The Time I Almost Perished While Climbing A Big Rock.

This story takes place in Hau Hin 14 months ago before I  moved to Thailand, but I want to include it for two reasons, firstly because I want you to know I like to live dangerously and secondly, I can’t think of anything else to write today. If you are faint of heart please stop…

The Best Way To Travel Around Bangkok

Canals…a word that either makes your heart leap with excitement like a salmon jumping on a trampoline or one that makes you more sleepy than an elk in slippers?
