I took a simple two-week holiday in Thailand over Christmas and New Year’s 2005-2006. With a travel partner I spent Christmas Eve in a beach chair listening to the gentle waves on the famed tourist island of Phuket, went by boat to a hidden rock-climbing community in Krabi Province on the mainland, hiked hundreds of steps to the top of a great karst tower, and on New Year’s Day finally saw the legendary capital city Bangkok. The heart of winter is hot in Thailand but I managed to keep my insulin cool and have some fantastic experiences. This was my very first trip to the Land of Smiles but it was one that inspired me to return again and again in the ensuing years.
