I attended a 3 day retreat offered by Thrive Ministry in Phuket, Thailand in February. They are held in various places around the world for North American Women working overseas in a context similar to ours. I highly recommend it. Here is the link to their website:
The event was held at the Centara Karon Resort in Karon Beach, Phuket. The resort was wonderful and close to a lovely beach.
I stayed an extra day and was able to visit the Ko Phi Phi islands with several of the volunteers. We took a speed boat to Ko Phi Phi Don for lunch and then moved on to Ko Phi Phi Leh for snorkeling and exploring. Beautiful shear cliffs and turquoise water:)
