Splashing around-Hua Hin

Before half term started I made a promise to myself that I would write every single day…it’s obvious that that just hasn’t happened. I apologise I haven’t kept this promise but I’ve been pre-occupied with the 5* resort we’ve been staying in for the past 2 weeks (I’ll take some photos of it and write…

Tattoos in Thailand

If you’re coming to Thailand; whether on a boozy holiday, a spiritual retreat or a backpacking adventure- chances are you may think about getting a tattoo and why not? Tattoos are awesome! I now have 4 tattoos, one from a drunken holiday in Spain (I know sounds nothing like me) and the rest from right…

Elephants, Gibbons and Bears- Oh my!

Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man. If you don’t know (although I’m pretty confident that by now all of my lovely readers definitely do), I LOVE animals. By love I really mean love…

What vegans eat- Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan was possibly THE most vegan friendly place I’ve ever been to; which honestly came as quite a shock. From the moment we stepped off the ferry and bumped into a small vegan cafe where we had the most delicious lunch, I knew we’d come across a winner. Unfortunately for me, I only visited…

It’s okay to be an anti-social traveller

Some people travel to make forever friends, to have people they know all over the world, to go on the road together, to socialise in hostels; to play games, to really get to know one another. I am not one of those people…and finally, after a very long time I can not only admit it,…

Free(ish) things to do in Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan; the infamous party island, was so much more chilled than I initially expected. An outdoor cinema, crazy golf, beautiful beaches, yoga and meditation retreats and more vegan food than even I could eat was not at all what I anticipated from the full moon party’s host. Thailand’s Southern Islands are possibly the most…

How to survive a night bus

Night buses. Night buses, night buses, night buses- every travellers worst nightmare. I mean does anybody actually look forward to sleeping on a bus? I don’t think so! Travelling throughout the night comes part of a backpackers territory and to be honest on paper it seems like a pretty sweet deal; you don’t have to…

May Kaidee- Aroi Mak

I’ve wanted to do a cooking class in Thailand for forever; Thai food is my favourite cuisine, I can’t figure out what the hell I’m doing in my little hotpot, so it makes sense to get some professional help. Plus it got Joe, Megan and I out of the tropical storm that is ravaging Bangkok…
