After getting our visas in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, we flew to Phuket to join the rest of our team for a retreat. Phuket is an island on the southwest corner of Thailand and is known for its beaches and vacation spots. We were there for three days and spent most of the time hanging out on Kamala Beach. We swam and snorkeled in the water, built sand castles, lounged around, ate dinner, did a little shopping, and got sun burned--it's near the equator.
We also rented a snorkeling boat for a day, and they took us out to several reefs to swim among the fish. There were hundreds and hundreds of fish of many different types. We even got to feed them bread from our hands. This was the highlight of our week for me.
