Chiang Mai: a transition from beach-bumming, an escape from the oppressive humidity, a place to enjoy a sudden decline of high-school flashpackers and where street meals over 20THB are a thing of the past. The jittery 20 hour sleeper train … Continue reading
If you (like my Mother) purchased a monster of a Turkey this Christmas and cannot push another fork-full of Bubble and Squeak passed your lips and into your christmas-crammed stomachs, then here is a new way to use up those … Continue reading
There’s one thing that travelling has taught me: don’t listen to everything people tell you. Others had painted a picture of Bangkok as a missable city unbearably clogged up with sweat, motorbikes, people, pestering Tuk-Tuk drivers and seedy back-streets. This … Continue reading

BIG thanks to Natural Euphoria for nominating me for a Liebster Award, it really does mean the whole (small) world to me! I can’t even believe that people are taking the time to read my blog, let alone give me … Continue reading

I originally had high expectations for Phi Phi with it being the top of many people’s lists when visiting Thailand. I had been told by someone who had visited several times that the islands attract hippies and evoke a hedonistic … Continue reading
