My awesome holiday in Phuket

For those that know me, I love traveling. So when I heard a whole bunch of my mates were heading to Phuket for 10 nights I jumped at the opportunity to join them!

We found a fantastic deal from Thompsons Tours for 10 nights, bed & breakfast, including flights from JHB to Phuket for R6900. That very same deal is still available from Computicket Travel for R7299pp.


10 nights, 10 mates, Baht, beer and beaches!

Phuket and the surrounding islands of Thailand are amazing. There is so much to do and see and it really does cater for everyone. From the couple of honeymoon who just want to chill and enjoy the sun and sand to the groups of friends who want to party!

I made notes every day on my iPhone  just to document the holiday. Makes for some good memories when I come back to read it! These daily notes might not make sense to all of you, but they do to all of us that where there!

Holiday blogging

I’m going on holiday to London, Paris and Dubai from the 21st to 30th of October. I’m going to try and blog (more photos than words actually) while I’m away, especially now that I’ve got a fancy DSLR camera to take cool pics with. :)

These are some of the highlights my wife and I are looking forward to:

  • Flying from Dubai to London in the massive Airbus A380
  • Climbing the Eiffel tower
  • Watching Chelsea take on Blackburn Rovers at Stamford Bridge – our seats are 5 rows from the pitch
  • Stamford Bridge Stadium tour
  • Stopping at the Burj Dubai to take pics (tallest building in the world)
  • Possibly having drinks at the Skybar at the Burj al Arab (7 star hotel)

I’ll be taking tons of pics and posting a few of them here on my blog as well as to my Flickr account. Any pics I take with my iPhone I’ll upload those to my Posterous blog at

Just an apology in advance – expect all my tweets, blog posts and pics over the next few days to be from my holiday, but I promise to tone down on the exclamation marks. So no “I’m in Paris!!!!!!!” tweets, I promise.
