Sandy's 30th birthday

We spent Sandy's 30th birthday (16th June) at the Six Senses Evason Spa in Phuket, Thailand. Strangely enough at the same time Mum was spending her 60th birthday in a spa in Wales!

We arrived late at night and the funky entrance tunnel ...

led into a stunning reception sala

Sandy enjoyed a Steam and Sauna, Traditional Thai Massage, Natural Thai Facial, Scalp Massage, Thai Herbal Body Glow, Foot Acupressure, Six Senses Signature Tea ... and the hotel pool overlooking the sea

The hotel had it's own private island — the jetty was destroyed by the Tsunami and walking on the temporary jetty was like doing the cake walk at the funfair. Talking of the Tsunami, we met six forensic pathologists staying at the hotel who were still identifying bodies six months after the tragedy happened.

... and then back to the hotel pool again

We shot this menu in a café at the airport in Phuket; in any other country you would assume this to be a spelling mistake but in Thailand you can never be sure ...
