Miss Gioia

Wednesday, October 15, 2008


Our last evening in Phuket, we went to a boutique hotel called Sala for dinner. We met an expat British family* on Friday night, who highly recommended the place. So we went. And wow. Glad we did.

We had been staying at a larger, well known resort with standard food and standard rooms. But this place was quite different – unique, modern design. The restaurant was right on the beach, so we had cool breezes blowing as we ate. The food was outstanding, perhaps the best of the trip. Gioia even got to see a kitty cat, so everyone had a nice evening.

If we ever come back to Phuket, we will probably book one of this place’s 79 villas. It was really, really nice.

*As a side note, this couple had just sold their businesses in London and moved to Phuket six weeks ago with their kids. The little boy (who was about four) asked me: Are you English? I said no, I am from the United States. He looked at me strangely and then said: But if you aren’t English, then why is your skin white? Chuckle.

Wow. I've just stumbled upon your blog and at first I was struck by the pictures...I've never been out of the United States...but looking at your pictures of Phuket make me feel like I'm there.

And then I went back and realized that you started your blog just before you adopted your beautiful little girl. I wish I had time to go through your entries and read the whole story. Thank you so much for sharing it. Just what I've read so far makes my heart smile.
