Day 2, Beth and I decided to rent a car. Keep in mind that they drive on the wrong side of the road over here. In doing my research for our honeymoon, I had come across a car rental place that seemed to be close to our hotel. We called them up and ten minutes later they were at our hotel with a car. One signature later, the car was ours. No drivers license, credit card, or collateral for the car needed. We paid in cash and they said they'd be back the next day to get the car. Beth and I looked at each other like, are you serious? But oh well. When in Thailand, do as the Thais do. Below is a pic of our sweet ride:
Having the car was great. We went and explored more of Phuket. We went hiking near a waterfall and then drove over to the crazy part of the island called Patong Beach. There we walked around, went shopping, and walked on the beach. We even went to Swensen's for ice cream. I remember going to Swensen's when I was 8 or 9 years old when we went to the Lake of the Ozarks. Nothing's changed, it was some great ice cream!
