Place I have traveled to:
When we first chose our honeymoon, we decided we wanted to go to Hawaii. I mean, who wouldnt, its beautiful. But, alas, no condos available that week through my parents timeshare. Hmmm, so now what? We could have either gone with some exotic locale where we would have to pay for our AC or a beautiful (and AC furnished) condo in a place we would never again get the opportunity to see...Thailand. It wasnt even on our honeymoon radar, but we traveled the 21 hours to get there and enjoyed every single second of our 10 day stay!
The first few days were a sleep adjustment to say the least, but I got very used to Thai "American" television that came on at 3 am. We'll say I caught up on a lot of wrestling surprisingly :) We enjoyed the cuisine of the Italian restuarant at the resort because I have a super picky husband and after 10 days we wanted some "American" food :) The sun also got me badly and I ended up with some crazy tan lines. But even with these mishaps, we were able to take in the majestic beauty that is Phuket, Thailand. One of the most beautiful beaches in the whole world.
Thailand is the land of smiles, and the people were amazingly friendly. Everything (even in the resort) was cheap, cheap, cheap. The weather was amazing, the scenery was to die for, and we didnt miss Hawaii one bit. We got to see 2 countries, Japan and Thailand, and immerse ourselves in a culture we knew we wouldnt see again. It was a great trip and recommend it to anyone who wants an experience they wont forget.
