I am currently escaping the winter in warm Thailand. It is warm here with sunshine, ocean, white sand, palm trees and cliffs. This is perfect for a climbing holiday. I actually did climb the first day. Just some easy routes to get the feeling of leading and feeling of this wonderful rock. Then I hurt my heel (not during climbing – no it happened in the ocean) and now I have a lot of time to read books, drink tea, watch all the Chinese and other climbers. That is good too. And hopefully in a few days I can go climbing again.
