Nu Muang

I’m a total water baby. Baths, swimming pools, beaches or lakes. There’s just something about being in that liquidy goodness that relaxes my being. Which is why waterfalls are a favourite of mine. Before our year in Thailand I had never seen a waterfall, but during our time in Koh Samui I discovered that the […]

… Aaand Stop!

Travelling around the world is something I have always wanted to do. So last year when S was offered a one year contract in Bangkok, I was overjoyed to be asked to accompany him and have the opportunity to experience a new part of this little place we call Earth. However last month that year […]

Ang Thong

. 42 islands that rise directly up out of the sea are what make up the beautiful archipelago that is Ang Thong. Standing tall and beautiful, the limestone islands surrounded by gorgeous blue waters are what inspired Alex Garland to write the novel, ‘The Beach’. But whilst the ‘The Beach’ was inspired by Ang Thong it was filmed […]

The Princess And The Plummet

Today I got carried like a princess. I’m sharing this picture, which has nothing to do with princesses, but is totally relevant to the story, I promise. Now let me rewind. If you follow me on Twitter (WHICH YOU SHOULD TOTALLY ALREADY BE DOING YOU GUYS) then you are probably blissfully unaware of the fact […]

Wat Pho

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll already know that we had S’s family over recently. We always knew that they were planning to come over but unsure of when that would be, we made sure we saved a few sightseeing spots so that we could experience them for the first time, together. One of […]

Koh Larn

Koh Larn promised to be the perfect getaway. Close to Bangkok, pristine beaches, crystal clear waters, coral reefs and an island without thousands of hotels. It sounded perfect, and was part of the reason for my recent trip to Pattaya. Unfortunately it turns out that the websites I had looked at regarding Koh Larn, were […]

Pattaya

Bangkok is lovely, but if you spend too much time there without a break it can get a little suffocating. Traffic, both in people and vehicle form, leave you with the need to escape. To get out of the city and breathe. With three spare days on our hands S, Anna and I decided to pop […]

La Table De Tee

Finding a new jewel in Bangkok is always a pleasure, especially so when the jewel is tucked down a dead end soi between a beauty salon and a massage parlour. S and I had been looking to experience a tasting menu for a while in Bangkok, however with the prices exceeding the triple noughts, we […]

Escapades

Burgers. Burgers are a food of the gods. Ok not really, but they should be. Meat, bun, and topping: it’s a deliciously simple combination with endless variations. After a few months in Bangkok I was worried. It seemed no matter where I went the burgers were always average (at best). But then I found Escapades. […]

Sheepshank

DSC01484

Sheepshank is the newest addition to the Chao Phraya river. But unlike the usual hotels that flock to the river banks, Sheepshank is a little different. Located just outside of Phra Athit (Pier 13), the old boatyard has been given a new fleece of life with a sleek new makeover, which includes a modern industrial […]
