Heading to Phuket!

That’s right!  Around the time this is published I’ll be hopping on plane to Phuket in Thailand for some much needed rest and relaxation!  I’m looking forward to hanging out on the beach and finding out what the town has to offer in terms of cuisine.

We’d been thinking about going to Phuket for about a year, and now I’m finally going to get to see the place.  White beaches, great water, great photo opportunities and I really hope there’s some great food!  I wonder if Thailand has satay?

Anyhow, if you’re not familiar with the place, here are some map clippings.

The first one shows Singapore at the bottom and Phuket at the top left, circled.  It’s not that far away.  The flight is less than an hour, and I can’t recall exactly how much we spent on the tickets, but it wasn’t much.

The second one is a close up of the Phuket area and also shows the Phi Phi Islands, where that movie The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio was filmed.  I never saw it, but I heard the beach looked great, so we’re going to try to get out there and have a look for ourselves.

Our hotel is supposed to have wi-fi, but who knows?  Maybe it’ll be flaky.  I’ll try to get online at least once a day in the evening to approve any comments there may be, and I have some posts scheduled for tomorrow and the day after, but no guarantees!
