Phuket….content goes here. (lol)
Oh Phuket….Thailand…Was it May? Yes, it was May….6 months later and I am finally getting back to this blog…So sorry for the delay…I suck. Well, I don’t suck, I just tend to get distracted, quite distracted.
Phuket was my first Thailand experience. I flew from New Zealand, to Singapore, then to Phuket.
Why Phuket? I dunno. Just kidding, I had a good friend, from Tennessee of all places, whom I met in Auckland, New Zealand, who was heading there before she left for a bus tour in Laos.
Kellie is her name. And she is THE BOMB! We travelled for a bit through New Zealand, and she was one of the main contributors to my decision to make the jump over to Thailand in the first place. (Thanks, Kel!)
We stayed at the 7Q Hotel for 4 nights! That place is also the bomb! Close to the ocean, and with a super duper infinity pool, best service and at a great price!
Oh, Phuket. What an experience. Geeze, here I had my first face to face interaction with the notorious, “LadyBoy.”
WOW! Those dudes are hotter than most chicks! I was quite jealous! Sometimes, they really can trick you, you can’t tell that they are dudes AT ALL! Just ask some of the European men who thought they were bringing a nice Thai girl home for the night….Oh the stories I’ve heard!!!! And of course there are some who are a bit old for the nick name “Boy.” “LadyMan” would be more appropriate for these “more experienced” characters. Poor souls.
Either way, we had some good times with some nice Aussies, who were having a short holiday there. They were our “protectors” while in this unknown, lawless land…
Phuket is also the place where I made one of the stupidest descisions in my life EVER, but luckily, it turned out just fine.
I might consider Phuket as the place where my bawls quite possibly turned to steel.
