The Aussie wedding season is winding down for winter so I recently took the opportunity to recharge my own batteries on the beautiful Thai island of Koh Samui.

The Lady and I hadn't been to Thailand before so we were keen to explore the sights, sounds and FOOD! We packed a lot into a week including elephant trekking, Muay Thai boxing, temples, fish exfoliation(!), massages, LOTS of food, and of course a few ladyboy cabaret shows!

It's often said how beautiful Thailand is and how friendly the people are, and we were delighted to find out first hand that it's all true. From the moment we landed at Koh Samui Airport (which is probably the prettiest airport you will ever see!) the Thai people made us feel welcome wherever we went, from the humble, ramshackle beachside restaurants to the most exclusive hotel resorts.

I tried to keep my photography to a minimum (after all I was trying to relax!) but I couldn't help taking a few shots which I thought would be nice to share and hopefully inspire you to visit Thailand as well. Perhaps for a destination wedding!
