He has travelled extensively through Asia, his photos often capturing the harrowing effects of war on both people and places. Until March 14th, his lifetime of work is being exhibited here in…

B is for Brisbane

We landed with Thai Airways into Brisbane on the 21st December 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 nice,…

In Love with Oz

We spent an amazing Christmas and New Year in Australia. It was my first time to Australia, my husband was born there but hasn’t been back since leaving when he was a year old so we deliberated hard about what and where we wanted to be. In the end our trip was dictated by two things…firstly,…

Another Weekend in Singapore

I love Singapore and I’m super lucky that my cousin lives there as I certainly wouldn’t get to visit as often if she didn’t! We went for the weekend at the end of November 2016, flying with Singapore Airlines from Bangkok which takes around 2 hours, to go to Neon Lights Festival, which you can…

Heaven on Earth

I am still swaying slightly after spending three nights, four days at sea on seriously the most incredible trip I have ever been on. We saw dolphins, sharks and stingrays and swam with turtles yesterday morning – I am still giddy! We are now in Rockhampton after driving from Airlie Beach yesterday afternoon (ticking wild…

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…

Neon Lights Festival, Singapore 

At the end of November we headed to Singapore to attend Neon Lights Festival. This two day event (no camping) was held at Fort Canning Park and we bought tickets for the Saturday (around £65 I think) mainly to see Foals but also just to get our fix of live music! Something we don’t get…

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…

Review ~ Mövenpick Siam, Pattaya

Preparing for a Princess to visit your workplace is pretty stressful yet a seriously incredible, once in a lifetime experience. Needless to say when said event was over I needed a weekend away. I am sure I’ll offend someone when I say that I strongly dislike Pattaya, it just isn’t the place for me but…

Review ~ Baan Saitara Villas, Koh Samui

A few weeks ago we flew to Koh Samui for a few days. Flying direct with Bangkok Air is more expensive than doing the Nok Fly N Ferry option but in theory should save you about half a day each way – when your only going for four days this was precious time. We usually…

Theo Mio Brunch

We have been to Theo Mio, British chef Theo Randall’s Italian restaurant in Bangkok at the Intercontinental Hotel, a couple of times for Brunch and when I found the pictures and realised I hadn’t shared I thought I should. Served from 11.30am – 2pm, it’s not your traditional Bangkok brunch in the sense that it…

It Cosmetics ~ Your Skin But Better

I’ve heard a lot about It Cosmetics from bloggers and You Tubers but it wasn’t a brand I had come across in Thailand. A few weeks ago during my regular sweep of Sephora I came across a whole new section of It Cosmetics! I had a mental list of what I fancied trying but as…
