Phuket, Thailand! Day 1
We arrived in Phuket at around 10 am after about a 2 hour flight. Getting through customs and immigration was a breeze. The trouble we found was finding our airport transfer! The area outside the airport was a zoo! We never actually found the person who was supposed to be picking us up so we just hopped in a taxi. Little did we know, we hopped in with Dale Earnhardt Jr! He was speeding all through the island. I was car sick, we were both scared at times, but we made it to our hotel safe and sound! Our room wasn’t quite ready yet, so we changed into our swim suits, had a wonderful Thai lunch and headed to the beach! The beaches here are absolutely gorgeous. We checked into our room and went to our hotel pool, complete with a swim up bar. We relaxed by the pool for a few hours and got cleaned up for dinner. We explored our little area of the island called Karon. We ate at a Thai restaurant for dinner and came back and crashed! We are looking forward to another beautiful day on this island!
