Thailand trip! | Travel

When we first stepped foot outside Phuket International Airport and were assaulted by the unbelievable heat and humidity, I wondered if that holiday in snowy Niew Bathesda would have been a better idea.

12 massages, a few fresh fruit shakes and a rather orange looking tan later I am happy to report that sunny Phuket was exactly what the doctor ordered!

The three of us (Miles, Wesley and myself) had an absolute ball and ate, swam and relaxed our butts off! Thanks Wesley for the photos of me, strange being on the ‘other side!’

    I loved looking through your amazing photos. My favourites: the local in the green t-shirt – an orthodontist’s dream; the yummy prawn dish; looking at you in that snorkle and goggles outfit – I’d LOVE to do that and the 4 th last one of the boat gliding over the clear water. I felt sorry for the little fishes in the glass though… siestog.

    Catherine, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – you are an amazing photographer. Your white balance and editing in particular is phenomenal. I’ll happily admit I’m jealous! x I went to Phuket in 1991 before it was over run and it truly is heaven on earth.

    Wow your photographs are absolutely superb !!! I feel as though I have just been to Phuket. I really need to go if this is what it actually “feels” like. And Thailand is so affordable too. !!!!

    Wow! Stunning photos. How did you snap the water shots? Did you get a water proof casing for your SLR?

    1. Catherine Mac Avatar

      No, we just went in with the camera, there are no waves in that water so was pretty safe to do so ๐Ÿ™‚
