The Long Absence

I’m sat here thinking about why I haven’t blogged since March and to be honest there really are a million reasons but as I’m trying to put them into words they just sound like excuses but here goes… April was spent travelling, in May, school got really busy and then my Grandfather passed away and…

Bangkok Daily ~ February 2018

I’ve lived in Bangkok for over three years now. On one hand, it feels like forever, on the other I still feel like I arrived yesterday. We’ve just committed to another two-years on our current contract which will take us through to June 2020. Although that’s only two years aways something about 2020 sounds like…

A Very Bangkok Christmas

Anyone who assumes just because Thai people don’t celebrate Christmas it’s not really a thing here would be massively mistaken. Bangkok seriously goes to town on Christmas, like big time. The malls are insanely decorated, it’s like fairy lights have been spewed over the city and the festive tunes are pumping all over the place….

Monday, Monday…

Seriously…where did October go?…and how is it November tomorrow? To say it’s been a hectic month would be a bit of an understatement. The past weeks have flown by in a flurry of friends, family and trips to Cambodia and Phuket. It’s been awesome but has left me decidedly behind on the blogging front so…

Bangkok Daily ~ September 2017

Being an expat has its ups and downs. It can be hard being so far from home and despite being over three years into expat life, it doesn’t get easier! But the good times far outweigh the bad for me which is why it didn’t take me long to think of Bangkok as home. When…

Catchup

So sorry I haven’t blogged in ages, the last weeks of term at school are always crazy busy and this year it was no exception. If anything this year was actually crazier as we have had a number of close friends leaving Bangkok so we’ve had non-stop parties and celebrations for weeks which of course…

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…

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…

Bangkok Daily ~ October 2016

I thought I’d share a few of my favourite Instagram posts from the past few months plus a few extras. Life in the crazy city of Bangkok becomes ever more familiar as I edge towards my second year anniversary of living in Thailand, but everyday little things remind me that life is slightly extraordinary no matter…
