South-East Asia has always been something of a distantly humid, tropical mystery to me. While I was traveling in Central America a few years ago, fellow backpackers’ stories painted it as the epicentre of dramatic, scandalous, wide-eyed and devastatingly beautiful stories, but somehow it continued to evade my travel plans (the closest I got was a few days in Singapore on the way home from a family gallivant in China).

But I digress – as you might have gathered from our Instagrams by now, Zanita and I have now arrived in Thailand. And what a way to experience this country’s crystal clear waters, inky clouds, and richly pigmented sky for the first time than Sri Panwa! Having been here no more than 18 hours, the number of moods that have already swept through the bay that our private villa overlooks has me buzzing – last night I spent half an hour watching a silent electrical storm make its way over headlands and passive boats, while the rain made eerie Venn circles in the pool outside. This morning’s overcast sunrise was just as breathtaking, and in the hours since then, we’ve toured the 40 acres of the resort and found appreciation for Phuket’s steamy demeanour (while pinching ourselves that we’re actually in paradise – this is it).

Aside from producing some incredible content for you all (get ready for some serious happy snap and video action) to share our experiences and fun projects we’re working on while here, I’m also impossibly excited to get stuck into authentic Thai food! Today’s mushroom and fruit-happy affair with a killer view on the side was certainly a sprinting start, and on Sunday we’re doing a cooking class so I can maybe, just maybe, taste a little paradise back home! Right?


And now, a walk through Phuket’s mind-boggling lush jungle in this easy white cotton and gold situation.

I’m definitely dreaming.
