A couple weekends ago I went to Phuket, Thailand with some friends. We found a really great deal and just decided to go for it. Initially it was just four, but then two friends wanted to come, and two more, so we ended up being eight. We got there on a Friday night and took a taxi to Kata beach, and the following day wandered around Phuket, checking out the viewpoint, having seafood, swimming in the ocean. The second day we took the ferry to Phi Phi island and did some snorkeling in a couple places. Here's a view from the shore of Maya Bay, which was rather crowded.
I haven't had much time for blogging recently, since it's crunch time on my thesis. I was working even on the brief holiday (that's 'vacation' for all you Americans) I took to the US for my brother's wedding.
It's always a fabulous trip, visiting Silver Lake in the summer. This year was no exception. Despite a few rainy days, the weather was accommodating enough to allow for some good lake time. With nieces and nephews multiplying it makes for some fun times!
And the wedding was great. We even got to set off Chinese wish lanterns. But my favorite part was being able to spend time with family and friends - what a great trip! Now here's to writing!
