Adventure Honeymoon part II - We´re still alive

After a 32 hour journey and 56 hours without sleep we made it to Phuket unharmed but really tired. We took the nightbus from Bangkok to Phuket and arrived after a thirteen hour drive.

The sun was beating down, the ocean was blue, the leaves of the palmtrees blowing in the wind and we immediately forgot our worries.

Despite all the unrest in Thailand and one of the protesters being shot we didn´t notice too much of it down here on the streets. All public congregations were banned and life goes on as normal for the tourists after the airport´s opened again.

As of now we are officially on holidays. We noticed that we didn´t have a care in the world and actually had no idea what day of the week it was when we went out for dinner just now.

Hope you´re all doing well. Have a splendid week.
