Photo of the Week 250: Koh Samui

Happy Easter, if you’re one of those who spent the day eating chocolate shaped like bunnies or dying eggs funky colors! I’ve always loved Easter weekend as a time to connect with family and friends over a good meal, do all the crafting, and celebrate the arrival of Spring. While Thailand isn’t a traditionally Easter-celebrating country, I managed to tick several of those boxes this weekend with a girl’s weekend away in Koh Samui.

We planned the trip around running a Midnight 5K, something I’d loved doing last year in Bangkok. This time, instead of “training” by consuming fast food and partying for three days straight, I thought I’d go the more traditional route of actually doing practice runs and see how that would go. Turns out, it’s a solid strategy! I managed to talk a couple girlfriends from Koh Tao into joining me, and we headed over to our neighboring isle for a few days of giggling by the pool, dragging ourselves across a finish line, and toasting to our friendship with a fun Easter Sunday brunch.

The photos I took were mostly of the silly and/or sweaty selfie variety, which left little options for Photo of the Week. But I did manage a few civilized snaps of our beautiful brunch this morning, which gives you a little more of a peek at our weekend (more to come on Facebook and Instagram — and of course the blog — too!)

Happy Sunday! How did you spend your weekend?
