list of places to visit someday.
    I hope you enjoy your well-deserved holiday. You have been working hard.

    Have a blessed Christmas. I hope things get sorted for you, and you’ll welcome the new year with a blast.

    Hugs and blessings!
