Phuket is a beautiful island in southern Thailand. After we arrived by bus, we took a tuk-tuk to our hostel, Jinta Andaman. I’m not sure what Jinta means, but Andaman was because we were staying very close to the Andaman Sea. Jinta Andaman was less than a ten minute walk to Kata Beach, one of numerous beaches in Phuket.
We were very surprised to see that Kata Beach wasn’t too busy. Sure, there were a lot of people there, but we were easily able to find a place for our towels. We could’ve paid 200฿ for a lawn chair and umbrella, but we were quite content just lying on the beach. We swam in the sea, enjoyed the sunshine and walked along the beach. On Saturday, we saw this girl paragliding. It looked really neat. If the folks running it had been there one of the other days we were in Phuket, I probably would’ve done it. It looked like a really unique way to see the beach and see. I can only imagine how gorgeous the view would be from that height.
Why watch all those tv programs and movies about exotic destinations when you can just visit them yourself?
I feel as though I constantly have the travel bug. So far, my travels have taken me to different parts of Canada, the United States, Mexico, England, France and Switzerland. This time around, I am going to teach English at a Winter Camp in Korea. While I'm that far away from home, I'm hoping to explore other parts of Asia.
