Many times inspiration comes from where you least expect it! A few days ago we met Paul.
Paul is one of the many people with inspiring stories we met along in our journey. But his story is special because it’s not just about another young man who decided to take on the world!
Let me tell you a little bit about the place, his place. The island is called Ko Jum (just between Krabi and Koh Lanta) and the beach that stretches between Bonhomie Beach Cottages and the sea is not very wide, but long enough. The bungalows are spread out on a little hill, right in the middle of the jungle and you can hear the waves even from the farthest cottage.
And I think his decision couldn’t have been better!
He’s 76 now, but could easily pass for 65, he has a special cheerfulness and likes to talk about any subject. That’s how I got to know his take on politics, religion, spirituality! It’s not easy discussing these matters even with friends, let alone with strangers while traveling and I usually just avoid them. But around him, I feel like I could ask anything!
He’s a mature, wise man. Why do I think he’s wise? Because he knows he doesn’t know everything and likes to challenge what he thinks he knows. He still loves to travel and he travels! As much as he can!
He doesn’t like concrete, so all his bungalows are made of wood and stone.
I don’t know about you, but I really liked and felt inspired by his story. Not everyone buys a place without having enough information about advantages and disadvantages. But his openness was probably the reason everything fell into place so neat!
Travel & love, love to travel!
