I would love to scan my own pics in at some point just to show the beauty of the place as it was then. A gorgeous holiday I took with a friend. xx
The best holiday I ever had; Thailand. 2 weeks, £500, sun, sea, sand and lots of wind! Yes the resort was so windy, the sand kept whipping at our skin. So we decide to ditch, get the guide book out and go and find the paradise we expected. 4 hours on a smelly, stuffy train; the only two westerners on it, followed by a boat trip and then we were at our paradise island. No light pollution, no wind. The generator switched off at midnight, plunging us into complete darkness save the stars that completely covered the sky like someone had been constantly pricking it with a pin. I’d never seen so many stars; shooting stars too. The toilet was a bucket; the accommodation very basic but I didn't care. No commercialism, no high rises and no shops, cars or amusements. The beach, a bar and the sun. Perfect!
151- oops gone over again but it was just so awesome! A once in a life time expereince of which even 151 words is not enough.

You're right Lizzie, 151 words isn't enough...you'll have to blog about it later and elaborate! Sounded heavenly!ReplyDelete
I may do a picture blog but scanning pics in is not my strong point. . . . It was heavenly; just like the Bounty ads of yesteryear. xxxDelete
What a fabulous post, image and holiday, Lizzie.ReplyDelete
I'd would manage without the usual luxuries of home for a taste of paradise. Thank you for sharing this :)
Glad you liked. I'd love to share some pics on here too at some point. xDelete
Sounds like a wonderful vacation. I would love to have seen the pictures.ReplyDelete
I'm rubbish at scannning; not as simple as it first appears on our stupid printer. I'll try again though. xDelete
Sounds perfect, and it's not easy to describe perfection in less than 100 words x.ReplyDelete
Very True Lesley, if I had the pics, it may have been easier. xDelete
Sounds amazing!! I'm jealous! :)ReplyDelete
It was a lifetime ago and I would love to do it again but that's not going to happen. xDelete
Oh, I love that you took charge and got the vacation you wanted!! Love your description of the starry pin-pricked sky!!! Beautiful image!! :)ReplyDelete
Just hated getting there after Bangkok. Expected the hustle and bustle in the city but not in the resort. Best decision we made. xDelete
Sounds like perfection to me and I'm soooo jealous!ReplyDelete
It was gorgeous and I would love to do it all again but I have a feeling it doesn't exist like that anymore; it was nearly 20 years ago. OMG now I feel old!!Delete
Wow, I love your spirit of adventure! It sounds like an amazing trip!ReplyDelete
Was the best! I don't know if that spirit of adventure exists anymore? x xDelete
