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…

A Train Journey And An Accordion Playing Baboon

I went on a train recently – five words that don’t exactly fizz off the screen at the start of a blog and make you gag yourself with excitement of what is to follow, but this was a train in Thailand…an overnight, ‘sleeper’ train in Thailand no less. I’ve travelled outside of Bangkok a few…

My Love For Lumphini Park.

I often feel that I should open up more in these posts, share with you the ‘real’ me, so I’m going to share something that is very personal – I like going for a walks…There, I’ve said it, the cats out the bag, or as I like to say the ‘The breads out the water’ (I…

Going Home Or Leaving Home?

I’m back – did you miss me? …..Hello…did you miss me? Ok, I’ll take that as a ‘yes’. I returned to Thailand just a little over a week ago…”A whole week and this is your first blog? What are you doing with your life?” are the words you are no doubt mumbling to yourself as…

Finally Wearing My Face Mask In Bangkok…Like A Boss!

Well I finally did it. I finally went outside wearing a face mask…I finally feel like a true Bangkokian (I don’t know if Bangkokian is an actual word to describe people who live in Bangkok but I’m claiming it!). Make a note of the date and we’ll all have an anniversary celebration next year because…

The Big Dog Cafe And Washing My Feet In The Toilet

Are you a dog lover? Basically if you’re not then this blog isn’t for you, we also can’t be friends and I hope you die alone, (I know that’s a bit harsh but I really love dogs!) If you are a dog lover then this post will probably make you a bit jealous and you may even…

Are You A Bank Robber? Then Read On!

Robbing a bank is hard, or so I’m told (I’ve never tried). A lot of planning goes into any successful bank job. That is until now. Here is a sign that I saw last week…
