June 10-21 jbr

Hi all

Well I have got it bad, real bad, just returned this morning from 11days in LOS, and counting down to the next trip already.

We didnt do much at all so sorry if this is a bit boring. This was most definately an R&R trip for me.

June 10

Hi Ho Hi Ho its off to Phuket I go. So its off to Sydney Airport to meet up with Mr & Mrs Lozza. Flying Jetstar direct from Sydney. Now its been awhile since I have flown with them, as I have taken advantage of some cheap sales with thai and Air Asia. Flight was great, food good, Cabin crew great, no complaints from me, I must admit Jetstar is still my airline of choice from Syd to Phuket, you just cant beat a direct flight.

Arrived Phuket 7.30pm, pickup up by Daj, and its off to Salathai

Slight hickup with our booking, as we had 3 delux rooms booked ground floor, and they gave us 2 upgrades to junior Suites, problem being, we want ground floor deluxe. Oh well , one down stairs, 2 upstairs, I moved down stairs to deluxe room 2 days later.

Good hotel, friendly staff, great location, nice pool, good breakies so no issues staying here.

After a quick Shower, its off to change money and get something to eat and a few drinks at the Tattoo Bar outside Patong Tattoo.

Mr Lozza and I booked in for Tattoos the following day. Well we never actually made it to dinner lol, but a good time and a few drinks were had by all

So, day 2, it buckets down rain in the morning while we are at Breaky and we watch the streets flood again. Never mind its still nice and warm. Within and hour, we are off to get tattoos done. Very happy with the result.

Pretty much chilled out for the rest of the day. That night we met up with cathy and gary and a few other TA people, at Nickys for dinner and drinks, funny night with good friends

Day 3, another quite day, with a few drinks and relaxing. We had organised to Meet up with, more friends from TA in Kata, for dinner at Two Chefs, this place never fails to impress me. Another fantastic night was had.

Day 4 was suppose to be PST Phang Nga tour, but due to weather PST had to postpone it. No problems another relaxing day by the pool.

Day 5, Mrs Lozza and I wnt for a 3 hr Spa treatment at Thara Patongs Day Spa, OMG why have I not done this before!!! Steam room, Floral bath, body scrub, massage and facial. Just to die for

And other dinner with friends at the All Natural resturant In Phuket town, what great food, another excellent night.

Day 6

1st casualty, one down sick. Not from anything we ate (we all ate the same, ) but a bit of a virus going around.

More chilling by the pool.

I had also had other friends arrive the night before so, we went off did at bit of shopping, from the bar stool in Sailor bar, bit of lunch, and more pool time

Day 7

More relaxing, more drinkies, more laughter, Casualty 1 still down, A few of us not 100% but not too bad either

Day 8

More of the same

Day 9

Finally got to do our day trip with PST, another great day, with the fantastic crew of PST, never get tired of Phang Nga Bay

Day 10

Same as the other days, pool, chilling, drinkies and eating

Day 11

Sad sad day, its my last day in LOS for this trip. More pool time, last drinks at Sailor Bar, last massage, and sadest of all, saying goodbye to the gang as they were all staying on longer.

Good flight home, arrived home to rain in Sydney, but not so warm

So as said, not alot done this trip, but exactly how it was suppose to be. Yes we got quite alot of rain in the 1st week, but didnt spoil the trip at all.

104 days and counting to the next trip, to celebrate my birthday in October

Glad you had a relaxing time. Don't think we will get back to Thailand this year, looks like Malaysia for end of year sales. Definitely Phuket next year though.
