This month six of us girls went to Phuket for a holiday of nothing but pure relaxation and bliss! It was a very needed getaway for most of us and we really spent our time doing 'phuk' (expect a few more of those puns!) all!
In the seven days that we were on the island it mainly consisted of lazing by Patong beach on the sun beds (100 baht to lay down!), lazing by the pool/s at the hotel (there were three to choose from), shopping up a storm in the markets and eating eating eating! I think i ate Thailand out of Pad Thai (no exaggeration i had it at least once a day) - there were some fabulous ones and some not-so-fabulous (e.g. the slimy noodles Stef and I experience at Kata Beach). Overall though, the food was magical!
The highlight of the trip definitely have to be the day trip to Phi Phi Islands. This was the place where the movie 'The Beach" was filmed. It was unbelievable - to the point where words dont describe it. You just need to go there. On the way there we stopped at Khai Island (which is where i took the umbrella photo above) - this island was like a screensaver - the perfect colour water and the whitest and finest sand you have ever seen (it was almost like white flour)! The weather was fabulous too.
All in all it was a winner trip. So glad to have had a week of doing nothing - it was long overdue and to go with the girls was a real treat too. love them all. xx
