The Weekend in Pictures.

Rather than me jabber on about what we’ve been up to the past few days, today I thought I’d let the pictures do the talking! Thursday night street food before the rain hit! Friday Leo and Moo Dadio at Red & Whites Friday night sushi and tempura at Emporium, Phrom Phong   Saturday: It’s fascinating…

Saturday Spree

Unfortunately, I am the sort of person that has no problems spending money but since moving to Thailand I have seriously had to really change my habits. I am no longer earning my own money and I don’t feel that I can justify asking my husband for money to spend on clothes and cosmetics when…

When it Rains…

…it really, really rains! The heat and humidity has been building as we near April, the hottest month of the year, before the rainy season kicks in. Most days are around 35-36 degrees with some days hitting 37-38, evenings are usually a balmy 30 degrees. Over the past few days the usually clear sky has become…

Two Great Finds.

Pretty soon we are going to need to find somewhere to live. Well technically not ‘need’ more like ‘want’. Currently we live quite a way out of town. It is on the BTS which is convenient but we do want to try more central living even if it’s so we can take more advantage of…

Part 5: Jim’s Crib, Silk & Lizards

On Thursday we got up early and headed into town to visit Jim Thompson’s house. I have never visited before but have seen the shops of the same name dotted around town and heard the tale of his mysterious disappearance. The house is a short walk from National Stadium BTS and was pretty well signposted…

Part 4: Eating, Shopping & Football

After our amazing island hopping trip, our friends then had 5 days with us in Bangkok before heading back to the UK. Dave was unfortunately back at work so that left the three of us to do some exploring! On Monday we took a boat down the river to visit Wat Arun and Wat Pho, both…

Part 3: Koh Ngai

I found Koh Ngai (aka Koh Hai) when looking for a third place to visit on our trip. I didn’t really fancy Phuket or Phi Phi which are the usual places to add after Lanta and Railay so I looked south instead. Koh Ngai is a member of the Trang Islands, to the south of Krabi…

Part 2: Koh Lanta

Early on Tuesday afternoon we arrived at the port in Koh Lanta. We escaped through the throng of tuk tuk drivers, paid our 10 baht each to ‘keep Lanta tidy’ and spoke to a songathew driver whose van clearly had enough space for us and all our luggage. For 100 baht each he whizzed us to…

Our Wedding featured on Save the Date!

Our wedding is currently over on Save the Date Magazines blog. I was asked to write about our big day so pop on over to read all about the suppliers we chose and what went into our fabulous December wedding as well as see some more gorgeous pictures from the incredible Ed Godden!

Part 1: Railay

Our friends arrived late Saturday afternoon (seriously…I couldn’t have contained my excitement for much longer). After a quick turnaround in Bangkok taking in a meal in Red & Whites and a brief nights sleep, we caught a taxi at 7.30am on Sunday morning to Don Mueang airport praying the traffic was kind to us. Of course…

The last 2 weeks…

Helllloooo, it feels like i’ve been away from the bloggersphere forever! Well I am finally back after an amazing 2 weeks with friends. We had an incredible week of island hopping first, taking in Railay, Koh Lanta and Koh Ngai which I will fill you in about in the next few blog posts. We snorkelled,…
