Early life Thoreau was born in in ConcordMassachusetts, the third child of a feckless small businessman named John Thoreau and his bustling wife, Cynthia Dunbar Thoreau. Though his family moved the following year, they returned in Even when he grew ambivalent about the village after reaching adulthood, he never grew ambivalent about its lovely setting of woodlands, streams, and meadows. In his parents sent him to Concord Academy, where he impressed his teachers and so was permitted to prepare for college.
Today, I was convinced I was going to die. I was happily sunbathing on the ferry, working on my tan when about half-way through the journey I felt a large bump.
Several of them as the boat swayed slightly from side to side. Being the paranoid, anxiety-filled individual that I am, my head was immediately filled with irrational fears — What was that? Did we just hit something? What if it made a hole in the boat? Are we going to sink? Maybe we hit a shark?
Are there sharks out here?! Little did I know, for the first time in my life, the reality was far worse than my paranoia.
Unaware that anything had happened, we arrived at Phuket where a very nervous taxi driver was waiting for us. Earthquake 30 minutes before you arrive. All I could think about was getting to the airport and getting out of Phuket before the aftershocks started to hit.
