The Street Art Of Bangkok 3

So, if you’re a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I have got quite into the street art scene in Bangkok – I would just like to say that this infatuation is getting worse… I can honestly say that I think Bangkok is one of the worlds hidden gems for street art….

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? (I don’t know how I come up with such stupid sayings!) I’ve never been a water person or travelled much by boat but having travelled along…

The Best Dressed Tree In Bangkok

This isn’t a post about fashion. My fashion sense consists of three questions, how comfortable is it, how much will it make me sweat and how would this look on Harrison Ford? Three questions that have stood me in good stead when picking clothes but hardly the skills required for a blog about fashion (I…

The Ramakien Mural: The Origin Myth Of A Nation.

The Ramakien Mural…heard of it? Chances are that if you’ve never been to Thailand, you wont have done. I certainly didn’t until recently but maybe that’s also because I am ignorant to all culture…not really, I love it – culture and me go hand in hand, together like novovirus and trips to the toilet. I…

The Golden Mount And Sweaty Legs

I’ve been living in Thailand for roughly 7 of the last 9 months and I still look at men wearing trousers in this heat with great awe. It’s probably similar to the feeling people must have had when they first saw moving pictures or found out that The Bee Gees were men. I have a few…

A Miracle in Thailand

During these unsettled times, with so many seemingly bad things happening on a daily basis and with my laundry bill going through the roof because to the amount of clothes I am going through due to the constant sweating, it is comforting to know that miracles do happen…

The Swimming Dog

I hired a private long-tail boat a couple of days ago (that sounds like I’m super rich but they’re really cheap to hire) and explored some of the canals that are scattered all around Bangkok. I will write a longer post about that soon but I wanted to share a photo with you because for…

Experiencing An Awkward Massage…

‘I really enjoy having a massage in Thailand’ – eight words that make a lot of people immediately think of…special, ‘happy’ massages. But I am sorry to disappoint you though, as this story isn’t about one of those massages. Each to their own but those kind of massages don’t ‘tickle my fancy’ so to speak but I did…

5 Ways To Deal With Jet-lag

Jet-lag, the bane of every travellers life, I should know because I have done it. I’ve done it a lot. I’ve travelled more times than Richard Branson’s made a complete knob of himself and that’s A LOT! (Sorry to any Branson fans reading this…but he is). Many people have tried to find ways to cure…

The Thai Wedding And A Brush With The Local Mafia!

Those of you that read about my overnight train journey (A Train Journey And An Accordion Playing Baboon) will know that the whole reason for that sleepless night was for a wedding further up north in a place called Rattanaburi in Surin province Surin. Surin is an area known for its vast areas of farmland,…
