I Live In A Postcard- Our First Island Jungle Trek And The Most Beautiful Beach In The World- Koh Rong Island, Cambodia
We hiked through Koh Tong Village, the most amazing and surprisingly challenging jungle hike, and to the most breath-taking beach I’ve seen in my life. Someone told me last week that she read an article in which our beach was named one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world. I believe it. Unreal white sand, and the water. Oh My God!
Kids ran ahead with our friends Ishay and Gal and Natalia, while Kobi and I debated the meaning of life. We do that a lot. You have to when you have the time to explore such thoughts and you feel so lucky, you keep thinking “where’s the catch” but there isn’t one. You’re just happy. I sat down to make a video and “surprise, surprise, surprise” (Gomer Pyle style)….. [wait for it, wait, wait, wait] I cried. (Like this would be the first and last time. I know. Just bare with me, alright?)
It just grabbed me suddenly how lucky I am to live here, in tropical paradise for next to nothing.
I have the time to read, exercise, educate my kids, learn new things, work online and on projects I’m so passionate about. My kids are overjoyed, alive, and so close to us, learning cool things like water bouyancy and how ear pressure equalizes. They’re learning English in a class with Khmer village island kids. Kobi is diving three times a week, hanging out with friends in the bar, taking long walks with me on this kind of postcard beach, working on his new site online, and loving me to death.
It was a really hard pinch myself moment to realize everything I could want in my life- physically, academically, spiritually, financially, and family wise. All I ever dreamed of.
