I’m home James!

I am back in England. I’m home James (my mum used to say just that every time we walked in the door when I was younger. I have no idea why, I used to think she was talking to a ghost). I mean technically I’ve been back in England for over a week I just…

How to be vegan in Thailand

There seems to be a common misconception that it is incredibly difficult to be a vegan in Thailand, which couldn’t be further from the truth. I’ve met friends who were vegetarian in their home country and converted back into eating meat out here because they couldn’t find anything to eat; this is CRAZY to me….

It’s a jolly holiday-Hua Hin

All I seem to be doing lately is apologising for not writing enough, or forgetting to update my social media blah blah blah. Today is the same. For the past 2 weeks I have been settled in the fanciest hotel I’ve ever been in my life (more on that later) in the beautiful coastal town of…

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…
