Jen and Oliver were nice enough to offer to keep Avery for a couple of days so we could go on a date somewhere nearby. We decided to visit Phuket for a relaxing, beachy getaway. It was beautiful! We arrived in the evening and hung out at the pool. The following day we explored the beach before hiring a driver and visited the Big Buddha, Wat Chalong, and the downtown area.
The next day we crossed off one of our bucket list items and went to an elephant sanctuary, which was amazing! Then we spent the evening on Bangla Walking Street taking in the sights. I wish we’d had one more day so we could have visited the Phi phi islands, but overall it was an incredible experience!
