The Street Art Of Bangkok 2

Bangkok, a city that seems to hum constantly with life. The street food sellers, the tuk tuk drivers, the friendly faces are just three of the many things that make me love this city. But I also have a new love for this city and a new love for street art and this is becuase…

Why Am I Here?

I wrote this post about a week ago but hadn’t got around to publishing it but as I head back to the UK tomorrow for six weeks, it seems fitting to explain more as to why I am in Thailand in the first place.  It’s hard to know how to start certain posts sometimes, this…

Five Best Things To Do In Bangkok!

Sometimes I like to write something really silly…this is one such time…I would like to apologise and I hope the images you are about to see do not leave you too traumatized. Being in Bangkok can sometimes be overwhelming, with so much to do it’s difficult to know what to choose. Should you visit one…

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? (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 crowd was beginning to roar and shout in anticipation of the battle royale that was going to happen in front of their very eyes and the sweat that had formed on my head was now running down my neck, onto my back. A hundred thoughts swirled furiously around my brain, ‘what was I doing…

Thailand: Where Pavements Are In Fact Roads

Thailand, a country of unparalleled beauty, white sandy beaches and clear blue seas. Small islands of rugged rocks that spark the imagination of times gone by. A country of delectable cuisine full of spices and heavenly ingredients. The land of smiles where people are disarmingly friendly and respectful. A country I love. My home. It…

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…
