Doing Life Differently in Thailand

Doing Life Differently in Thailand

Author(s): Mel Pike

Location(s): Phuket

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs

Era(s): 2023

Realising in her early fifties that she needed to do life differently for a while, Mel seizes the opportunity of a few months with no responsibilities in her happy place, Thailand.

Among the sun-soaked streets of Phuket’s Kata Beach, she discovers the joys of solo travel and embracing new experiences. From the aromatic flavours of Thai food to the restorative power of the ocean to learning more of the language and the fun of immersing herself in the vibrant culture, Mel takes you with her every step of the way.

The resilience and kindness of the Thai people she befriends have a profound impact on her. As her days unfold, Mel candidly reflects on love, loss and the passage of time, and sees how essential it was for her to simplify her life.

At its core, this book is a celebration of courage and curiosity, where each moment is infused with possibility and wonder, inspiring readers to step outside their comfort zones, live life to the full, accept the warmth of genuine human connections and create lifelong memories. It’s a reminder that travel has the power to awaken the senses and nourish the soul.
