Kata, Karon and Kamala beaches - Lazy days

sunny 38 °C

Just a quick update, we have visited the aforementioned beaches in and around Phuket. Kamala beach has probably been the quietest and nicer of the three but having said that all three are stunning! Kamala has been very peaceful and as you will see from the photographs we have had most of the beach to ourselves. We have also had a few Thai massages to help ease the burden of sunbathing and these have been well earned after our first months' travel.

We are off to Mai Khao (slightly further north) on Tuesday for some basic beach hut accommodation. The huts are tiny bamboo structures on the beach and are very primitive. We are also looking forward to this mini Robinson Crusoe adventure and this will lead us nicely up to Christmas.

We very much hope everyone at home is enjoying the Christmas build up. We have seen a few Christmas trees here and who knows what we'll be doing, eating and drinking on the day itself, but for now, life is a beach!

Thinking of you all shopping, going out and having fun. We will try to contact as many of you as we can on Christmas Day. (Quick note to family, 4 postcards from India have been sent in total, but there seems to be a lag, please let us know when/if(!) they arrive).

Love to everyone,

Ross and Charlie.

Wow, wow and double wow!! The beaches look wonderful and you both look so fit and well. Your move to the beach hut sounds interesting and we eagerly await a description of what 'primative' means.
Just so you know that things can be pretty damn exciting here in the UK, Branston Baked Beans are two for one this week at Tesco in Southend.
Keep the photographs coming, they're terrific.
Bye for now, keep safe,
Mum and Dad B xx
