Dreaming of... the Similan Islands

As I look out the window from my desk at work, I see grey clouds drifting across the sky and the wind blowing the trees, and can think of nothing better than waking up in a warm bamboo bungalow next to Josh on a near-deserted island, walking out onto the golden sand and jumping in the ocean for a morning swim with the hot sun beating down on me.

I came across the Similan Islands on this great blog Mr and Mrs Globe Trot, which is the diary of American couple Julia and Yuriy, who got married then took off overseas for six months visiting all sorts of off-the-beaten-track places like Laos and Ukraine as well as some popular tourist spots like London and Paris. They have long-since returned, but still have a backlog of posts which I follow religiously because it's the kind of trip we want to do sometime in the next couple of years, except we want to see more of Europe, the UK and America rather than the Asian countries they've been to.

But, I think I can make an exception for Thailand, especially if it includes a trip to the Similan Islands. Check out Julia's post here - that would be the life wouldn't it?
