Hey guys you all know that I was away on a little working holiday with Tropout in Phuket and heres the first wrap up for you.
Tropout Phuket was a great tour. I really needed a nice holiday to finish off summer before starting to bunker in for winter and my next trip to the UK.
Phuket is a great place to holiday but being able to do it with a small group of super fun chilled Gay guys makes it even better. I’m not such fan nowadays of the circuit crowd and the gigantic cruiseships. When I look for a holiday I’m more interested in getting to explore and chill and socialise, Tropout is my kind of holiday.
I’ve posted some pics below of the trip which included a luxury boat cruise, a tour of Phi Phi Islands including Maya Bay, cooking classes, Tuk Tuks around Patong, A Temple tour, Zip lining through the rain forest and finally the wicked beach party at the Iguana beach club to finish the tour.
The highlights of the tour for me were the Hype boat tour and the final beach party. The Hype boat tour was a great start to the tour and really nice way for everybody to mix and get to know each other. We had the boat to ourselves and could really let our hair down and enjoy the sun and the sea. We stopped at a couple of nice swimming spots and were super comfy in a our VIP booths or out on the front deck under the sunshine before dancing in to the evening as the spectacular sunset around us.
I met some really great people on the tour. The great thing about being the official photographer is that you get a chance to meet everybody. Although people naturally form friendship groups there wasn’t any of the clicky nonsense that I’ve seen on other holidays. People really were happy to chat and mingle with everyone. I think thats one of the benefits of having a smaller group. All parts of the world and the community were represented too which made it great for meeting new and interesting people. My role as the photographer gave me a unique chance to wander and mingle and chat with everybody and the more fun I had the more photos I took.. Bonus!
I’ll be posting lots more pics from my Tropout adventure in future posts so stay tuned.
I can’t wait to go on my next Tropout, hopefully Malta next and the Koh Samui next year.
