Thank you for our blog and wall messages everyone.
We've had a nice couple of days in Kata,a place south of Phuket island. We sailed down on Bill's 3 cabin katermerange (please exquse spelling)which was lovely. Took us 6 hours to sail but then only 1 hour to drive back!
Once we arrived in Kata we checked into a little beach hotel we'd booked
on the net the night before. It was Ok but then we were only spending the night.
Once we got changed we headed out with Bill to the opening ceremony of the king's sailing regatta. Was located in a snazzy 5 star beach hotel so Danny and I wore our best outfits but spent most of the night walking round the pool side
buffet (it felt about half a mile long) by the end of the night we had eaten 3 plates full of food!(My travelling diet has not yet started lol) Didn't have too many drinks as I've got a cold - typical eh? - Think it's because Danny likes air con on 24/7!
Once we returned to the villa we had a hire car dropped off - did a bit of window shopping, manicure and pedicure for 6 pounds! (Don't look that great as went for natural gloss colour - hoping they will grow in the sun) Had traditional Thai dinner tonight at the mall and have just watched "catch me if you can" with Leonardo Di Caprio in the lounge. We need to pack our bags up tonight as we're heading down to Krabi tomorrow for 3 nights.
Although not forecast we really hope the sun comes out soon- we're both soo pastie (good job we're not gone for just two weeks!) It has not stopped raining since about 6pm tonight :( like a swamp at the villa!
By the way,if anyone has skype,please add us: meika.aspell - we can then talk for free like we've been doing with our families!
Will write a blog in Krabi.
Love you lots,
Meika and Danny
