Last night in Phuket

As I sit down to write this I am reflecting over the last 14 months of our life here in Phuket, Thailand and all the adventures we have had, mostly great, good and amazing and a few not so wonderful. It's almost hard to imagine life back in the UK again. I have thought as far as France and that is it. Imagined the joy of seeing and cuddling my little nephew for the first time and hugging my family once again.

We have met so many amazing people and made dozens of new friends.
If I thought this was it, I would be rather depressed but the plan is to come back. We have a few cards to play out over the next six months which will hopefully mean we can come back over the winter. With that in mind we have managed to leave a couple of boxes with our long suffering friends, so have avoided having to ship anything more than one small box back. It will be touch and go on the weight limit at the airport though so not sure how that will be. We have tried to be careful but it is not easy for a family of four to pack their last 14 months into a 20kg bag each!

We have spent the day today downloading some podcasts for the journey, relaxing by the pool and eating out with our friends this evening. Tomorrow we don't have to leave for the airport until 7pm so we have the whole day to soak up the sun and swim in the pool.
This will probably be my last blog post for a while. It has served it's purpose to keep family and friends informed of our nomadic life and will also be a great source of reference to look back on in years to come.
