This will be my last post from Thailand. Everything will be back to normal (by our standards) on Monday. The trip has been once in a lifetime, real eye opener of an adventure. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of cliches I could use to describe my holiday.
It’s been a great and memorable trip with Betty and my two sisters. We started in Bangkok and were dropped smack dab in the middle of the ongoing protests just days before all hell broke loose, police moved in and shots were fired.
From there we flew to Chiang Mai where there was a bout with some angry, angry bacteria, and then it was onto Phuket; one of the most beautiful places on earth.
We stayed at The Surin in Phuket, a hotel that was completely destroyed and then rebuilt after the horrific Tsunami that hit Thailand on Boxing Day of 2004.
This hotel was easily the most stunning hotel I’ve ever stayed in. And I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels. And motels. And one thing that looked suspiciously like a women’s prison.
The only downside to The Surin was … well … you’ll see.
Take a look …
Coming up next week on The Art of Doing Stuff, I have a giveaway, a look at Thailand’s Risky Market, a tutorial on how to patch drywall and more.
And don’t forget to print out your official Oscar Ballot to fill out before Sunday night’s Oscars. I’ll be right there watching it with you.
Have a good weekend!
