Chao Phraya Boat Trip

Taking a boat trip along the Chao Phraya is a must. I could put up a few photographs of the shoreline and end this post now but I’m sorry to disappoint you, I won’t…I have to practice writing if I want to be a writer. Apparantly practice makes perfect which would explain how I became…

Wat Arun: Temple of Dawn

I’d been coming and living in Thailand for almost three years now and I still hadn’t visited Wat Arun, otherwise known as Temple of Dawn, one of the oldest and most recognisable temples in Thailand.

It seems that all major cities have, at some point…

The Best Way To Travel Around Bangkok

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…

Muay Thai Boxing And Hot Dogs

Muay Thai Boxing is a sport I knew very littleĀ  about before moving to Thailand but that is something I was desperate to rectify… Quick Thinking. The crowd was beginning to roar and shout in anticipation of the battle royale that was going to happen in front of their very eyes and the sweat that…
