Alyssa it sounds like you are doing very well in Thailand. It is easy for us to tell you to stay there for another semester but it is up to you to decide and especially with God’s help.
By your descriptions on your blog, we feel we are there with you and enjoying the scenery, people, food, and every step of your adventure, etc., just by reading your blog. You do a fantastic job and I am always going on line to see if you have written again since I do not want to miss any exciting thing going on in your life.
Ask God to help you to decide as to what your future holds for you.
We love you very much.

Thank you for this comment :) I’m still working through my decision, and I really appreciate your advice. I’m glad you are enjoying the blog!
Hey girly! I’m digging the new background on the blog! =)
Hey there! I found your blog through a google search of “girl travelling Ko-Sichang alone” because that is what I intend to do as well. From your post it sounds like it was alright…right? I hail from Chicago and currently I’m teaching in South Korea. Do you think I should risk it? I was going to stay overnight there. Sorry for rambling…I’m excited/nervous!!! Thanks for your post! It was very enjoyable to read (minus the seasick part ;))
Hi Lia, thanks for the comment!
Koh Sichang is definitely alright. It’s very quiet, though, and there isn’t a whole lot to do. It’s a good place to take a book and an ipod, and drive around on a motorbike for the day. If you are only going to one island in Thailand, I might choose someplace else. There isn’t really a beach to speak of, just a tiny strip of sand largely taken up by a couple restaurants.
As for places to stay, I know a girl who spent a weekend at the monastery there and really enjoyed her time. You’d be waking up at 4 am every day to wash dishes and meditate, though. When I go, I stay at Tiew Pai guesthouse…if you get off the pier and walk straight through town, past the 7/11, it will be on the right hand side up the hill. Bungalows are a decent price, and they have tiny rooms resembling a prison cell with a window for 200 baht a night.
The only other thing is that you probably won’t enjoy your time there unless you rent a bike. There’s no public transportation; you can hire a tuk tuk to drive you around all day, but I think its better to explore on your own.
