A World Away From Here

I was on vacation for the back half of March.  AK and I went to the other side of the world and met up with friends in Hong Kong, followed by Thailand.  An amazing experience.  While the trip has nothing to do with Dallas/Fort Worth, I still wanted to share a snap from each place.  (I’m debating on making a travel section of this blog.)

The flight from DFW to Hong Kong is a very long 17 hours. We were in a bulkhead row, so thankfully there was lots of room to stretch our legs.  I would say the view from The Peak Sky Terrace was worth the long journey.  Even with the hazy, foggy skies.

We spent 6 days in Phuket, Thailand. One of the first things I learned about the place is that the ‘h’ is silent, so its pronounced “Pu-ket”.  The other is that Phad Thai (again the silent ‘h’) isn’t spicy until you add your own chili seasonings to your preferred tastes.  I skipped the chilies because they don’t agree with me, but I thoroughly enjoyed the limey peanuty goodness.

We took a private boat tour around the Andaman Sea and discovered many beautiful places. The one that really stuck out to me was Koh Panyee, a floating fishing village. It’s literally built on the side of a cliff.

Anyway, I shall now return you to normal D/FW programming.  I’m finding it hard to get out there alone, without my photo adventuring buddy, but I will soon!
