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 Quick Singapore Weekend

We just had a quick weekend jaunt to Singapore to catch up with friends and meet a new family member! One of the best things about living in Bangkok is being able to get to so many other places in just a short flight. I love Singapore and every time I go I like it…

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…

Summer 2017

Well, we’re back in Bangkok after an amazing but totally hectic month back in the UK where, as predicted, we ate way too much, spent too much and drove too much! We caught up with friends and family, hung out with our dog, I accompanied one of my best friends in the world down the…

The UK Round Up

Jet lag has fully kicked in despite my best efforts which is why I find myself writing this post at 4.30am on a Sunday. Oh, the joy. We have just got back from a wonderful 3 weeks with family and friends back in the UK and rather than give you a blow by blow account I…

Koh Samed ~ A Weekend in Pictures

This weekend was a long one here in Thailand due to the Kings birthday. So we headed off to Koh Samed, the closest island to Bangkok, with a gang of mates to celebrate one of our own birthdays, #chidellsthirty. The weekend was a riot of glow paint, scooters, buckets, beaches and sunsets; it was ace….

Home ~ A Snapshot

So I’m back in Bangkok after a wonderful whirlwind 10 days back in the UK cramming in so many things. I am genuinely shattered but having brought friends back to BKK with me there’s no rest for the wicked and we are busy ‘Cooking with Poo‘ and doing bike tours of the city which I…

My Bangkok

I had prepared some posts on our recent trip to Koh Phangan and Koh Tao but after what happened here on Monday I felt like I needed to postpone those posts slightly and address the terrible events of the other evening. Firstly I want to say a big thank you to everyone who sent messages across…

The New ‘hood.

On Friday evening we went to meet a friend in Phra Khanong, which will soon be our new neighbourhood, for drinks and dinner. Dave has been out there before but I haven’t so it was good to have a wander and visit some of the places that will probably become regular haunts! We went to…

What a weekend…

It finally arrived; I turned 30 on Saturday…and where better to celebrate than on a beautiful tropical island in Thailand with a gaggle of mates. It was supposed to be a surprise but as those of you who know me know, I hate surprises! We set off in mini buses at 2.45pm on Friday; destination Koh…
