    Half day trip to Patong beach the main part of Phuket..... was fun, bit we much prefer our quiet little corner of Phuket an hour away at Mai Khao beach. Alicia was a bit off colour today but soldiered on for some shopping time.

    Lost count of how many times we said no to a tuk tuk tour of Phuket, hair braiding for the girls, a massage or a tailored suit for Nige.... I almost bought a shirt that clearly ecpressed my disinterest but decided to stay polite!Read more

    We made it to Thailand! First stop was the wild island of Phuket. We stayed on the famous Patong beach- full of bars, massage parlors, and lady boys. We spent our first day exploring the town, watching tourists parasail from the beach, and gawked at sunburnt old fat men walking hand and hand with beautiful Thai girls. We are definitely back on the tourist trail. In the evening, I researched a reputable massage parlor and Andreas and I both got amazing massages for cheap. I got a Thai massage (a combination of stretching and deep tissue) and Andreas got a relaxing oil massage.

    The second day we rented a scooter and took it all around the island. Scooters are a great way to see the sights. I have not yet driven one and I don't think I want to with all the crazy drivers. Andreas' mountain biking skills really shine weaving around cars and obstacles. I totally trust Andreas and his driving- but I can't help but be on high alert the entire ride, and let out the occasional "WATCH OUT!", "SLOW DOWN!" or just a general scream. We spent a few hours swimming at a remote beach and then visited the Big Buddha statue (it is 45 meters high!) We were able to walk out of the heat and under the statue where we found some people meditating. Andreas and I both took some time to try meditating. It was a very relaxing and special experience.

    When we exited the Buddha we noticed the sky getting darker. When we started riding away we began to get pelted with wind and dirt- time to put the pack cover on. Then the rains came and Andreas and I were soaked! We made it to a cafe in Phuket Town and waited out the rain. When it finally stopped we headed back to our hotel. Except that was back over the hill into the storm. Suddenly the skies opened and a full monsoon rains started hitting us- so hard it hurt at some points. Andreas and I pushed on and arrived back at our hotel soaked through... quite the adventure. Next stop Ko Phi Phi.

    After two taxis, three flight, 22 hours in the air, and 2.5 days later, we're finally got here!

    Checked in to our room at 3am. Not the best room but for $18 a night, it'll do.

    Das typische Thailändisches essen ist erst mal Reis, getobt mit unzähligem seafood in Form von Krabbe, Tintenfisch 🐙oder, aber auch kostspieligem loobster. Als Nachttisch gibt es dann natürlich die traditionelle Kokosnuss dieses Mal in Form von Eis🍦yumyum 🙂Fun fact: Thailänder essen das Kokosnuss Eis gerne mit Mais, oder Pfannkuchen mit Banane, Kondensmilch und rohem ei. Wem es schmeckt 😀💁🏼

    Da unser Flug nach Indonesien von Phuket abfliegt, ist unser letzter Stop in Thailand Phuket. Phuket ist wohl eine der touristischsten Orte in ganz Thailand und so fühlt es sich auch an! Riesige Malls und Touristenstraßen bestimmen das Stadtbild. Da es die komplette Zeit geregnet hat, haben wir auch sonst nicht viel gesehen. Jedoch besonders hervorzuheben war der einzigartige Nachtmarkt mit allem an Essen was man sich nur vorstellen kann! Aufgrund des vielen Regens waren wir sogar im Kino in welchem man sich zunächst vor dem Film für die Königshymne erheben muss. Zum Abschluss durfte natülrich ein Besuch auf der berühmt-berüchtigten Bangla Road nicht fehlen.
    Nun geht es mit dem Flugzeug nach Jakarta/Indonesien!
