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…

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…

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…

Goodbye School

As of today (technically yesterday, but let’s not get pedantic) I am unemployed. Yep. 4 and a half whole months have passed since I began teaching at Raj Pracha Samasai Pratthom School. Can you believe it? I know the time has flown right? Now I’m a free woman for all of October; I’m counting the…

Happy 100!

Today is a VERY exciting day and this is a very exciting post; it’s officially my 100th published post for wherekatiegoes.com- my baby, my lovechild, my sanity. When I first started writing I had no idea that anybody would actually want to read my ramblings, it was my therapy and my way to tell loved…

10 things to know before travelling to Thailand

For the majority of us Westerners; Thailand is on the opposite side of the world-both geographically and culturally. Many ‘farangs’ (foreigner in Thai) experience some sort of ‘culture shock’ when they get here; habits, rules and morals can be extremely different to those you are used to in your native country. For example; it is…

How to become a teacher in Thailand

After my Girls Love Travel takeover (If you haven’t seen it yet, check out my photos and stores here!) I’ve been getting so many messages from girls all over the world asking how they can do what I do so I thought it would make for the perfect post. I love speaking to all of…

10 things I miss about home

Rather than reading my endless waffling, today you get to listen to it yourself- lucky you! Check out my video diary below… What do you miss when you’re away from home? (If it’s mostly food like me then I promise I won’t judge). More often than not we crave things we wouldn’t even necessarily want…

Living in a Dreamworld

This weekend is one of two weekends we have left in Bangkok alone. Pretty soon the cavalry of friends and family arrive and the little peace and quiet we do have will cease to exist (if you’re reading this though, we are incredibly excited to see you all). Gone in a flash, we are also…
