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…

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,…

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…
