Playing in paradise...

Its been quite a while ( read 6 months ) that I had a real vacation. I have been going on day trips but the wanderer in me desparately needs a long vacay away from the hustle bustle of life. As that is not possible as of now since my angel is just six weeks old, I continue dreaming about my good old carefree days when I could laze whenever I wanted!!

Since I have taken break from my clinic and started the real job of being a mom, I have developed a ridiculous habit of going through my old pictures. Well there are so many of them that my folder is not over yet, in six weeks!!

Today I was going through my Phuket folder, I saw the beautiful pictures of sightseeing and decided to do a post on it. Phuket is a pretty large island in the Andaman Sea. Its the perfect amalgamation of scenic beauty, nightlife, shopping and religion!! As I write down this post, I came up with the idea of writing about the shocking night life in my next!!

We left for the city tour early in the morning after a hearty breakfast. Our first stop was Karon view point where we could catch a bird's eye view of all the three prominent beaches of Phuket... Patong, Kata and Karon beach. We were staying in Patong, and that was the farthest from that view point.

Our next stop and probably my favourite was Promthep Cape. This was the place where the Andaman Sea united with the Indian Ocean. Apart from breathtaking views, I was fascinated by the number of windmills there. I have always loved windmills, the first ones I saw were in Puri when I was probably three years old. Unfortunately, there were no digi cams at that time to take insignificant pictures according to my Mom. I saw plenty of these wind turbines after that but could never get clicked with them. So one more wish of mine was fulfilled here :)

wish I could be on one those yachts!!
