Here we are in Thailand. What a shock. Landing in Phuket after 2 months in Sri Lanka was a bit of a culture shock. After asking Grandma Shirls to bring a bounty of supplies we find enormous Tescos and huge shopping malls and a gazillion tourists and if we thought Sri Lanka was pricey then Thailand has made us reassess again.
We spent our first Thai night in a small tent at Micky Monkey resort on Phuket island. Thanks to our new friend, Uncle Fred - a larger than life Ex-Saffa military birthday boy - and his many brothers and sisters (especially Matt) we had a wild 30hours of beer, great food, endless ice cream and beer plus Pete’s trapeze which Mikey and Jessica conquered (as did Uncle Fred despite having lost both legs above the knee) and I bottled out due to my pathetic excuse of the broken fingers sustained 3mths ago that have still yet to gain full movement
We switched the tent for a luxury apartment once Shirls (Mikes mum) joined us. Three bedrooms, private plunge pool, roof terrace, 3D flatscreen TV. Now we're definitely flashpacking.
3 nights living the highlife visiting the pleasant enough Naihan beach and the lovely Yonui cove was a great easing into the country. We even got away with the scratched bumper on the hire car (thanks to me reversing backwards over a moped). Never underestimate the power of taking a ridiculously cute blonde haired toddler with you!
We moved to Ko Lanta from Phuket and are currently staying on Klong Nin beach. We have a great pool, an awesome beach and even a beach bar named after our youngest, Otto.
Another 3 nights here before slumming in Ko Jum and then luxury in Ko Yao Yai.
Love to everyone at home and happy travels to all those we’ve met so far. xx
