Sunset over Scarborough beach

I went for a drive and found myself at Scarborough beach in Perth,

Western Australia. I had been told this place was great by a guy I had been working with.

It doesn't disappoint.
It was almost a spiritual experience. Hundreds of people were on the beach and esplanade, just peacefully waiting for the sun to set and wasn't it worth it!

I  stayed at The Fusion suites Hotel in Bangkok on my recent holiday in Thailand.
This place looked awesome from the photos!

It has a modern industrial feel with a touch old and traditional. The walls are bare concrete which give the place a cool feeling and there is wood furniture which adds some warmth and in the larger suites there is a Chesterfield lounge ( I love these old style leather lounges).
I chose the jacuzzi suite, which has a covered outdoor area with the jacuzzi and a double swing seat. It's definitely worth a look for the price.

There are meals and room service available and the menu has a range of items which sound cover quite a few tastes.

It has a good location with plenty of other restaurants nearby.

The view from one of the swimming pools at Anantara Si Khao resort in Trang province Thailand. Such a beautiful place! Our room had a sea view which was similar to this. Lots of things to do and a 3 restaurants to eat at. Good food and an awesome breakfast buffet!

Jomtien night markets

The night markets at Jomtien just south of Pattaya are very nice to visit. Lots of stalls selling all sorts of  food.. fish, bbq, fresh fruit and drinks. There are clothes and souvenirs and all the rest of your normal market things. There are also a few outdoor bars and restaurants,  which overlook the fairly quiet Jomtien  beach road and beach.

Anantara Vacation Club Phuket Resort

I was lucky enough to be able to stay at Anantara Vacation Club Phuket Resort for 5 days. It is on the north west of Phuket and near the beautiful Mai Khao Beach, pictured above. We hired a car so we could get around the island as this was my first time in Phuket, even though the resort had all we needed.

We stayed in a suite and it was beautiful. I will add some more photos to show you.

The bedroom

The suite had a full kitchen which we used to make some of our meals. There are also a restaurant and an outdoor pizza bar. We tried one of the pizzas and I have to tell you it was an excellent traditional style thin crust pizza of prosciutto and rocket.
The restaurant also had theme nights. On the night we arrived the theme was Barbeque...very nice!
On another night the theme was seafood buffet.

This is the living area with the kitchen at the back of the room. The living area has a 50 inch TV and a stereo and TV's in the bedrooms.

The bathroom has two sinks, one each side, a huge shower, beautiful toiletries and that huge 2 -3 person bath.

Step inside my office.

 I call this my Bangkok Corporate office, on Sukhumvit road near Asoke BTS....LOL!
I loved this image when I saw it, Bangkok is such a city of contrasts. There is old and run-down and new and shiny. There is old world and new world and everything in between. It's what makes Bangkok and Thailand such an amazing place to visit or spend a greater length of time.

The photo shows a point between old and rundown and some exciting new development taking shape.
