Over the weekend, I flew down to Phuket to attend the 23rd Laguna Phuket Triathlon. I was a guest of the Ministry of Tourism & Sports for the two day trip. As well as attending the Triathlon, I was also able to visit a few places around Phuket. Click here for a story about the Triathlon. These are the photos that I tweeted live during the trip.
