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…

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.

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…

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…
