Its been a while since the last post and so much has happened since. When we left Bangkok we had planned to stay in Patong or Kata beach for at least a week before looking at apartments. On the bus ride down I figured i'd look onilne and get a head start and ended up finding a place in Rawai beach. I'm so glad I looked as i found a great space on the southern tip of the island at a really good price. We are about 1000ft from the beach away from the tourist madness that Patong and Kata/Karon beaches have. We've got a balcony overlooking a farm and even a motorbike to cruise around the island with. We even have a kitchen with a kettle and electric stove so we can try our hand at cooking some pad thai.
During our week here, we've discovered Nai Harn beach (among others) and met some great locals. I think we will be spending lots of time at Nai Harn and Promthep Cape as well as a secret beach not on the map. ;) I'll post some more sunrise/sunset shots in the next month or so as i'm working on a mini project. My dear mother only has about a week left with us and during that time we will be going to james bond island also known as Khao Phing Kan and the Phuket Town night market. I'll probably make a blog post out of those in the coming days so stay tuned.
In this post are some images from our last week on the island. Enjoy!
