Why Am I Here?

I wrote this post about a week ago but hadn’t got around to publishing it but as I head back to the UK tomorrow for six weeks, it seems fitting to explain more as to why I am in Thailand in the first place.  It’s hard to know how to start certain posts sometimes, this…

Five Best Things To Do In Bangkok!
