    Met up with Dave & Linda and together with Rod & Julie, we walked the goat track down to Centara Grand motel. We spent the morning lounging in the pools, jumping off the 5m platform, drinking cocktails and lounging around.Read more

    Sutin Bar #1

    September 7, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    After a quick drink at the Dino Bar in Kata, it was unanimously decided that we had better check in on the Sutin Bar. For one drink only..... honest!
    Well, it was the prodigious homecoming for the part time locals that Rod & Julie are. The girls were so happy to them again. We all took up our usual seats and then the beer just flowed. The music was good and loud.
    Finally, after lots of beer and some randomly placed sambucca shots, we called it quits.
    'Just one beer', Rod said..............

    New Red Onion location.

    September 7, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Tried out the new Red Onion over in Kata.
    It is a new location for them, but it is the same excellent food and prices.
    We were not disappointed and we got some planning sorted for Rod's birthday there.Read more

    First day's madness.

    September 5, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Dave & Linda came over to catch up. After a brief walk along Patong Beach and an ice cream, we went looking for lunch.
    Well, we found a new looking pub called Genius 2. They had a food menu and served beers. Who would have thought?.............
    Anyway, the food was awesome, the bar girls good fun and the beer cold. Sometime before dark, we loaded the other two into a tuk tuk and sent them home. We hung around because Tuesday night is free buffet dinner night. Honest! So more beers and a free feed.
    Shelley got help in the kitchen.
    Great night. Thanks Oi, Kai, Praw & Mamasan.
    We might be suffering in the morning...........

    Airborne #2

    September 4, 2017 in Cambodia ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    We are now on the run in to Bangkok.
    And finally in Phuket.
    The airport renovations here are definitely for the better. More organised to clear customs and way less frentic to get your transfer to the motel.Read more
