QM2 stopped off the shore of Phuket and we picked a day tour to check out “James Bond” island in Phang Nga bay. We visited a muslim fishing village built on stilts in the middle of the bay as well, pretty interesting.

fishing village

We visited the school in this fishing settlement and there were a number of kids running around and playing. Just looking into their classrooms shows how different and sparse the environment they live in is compared to ours. Here, there isn’t even a proper hospital or clinic and any major illness requires a long boat ride back to the main island.

Sometimes, you remember how indulgent and comfortable your life is while looking at what others lack, and feel that stab of remorse and sympathy hit you hard in the heart.

And then you forget again.
