Loy Krathong: Thailand

Weeks have passed since Loy Krathong was celebrated here in Thailand. But this celebration is something very special and something worth telling the world about. Let me get the photographs to do most of the talking. Cue the Canon! November approached us with a shock. With the lack of seasons here in Thailand, it is…

Christmas in Sydney

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas and this year, 2017, we are going home! We can’t wait to wrap up in oversized winter coats and snuggle our feet into slipper socks. But last Christmas, Australia gave us it’s heart. This blog nearly went into the trash as Australia was so loved by…

All things bright and Bali

I should also mention beautiful, brilliant and bloomin’ lovely. Bali had so much to offer us, and six days in this wonderful place was just not enough time. It has been on the list of places in the world to go since the days of university and it did not disappoint. Take us back soon…

Having nipped off to a mere nine islands since being moving to Thailand in August 2016, it is time to write about some of them. The…

W does Brunch

This has to be a short blog today, as I am still feeling the after effects of an all you can eat, all you can drink, five-star hotel brunch. We booked ‘the experience’ package and an experience it was- and we will be going back for more. The first Saturday of every month is now…

How time goes by in Thailand

Looking through my blogs this morning, my status states ‘one month since Koh Samet was published’. How has another month gone by? Time went fast in the UK but time here seems to go even faster. We’ve been in Bangkok for nearly four months now and although we have done so much and seen so…
