Life of Phu – week one

The sun is setting on my first week in Phuket.

We’ve found a house, had a little explore and everything is in order for my first day at my new school tomorrow.

I have spent the week with one of my best friends who stopped over for the week on her way from Australia back to the UK.  We’ve been basically camping in the new house as we haven’t organised moving the furniture up from Hat Yai yet (the one major thing still left to sort out…).

As I had a week off to move house we took the opportunity to be tourists for a while, having a little explore of the south of the island, visiting some beaches, the Big Buddha, eating lots of Thai food (which I am falling back in love with all over again) and even spending the night boozing on Bangla road (had to be done) and passing out in what is probably the cheapest hostel in Patong!  My camera is back in Hat Yai so photos were limited to my iPhone (which didn’t come out in Patong with us) and what I could steal from Helen, but here are a few snapshots of what I got up to in my first week in Phuket.


First day of school tomorrow – wish me luck!
