Originally, I had planned for Phuket to be the relaxing part of our vacation. I was thinking a resort with its own beach and everything on-site so that we wouldn’t have to leave if we didn’t want to. The only thing I would schedule was a boat tour of the Phi Phi Islands, which had been on my bucket list for years…
This was the most classy, low key, and expensive New Years’ Eves I’ve ever had, but it was also one of the most magnificently fun. My dear Roomie (with whom I lived for 3 years when I was in Arlington), recently bought her first home with her husband, right outside of Atlanta. They opened their beautiful doors for us, and we headed into the city for dinner and drinks at the Sun Dial Restaurant & Bar – a rotating establishment perched on the 74th floor of the Westin, featuring stunning panoramic views of the city below! We were even too high up for the fireworks that went off at midnight 🙂
I’m not sure it was the type of thing I’d ever do again (it was so overpriced!), but I am still glad we did it. I’d say everyone should do it once, if you are ever in Atlanta! It’s probably somewhat cheaper when it’s not NYE.
