WhooHoo...my turn now! Flight # D7 2715...leaving 5/9/11...

........and taking me back to my beloved Phuket and Khao Lak (with a short stop in Kuala Lumpur) so excited I just had to share it

LOL ;-)

After a very full on year with 2 kids weddings, all the in-laws and out-laws coming to stay with us for the weddings, my Daughter and her family with my beautiful grand children leaving to live in Austria for a while, very stressful for me :-(

and being laid up for 2 months earlier in the year with a torn calf muscle, (very painful) this is going to be a much welcome holiday for us :-)

can't wait to get back and see our beautiful Thai friends, drink cocktails, eat yummy banana pancakes, lots of massages and just being there....

cheers guys and happy hols to all of you going soon too

all the best

Mossy :-)

Only Aussie tourists in Thailand nowadays?

I remember there were a lot of brits and nordics :-)

The first are like italians, without money, but the nordics and the germans are still very rich!

I assume all the trials to get chinese and japs failed, they hate beaches...

Khao Lak is becoming increasingly more popular with our friends Down Under these days in the Wet Season as it is their Winter, they have glorious World Class beaches to die for, they don't mind the wet, they get great accommodation at vastly reduced prices - and they have impeccably good taste. :-))

All true about the Aussies loving Khao Lak in the wet season which is our winter. Accommodation is a great price but the best thing is .......not many people around, you can have the beach and the pool just about to yourself. We live 5 minutes from Sydney beaches but in summer we travel over 2 hours each way to find a quiet beach. Go to Khao Lak in our winter and we are right on the beach every day bliss............

Not all Aussies are beach lovers, our friends are deffinate city people but aim to convert them soon lol

we live 5 mins from a beautiful beach too, the only problem here in WA is it is so bloody windy, you get the Fremantle Doctor (sea breeze) and it blows your head off some days, haha

Khao Lak is just beautiful and wet season is a great time for us to visit (come rain or shine) and seems like more Aussies are discovering it now for a much welcome 'real' beach holiday away from all the hype in Phuket

when we were there last year there was a good mix of all nationalities which was good, we didn't find many Aussies at all, I was tempted to sit at the pool bar and call out "aussie aussie aussie" to see if any one replied 'oi oi oi" LOL :-)
