... we arrived into Phuket so we had been up 22 hours at that
stage. So after the hour drive and checking in and showering, it was 3AM at
home in Australia so that’s a full 24 hours we were awake. We’re feeling the
jetlag this morning, that’s for sure! We have a lot of brochures and we have a
lot of things we are very excited to do. We’ll keep ya’ll posted.
... I met again Alain, the French-Belgian whom I had met yesterday. We spent the afternoon together, talking at length. He speaks fluent Italian, having lived in Italy. Maybe we will meet again later in the evening, allowing melatonin, since I'm addressing the topic sleep-wake cycle that has not yet fallen into place.

... police station and pay 200 Baht to get the license back. All good!
Got cleaned up, and Nina and I jumped in the car to go do a little more exploring and we found a beautiful beach to hang out at for a bit.

... then headed back to Phuket Town, it took about 25 minutes, back for more swimming in the pool!
We ate at Lotus restaurant that night, recommended by a Thai man but sadly although the food was nice it was very bland not what we had expected. We popped into a bar and had a few beers and watched the world go by, sadly our last night , the following day were off to Phi Phi Don island. Martin has a friend who lives there, George, so we would be stopping off at his restaurant to say hello.
