New Year Sydney Style

Sydney and New Year go hand in hand. They are totally synonymous with each other, so of course, when we began planning our  Christmas trip we knew we would have to do the slightly cliched (but bucket list) New Year’s Eve in Sydney! We discovered we had friends from the UK who were also going…

Bangkok Daily ~ March 2017

I feel like I am so behind with my posts. I have lots planned to round up my Australia series, document my time in Chiangmai and Khao Lak as well as a few restaurant and beauty reviews but as per usual everyday life is getting in the way and whilst I felt like I was…

B is for Brisbane

We landed with Thai Airways into Brisbane on the 21st December (2016) and had a day and a half (two nights) to explore the city. We’d heard a few horror stories about getting through Australian customs but found it quick and efficient having applied for our visas online before travelling. The customs officer was really…

Down under for Christmas 

Merry Christmas everyone! I write this whilst sitting overlooking the turquoise sea in the stunning Whitsundays in Australia where we are lucky enough to be spending the holidays! We’ve had a brief time in Brisbane which we loved and are up here to board a catamaran for three days tomorrow! I’m not going to blog…

Be the pebble that starts the ripple…

If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen back in October I got all ‘fan girl’ upon meeting polar explorer Sir Robert Swan who came to speak at the school I work at as part of an academic Global Learner Conference. The Mission of Robert Swan’s 2041 organisation is: to inspire, stimulate and…

Here, There and Everywhere.

Apologies for the lack of posts recently but my parents are here for three weeks meaning we’ve been super busy as well as travelling here, there and everywhere. I will do some proper posts about where we’ve been and what we’ve been getting up to but in a nutshell here it is…Bangkok staycation, Hong Kong,…

Co Van Kessel Bike Tour

Having tried a walking tour and a tuk-tuk tour, it was only right, in the spirit of exploring my adopted city, that I try a bicycle tour. A friend of mine here in Bangkok had raved about Co Van Kessel and particularly their 5-hour combo bike and boat tour. We chose to do the morning tour to…

Cooking with Poo

I have been dying to Cook with Poo so when I was trying to think of new things to do with our visiting UK friends it seemed like the ideal opportunity. Run from her home in the slums of Klong Toey in Bangkok, Khun Poo’s cooking school is popular with tourists and locals alike (Poo has even cooked with Jamie Oliver!)….

The Travel Bit

Last week we headed off with our visitors for some R&R on Koh Phangan and Koh Tao. We used the Nok Air Fly ‘n’ Ferry service as in terms of ease and speed it’s pretty good for getting to the islands, plus price wise it’s really reasonable. Our 2 journeys cost just over £75 per…

Singapore Wandering

I always find the best way to really see a new place is to don some comfy shoes and walk it. Singapore was no different. It’s a very easy city to walk as unlike Bangkok, the pavements are lacking in cracks and holes and are generally immaculate, it didn’t take us long to realise we no…

Travels ~ Singapore

We have just got back from a fabulous few days in Singapore. Like I’ve said previously, we were still undecided of what to do in the holidays by the time they actually rolled around. A few deciding factors and we were off to Singapore for near enough 5 days. We’ve never been to Singapore but…

The Green Lung

Early one Saturday morning a few weekends ago we headed for the Green Lung of Bangkok with some friends. I had read about this remarkable area on a few blogs, heard about it from friends here and seen it from our favourite sky bar in the city! Bang Krachao, is a government-protected oasis of green that the mighty…
