The Quiet Side of Phuket

Michelle's children have extremely generous parents, and as an end-of-year treat she was offered a swanky condo for a weekend on the eastern coast of Phuket. We found ourselves in a deluxe private complex for the Fourth, celebrating with some relaxing beach time broken only by dips in the pool.

The little getaway pad is clearly meant for more than two people, all the space was a stark contrast to our comfy little Bangkok abode.


This area of Phuket was a bit off the beaten track so it took about 2 hours of adventuring to find the beach (it turned out to be a 10 minute walk from the condo, hidden on the other side of a mysterious bamboo tunnel). 

It wasn't the most beautiful beach landscape but it had the benefit of being completely devoid of people.

After a beach run we cooled down in the pool on the condo's deck.

This week marks the official end of Michelle's school year so she is officially on vacation and all geared up for our summer trips. Stay tuned for pictures from Taipei, Seoul, Japan and more!
