On a whim, Jeff and I took a trip to Thailand this past weekend. It is only about two hours away, maybe less. This was our first vacation while living in Singapore. I arranged for the dogs to stay at a pet resort up north for the weekend. A driver from the resort came to pick the dogs up at our apartment on Friday morning, and then we took a cab to the airport.
We got to the airport a few hours early because we actually enjoy airports. We love almost everything about traveling, actually. Airports are great spots for people-watching. This time, we just sat in the lounge and had a few drinks.
We stayed at The Royal Palm on Patong Beach, in Phuket. It was a cool little place and the staff was friendly. It was under construction so it didn't look as pretty as the photos on their website, but it was located right across the beach and near tons of shops and bars.
Oh yeah, the bathroom. It was enclosed by sliding shoji-esque doors. It was pointless to try and "close" them.
We ate at Patong Seafood for dinner on Friday night, where we got to pick our own seafood out. I ordered a drink in a coconut (the first of many that weekend). I forgot to take photos of our food, but it was delicious. Jeff ordered squid, I ordered crab.
I will post the rest of the photos shortly, but now I must go bathe the dogs. They just got dropped off by the pet resort and they look like they had a fun weekend in the dirt.
