I was all set for vegging for ten days but Mateo was excited to rent a car for a couple days and do some sightseeing - I'm so glad we did! Old Town Phuket is lovely and I didn't know there was Portuguese influence in this part of Thailand.
My Ella loves street food as much as I do!
We love going to markets, and the kids were intrigued by the dead chicken and guts.....
Another day we ventured north to Phang Gha, we enjoyed the stilt village and seafood by the water...this area has gorgeous limestone hills jutting out of the water. We didn't do the tourist boat trip, we didn't feel good about taking Lucia on it b/c there are no life vests her size. We'll be back though....
the Thai aunties were so sweet to them.
Thai water dancing & fire tricks at hotel lobby was cool
Fishing was a great activity for the kids....Niko was too busy eating the bread for the fish.
The highlight of each day was feeding and riding baby elephant LUCKY. I don't know what happened to JUMBO but this elephant was very friendly and even KISSED Ella!
We thought the little hike to see the Bang Pae waterfalls at the National Park was gorgeous!
Ella loves lists as much as her Mama,
I love her vacation list....
Best part was being with the family, wonderful bonding time.
Second best thing was great Thai food.
Thai Beef Salad is my fav.
Trying a new dish, yellow curry noodle with crabmeat
Mateo found this amazing local institution in Old Town Phuket run by two sisters. We LOOOOVED it!
My favorite resort restaurant was GINGA by the beach:
Despite having Satay and Peanut sauce EVERY meal, Ella still seems excited to eat them every time:
I loved unplugging from the world, but here we
are in a taxi in Singapore
and connected again!
