8:14am – Now I’m hungry so I head out for the breakfast run. Not entirely sure where I’ll go, there are so many restaurants close by with authentic Thai food it’s amazing. The weather is so nice I may head into Phuket Town and stop by the fresh market, grab some food and go to the park….

9:00am – Got some breakfast and ate it in the park. It’s a popular park with local Thai’s, soccer games are on every morning, people jog around the footpaths, there is exercise equipment around the park, huge cat fish dominate the water ways and they’re really fat because every one feeds them.

Can you believe that the best and most consistent coffee comes from 7-11? Well it’s my favorite any way. Not every 7-11 has ALL-CAFE but I have taken note which stores within a close vicinity to the condo have it and marked them on Google maps. Coffee drinking is serious business.

10:10am – Drop into the condo to pickup my towel and get some board shorts on ready for the beach. This morning I ride north to Layan Beach. It’s about a 40 minute ride on the moto, and the weather is perfect for the beach.
