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…

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,…

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…

The Temples Of Chiang Mai: Part 2

If you read the first part of my blog about the temples of Chiang Mai, you’ll know that I got a bit lost in the amount of temples I saw and their beauty. If you didn’t read part one, where have you been, naughty person? I really should have a word with your parents about…

The Temples of Chiang Mai: Part 1

For the new year holidays I went to Chiang Mai for the first time…yes I know that seems like ages ago but I am not writing this blog in real-time, I am writing it in ‘when-I-can-be-bothered’ time. Chiang Mai (which translates to ‘New City’) was founded in 1294 by a man known as Mangrai (I…

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…
