I’ve been feeling a little down since coming back from my Russian adventure. I think there are always times in life where I feel a little lost, but I have to remember that it’s not just me, and I’ve been through times like this before and come out fine the other side. I feel a little homesick, I suppose, I feel like I’m a bit out of touch with what’s going on in England and my family, and that saddens me. Plus, I’m without a full-time job right now, and it’s scary not knowing what will happen in the future, and feeling out of control with applications. But – let it be, right? I can’t control what I can’t control.
What better to cheer me up than cake, and new necklaces? Haha ;)
I bought these outside the Robinson in Trang. There were so many orchids – lots of Cattleya orchids too. I could’ve easily bought more… but stopped myself. I managed to get these ones back to Bangkok safely… it’s a 14 hour drive…
The little yellow-orange hanging one is an Ascocentrum of some sort, possibly ‘garayi’. The white/orange one is a Denrobium hybrid. I’ve got to weigh the pot down because it keeps falling over! Though, the girlfriend cleverly tied it to the railings on my balcony. Denrobiums get so tall, and any kind of wind knocks my one flat.
