So Long Thailand…

thaiflagThere are very few places in life that I have called home. Liverpool has and always will be my home city, and I of course counted Lancaster, my University town, as a home for 3 years. Neither of these could have prepared me for my time in Thailand, and I’m glad that the experience was so different. I have made some awesome friends, seen some amazing places, and had some fantastic times that have left me looking back with fond memories, and looking forward with high expectations, and an even higher benchmark.

We’re Just Not Beach People

aaaOur time in Thailand is coming to an end. We’ve travelled all over and seen some awesome things, and have reached our final stop: Krabi. Home to beaches, caves, and more beaches, Krabi is considered one of Thailand’s paradises, so should be the relaxing chill out time we need before the hectic run through Malaysia and Singapore.

The Beach Beach

mayaI have repeatedly said on my blog throughout the time I have had it that she had it right in 10 Things I Hate About You. Some things are overwhelming, and some things are underwhelming, and some are just whelming. For me, whelming is a slightly generous description of Koh Phi Phi and Maya bay, which I think I will always refer to as The Beach beach. Continue reading

Bicycles, Buddhas, and too many tacos

Do you ever make a plan to do something that seems brilliant on paper, but they when you come to do it, you wonder where you have gone completely insane? Yes, you do? Well, I felt like that on Tuesday morning as I got off the BTS and walked to the ABC (amazing Bangkok Cyclist) office. The thought of doing a 16km bike tour of Bangkok was about as far down on my list of priorities as staying in Bangkok beyond Thursday. Continue reading

I am sorry

aaaI would like to apologise for my unexpected hiatus from writing. I could come up with a wealth of probably rubbish excuses, but the simple fact is, I kept forgetting. I didn’t have the time. I am practically in paradise in Southern Thailand, and just haven’t managed to regularly post.

I am going to try my best to fill in the gaps and write blog posts for everything and everywhere over the next day or two, so bear with the onslaught that may well come your way.

Good news is, we’re having an awesome time!

The Bridge over the River Kwai

IMG_5681I feel like the past few days have been absolutely non-stop. I think that’s a good thing. I’m going to need that rest time when we finally get out of Bangkok and reach Koh Tao. I’m glad were doing so much that doesn’t include being in Bangkok itself because I just don’t really like the place. I don’t know why, I just don’t. Continue reading

It’s been awesome Roi-Et

10881490_10205586194884978_8597659009782363746_nFor the last few months, I’ve lived in a small Thai city called Roi-Et. Located in central Issan, northeastern Thailand, it’s quiet, authentic, and has provided us with some awesome memories and experiences. To try and capture everything that has happened and everyone I’ve met in one post is going to be, well, impossible, but I can’t leave here without giving it a go!! Continue reading
