Thailand 2003

October 26 2003 Tammay and I travelled from Heathrow to Kuala Lumpur where we met up with Tom Jeans.

During the trip I shot with slide film in my SLR. The colour and clarity in the photos, when viewed through a slide viewer, was incredibly good but it has meant they have proved a little too difficult to scan for my website... I really should look into that!


Karon Villa Phuket Beach Resort & Spa

October 27 We travelled from Kuala Lumpur to Phuket where we stayed on Karon Beach at Karon Villa Phuket Beach Resort & Spa (509 Karon Beach, Phuket 83100 Thailand - now called Mövenpick Resort & Spa).

While on Phi Phi we stayed in a small hut located right on the beach. This was basically the view from the door.
