From the airport, we took a cab to Phuket Town, and eventually to our hotel. Out of the car window, I took pictures with my new camera. The ground outside was free of litter, and drivers on the road almost never honked. This was a nice change from the street culture of India. We checked into our hotel with a swimming pool and clean sheets. I was surprised that I could actually walk on the bathroom floor with bare feet. In India, most of the bathroom floors are wet and grubby. What a change!
After settling in, I jumped into the swimming pool and felt the cool water on my relaxed skin. When swimming was over, I walked with my family to eat a nice lunch of delicious Thai food, after which we walked back to the hotel for a four hour nap.
After so much hard travel, Thailand feels so good and so relaxing. Six months have gone by and we are officially half way done with our world trip. I think the hardest traveling is over and I’m excited to explore the rest of Thailand. Tomorrow we will take a boat to an island, Koh Phi Phi, where we will relax on a beach for however long we want! I can’t wait!
