I came across some unpublished blog posts – it has been a year now and I haven’t put up these photos! So I think it’s about time.
When the ship docked in Phuket I was excited to see the sights – I had been there 2 times previously on the ship but had never been able to go ashore.
Look at these old planes next to the ship! This year they were gone. I wonder where they went?
The pier is home to all sorts of souvenirs. It will be cheaper in Myanmar, I complained to them. The Thai souvenirs are so pretty.
I got a taxi tour for quite cheap, of course. It took me to a cultural village, displaying aspects of Thai culture and life.
I bought some bananas
To feed my new friend. Cute!
A display of rubber making
Rice farming – this was the first time I had seen rice growing! When I got back and showed Sherwin the pictures, he was excited too.
The first time seeing real Caribau, too
This was the part of Thailand where they filmed “The Beach.” I saw some beautiful little beaches.
Back on the pier, I bought some fruit to bring aboard the ship. “Chico” is Sherwin’s favourite.
The tour also took me to a beautiful Buddhist temple – more about that soon!
