Whoops… those blogging errors!

Dear subscribers, you’ll probably notice a post in your inbox that wasn’t quite complete.  That is my whoopsie for the day.  I’m going to blame my phone and not my incompetence in using the the WordPress app. You see after not writing for so long and saying I would be more regular with posts I … Continue reading

The Art of Riding Side-Saddle

People say that travelling around Bangkok can be one of the most frustrating and tiring parts of living in this mega city.  It wasn’t design with the knowledge that one day thousands of cars will be travelling its road.  I can’t count the number of times I’ve sent a message to a friend or colleague saying … Continue reading

It’s Food Time – 7-Eleven’s Popcorn!

In celebration of the up coming opening of a new 7-eleven store in my neighbourhood, this post is about one special product you can only get at a 7-eleven.

Exploring the provinces surrounding Bangkok is something we really enjoy doing and have been doing increasingly more of.  Partially because we have less time for travelling further afield and because of the easiness of getting to these places.   Within 3 hours drive of Bangkok are some great hidden gems worth visiting. One special place … Continue reading

A secluded spot on Koh Samui

A secluded spot on Koh Samui

When seeking out a location for our 2013 Christmas Holiday you might think we were a little strange that Koh Samui wasn’t our first choice.  Our idea of Samui was an island with too many big fancy resorts, lots of shops and parties and not enough casual relaxing beach space.   We enjoy the simple … Continue reading

Monday Madness – The Long Bangkok Winter!

Monday Madness – The Long Bangkok Winter!

Over the last couple of days I’ve finally realized that Bangkok is departing it’s long cool winter and I’m a little annoyed.   I’m annoyed because I’m no longer used to 31 degree heat.  Now I’m sweating as I walk down the street, I feel hot all the time and I just want to hide in … Continue reading
