Tuesday 8th January. Train to Phuket.
Unbelievably we have had a more ‘exciting’ day today. That’s NOT a good thing.
We are sitting in the restaurant of our four star hotel at 9.30pm in Kata beach Phuket. It has been the most exciting, amazing, scary, outrageous and frustrating day we would not like to repeat. Sitting here now it’s funny but 12 hours ago it was very different.
We have had about 2 hours sleep in two days so this will be brief.
Kidnapping by bus company, extortion, abysmal initial hotel and marine stingers summarises our day. !
Delightfully happy and relieved…and safe now. Will put more details later.
