The Best Way To Travel Around Bangkok

If you were to think of what is the best way to travel around Bangkok your first thought probably wouldn’t be ‘canals’ but I suggest you think again… Canals…a word that either makes your heart leap with excitement like a salmon jumping on a trampoline or one that makes you more sleepy than an elk…

The Best Dressed Tree In Bangkok

This isn’t a post about fashion. My fashion sense consists of three questions, how comfortable is it, how much will it make me sweat and how would this look on Harrison Ford? Three questions that have stood me in good stead when picking clothes but hardly the skills required for a blog about fashion (I…

Thailand: Where Pavements Are In Fact Roads

Thailand, a country of unparalleled beauty, white sandy beaches and clear blue seas. Small islands of rugged rocks that spark the imagination of times gone by.

Experiencing An Awkward Massage…

‘I really enjoy having a massage in Thailand’ – eight words that make a lot of people immediately think of…special, ‘happy’ massages. But I am sorry to disappoint you though, as this story isn’t about one of those massages. Each to their own but those kind of massages don’t ‘tickle my fancy’ so to speak but I did…

5 Ways To Deal With Jet-lag

Jet-lag, the bane of every travellers life, I should know because I have done it. I’ve done it a lot. I’ve travelled more times than Richard Branson’s made a complete knob of himself and that’s A LOT! (Sorry to any Branson fans reading this…but he is). Many people have tried to find ways to cure…
