  What do you miss most about home when traveling?
I guess I now consider Thailand home after living here for 10 years. When I leave Thailand I miss the food; spicy Thai salads and the general flavor of Kaffir lime leaf and chili. I couldn't name a single restaurant that I love on my home island of Koh Tao, on the East coast of Thailand. My advice would be to eat from all of the amazing little stalls that sell one or two dishes that they have perfected over generations. A great place to stay in Koh Tao is Bans Diving Resort. It is fundamentally a diving resort but it has some amazing suite hill top rooms overlooking the entire bay, and a wicked little beach bar with live music, where I can always see friends.
