What is your idea of the perfect vacation?
I had mentioned that I am an active traveler – I like to go about town, explore the sites, find the local hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and really discover a city. My husband and my friend were my other companions on our recent trip to Phuket and they just wanted to sit by the pool and beach. We did end up going to Nai Hairn beach which was a nice, relaxed, and relatively quiet beach. Surprisingly, sunrises and Nai Hairn Beach were my favorite parts of my Phuket trip.
But mostly I gave way to their idea of a perfect vacation and enjoyed the simple moments. We relished our private rooftop pool (seriously, SO cool especially if you are with friends or family) and the larger infinity pool.One of my favorite parts of Phuket though was witnessing the sunrise.
One of the most beautiful sunsets I ever saw was also on a boat trip in Phuket. I loved it so much that I blew up one of the pictures and made it into a photo canvas. After I saw this insane sunrise, I might have to just make one of these pictures into a picture as well.
There was simply a gradual brightening of the sky to a light gray mixed with blue and pink.
This then gave way to a bright red sun.
But the coolest part was the way the sun was reflected in the water. I have never seen the sun and the sunrise in this way.
I’m glad that I took time to enjoy the sunrise and the simpler parts of a vacation.
So take time to enjoy the simple things in a new place and you may also end up having a perfect vacation.
