Thailand (part 1)… Evason & Bon Island, Ruwai and the South tip of Phuket

Back in September we realised that my partner would almost certainly be away working for Christmas with the way his leave and rostering system works, so he decided to bid for a trip that we might both like to go on, rather than lose any sleep over it (it’s the airline industry-so it goes with […]

However, I wanted to […]
