Thailand: From BKK to Phuket

Antonia and I have left the orphanage and are now traveling together. Last Saturday we flew down to Phuket, Thailand but as usual we had some complications with planes in Bangkok. We missed our connecting flight to Phuket. It all worked out though. We got to stay at a 5 star hotel for a 2 star price. Hot water, flushing toilets with toilet paper (we see this as a luxury after the orphanage) and a pool with a poolside bar. It was great... we loved every second of it.

We arrived in Phuket (pronounced poo-ket) and after searching every hostel/hotel in the neighborhood we landed at Kata Minta. A great little hotel near Kata beach, where we spent the afternoon.

The following day we visited James Bond Island, a Muslim fishing village located in the middle of a river (it was quite an eye opener), a monkey cave temple and we kayaked around limestone rocks that just shot out of the water.

The next day we went on a tour to the Phi Phi Islands, Maya beach and another monkey beach. It is so beautiful here!
