8/1 - The team arrived in Phuket, and while waiting for the fifth fellow to fly in a few hours later, we took in the first sunset on a roof-top Thai restaurant with the most amazing Mai Tais & Thai food
L-R - Martin, Jaye, me, Adam; John was en route, and Faton couldn't join due to visa issues
8/2 - Karon Beach; Phuket, Thailand
8/3 - Yamu Point; Phuket, Thailand
8/4 - Karon Beach, before the storm (Walked back home after seeing these clouds - upon taking two steps into the lobby, the rain caught up with me!)
8/4 - Karon Beach, after the storm
8/5 - Patong Beach; Phuket, Thailand
8/6 - Phi Phi Island, Thailand
8/6 (8/7 I was in the air flying at sunset....) - Phi Phi Island, Thailand
Most of the week had monsoon-like rainstorms. Here's a view of the ocean waves as another storm approaches - check out the 5-6 layers of breaking waves!
8/6/2015 - another monsoon-like rainstorm made for rough waters. The 2+ hour boat ride from Phi Phi to Phuket was like this the entire time. I kept myself together, but nearly 2/3 the boat was vomiting. Oh yeah - this video was taken from my seat on the middle deck.
The residential parts of Phi Phi Island are lined with beach-front restaurants and bars. At night, many of them have fire shows like this.
