In Thailand For The Umpteenth Time But This One Truly Was Special #PhuketDiaries

I like the way life plays games with us and everything that happens or does not happen has something good in store for us. I have often wondered despite having individually travelled to the farthest corners of the planet why me and mr husband have never been able to club our international trips ever. Call it early responsibilities or just the stars this has always made us enjoy the beauty of the place a little less than we would have in each other’s arms. But somehow it didn’t happen as we were too busy fortifying our careers or fulfilling the family duties and we had no regrets about it as well. Perhaps as it was meant to begin now for us and this was an absolute perfect beginning.

I have often told Hubby that if I have to make a wish, it shall be to take a world tour with him and this birthday he just commenced the materialisation of my dream(we’ll have a prolonged world tour together you see) as he gifted me a holiday in the serene islands and beaches of Thailand. Though I have been to the country umpteen number of times, this time it was most special as it was with the two loves of my life.

Undoubtedly it came at a very short notice....but eventually it turned out to be a dream holiday. We had boarded Singapore Airlines from Mumbai and their hospitality as always was bang on. Little one enjoyed the toys and art kits they gifted him across different flights. Connecting transfers were smooth and we reached Phuket early next morn. Since we were putting up in Hyatt Palace(their out of the way hospitality made our trip so much more comfortable) right across the main beach -Patong it took us less than 30 mins to hit it in full vigour.

For the next few days we lead a nomadic life exploring the various adorable islands with unparalleled beauty and aesthetic grace and striking off every single beach from our bucket list and putting up at different resorts and experiencing night life for the scattered towns. Krabi shall remain my personal Favorite from all of them as I was totally smitten by its old world charm and warmth.

Back in Phuket, shopping gave me a true high and Jungceylon Mall and its adjacent Bangla Road were my adda for most of the evenings when we were in Phuket. Eating was the only difficulty I faced and had to even be put under medication for a severe stomach infection but I guess it is to each his own. I have had this struggle in every part of the world.

One of the best memories of Phuket forever etched on my heart is The Unbelievable Dolphin and Seal Show. The way the Dolphin’s painted or the seal performed Yoga made me shout like a child in excitement and happiness. The seal even chose to kiss me. I guess she loved my excitement.

I remain grateful to Hubby for treating me like a princess for the entire trip and buying me the premium tickets for this show where I can pat the back and touch the friendly and loving dolphins along with enjoying their out of the world acrobatics.

Another high of this trip was that I overcame my fear of swimming in oceans and enjoyed doing it to the core. Snorkelling eluded me once again as they didn’t allow S and sonny to come on board for they weren’t good swimmers and so I decided to abandon it one last time.

We flew back again via Singapore and spent the whole day there. Journey back home was equal fun though we have already started to miss our Perfect Vacation at a Perfect Destination! With a promise to soon nail together

another destination to our travel clipboard, we locked the precious memories of this memorable vacation forever in our hearts.
