|Sharon at Singapore Airport.|
|Sharon having breakfast by the sea. This is the torture of everyday life in Patong!|
|Life is hard starting each day this way...|
|Where it all happens! One of the colourful main streets of Patong.|
|Me - just before having the first of many of the best Tom Yum Goon soups that I've ever had - in Phuket.|
|Sharon taking in the sites of Patong's night life.|
|Having a few Singha beers at the local "Irish" pub!|
|Playing with the locals.|
|Me playing Connect 4 with Jimmy.
Yes we realise that this isn't everyone's idea of partying!
|Sharon playing Connect 4 with Jimmy.|
|Still at the Irish Pub!|
|The view of Patong, Karon and Kata Beaches (top to bottom).|
|Sharon taking in the view.|
|Sharon getting over the fact that there is a sign saying Paris 28,000 kms!|
|Me knackered after driving the Jeep around Phuket - They are completely crazy on the road!|
|Sharon at Phuket Zoo.
Not one of the best zoo's that we've ever seen - but I guess this is a third world country!
|Jo with her new friend!|
|Poor Monkey being made to hold up the welcome sign...|
|At the crocodile show.|
|Crazy Thai man!|
|Strong Thai man!|
|The big mummy Tiger... (sigh)
Isn't she beautiful!
|Me in my element
"Can I have a job here please?"
|ooohh how cute!
The one month old Tiger cub that is!
|Taking my life in my hands... god they are so beautiful|
|I'm in shock here I think!|
|Patong Beach, our new home... Just kidding, but wouldn't it be nice!|
|Sharon in the milky warm surf at Patong Beach|
|She never gets out!|
|Kata Beach - home of the best restaurant I've ever been to - the Boat House. A must for everyone going there, I fully recommend the lobster, the fillet steak and the mango crepes... Heaven!|
|One of the bears at the so called "Wild life sanctuary", it's a bit lame by our high standards though!|
|A Snow bear at the same park. Poor things have a horrible home no bigger than our kitchen with hardly anything in it (apart from cement)... Very sad!|
|One of the local temples.|
|Sharon inside the temple cave.|
|Elephant trekking in the forest! Was certainly an experience riding these properly as I did... Not the most comfortable animals to ride let me tell you! Think I'll stick to horses!|
|Feeding the elephant that we rode on bananas. I was offered a job as a guide for 50 baht per day (about $2.50) which I turned down as a bad career move...|
|This one was very greedy and pushed our elephant out of the way too get the rest of the bananas that I had!|
|A river that we trekked through on the elephants.|
|Sharon feeding our elephant.|
|Sharon and I in the "cool" water at a forest waterfall.|
|Couldn't have been too cold as we were in there for a while!|
|Yep, still here... well it was 36 degrees out of the water, can you blame us for taking our time getting out!|
|Sharon being a water baby!|
|Some of the islands off Phuket.|
|More islands... There are hundreds of them!|
|This was in a cave when we went to see James Bond Island - it was in Gold Finger I'm told!
Sorry I couldn't work out how to turn this photo around...
|A limestone cave that you can drive a longboat through!|
|Inside the cave.|
|Some people rowing through the limestone caves... We relaxed in the longboat and watched!|
|An amazing village built on the water.|
|Same village where we had lunch!
This is the bit that the tourists get to see...
|Where the locals live.
We had to sneak in!
|Don't think that I'll be moving here anytime soon... However it does have it's own school and a mosque!|
Sadly we had to leave and come back to a sunny but cold Sydney...
