I was unfortunate enough to catch a few bars of the latest Nickelback song while flicking through Thai TV Channels. This is what I thought when I heard the chorus: It would be better if nothing had ever existed, than for this to have happened.
But then I looked out my balcony overlooking Sairee beach on Koh Tao and the world felt right again. I’m staying on this tropical paradise for a month or so, doing little other than snorkelling, eating, drinking and sleeping. I am also trying to keep count of my lucky stars.
