Sun, Sea and Snorkelling. Koh Toh, Thailand

The sun rose higher into the clear blue sky bringing a welcome relief to the period of rain we had experienced over the previous week. Peering over the side I could see the parting of waves as they crashed and fell sending ripples over the water which glistened in the morning sun....

Battling the rain in Ranong, Thailand

We arrived in Ranong to more rain. It was hard to keep our spirits high. The plastic rain coats we bought from Seven Eleven weren’t holding out too well and we were starting to get a bit wet. I was panicking about water getting into my laptop bag so we sheltered under...

Hitchhiking in Thailand – don’t be afraid!

This cool guy took me to Um Phang Wildlife Sanctuary. Hitchhiking has been around for quite some time now. It basically involves standing at the side of the road trying to flag down a car to give you a ride to or towards your destination, usually for free. If you’ve ever seen...

Fun and Games on the road

A spontaneous game of Dama Quite a crowd started to gather around the table. Men of course – We were sitting in a café in Morocco where the sight of a woman would cause quite a stir. My opponent looked flustered as people hailed his next move and what should have been...

Prachuap Khiri Khan, Thailand

Prachuap Khiri Khan was considerably less touristy than Hua Hin. No prostitutes hanging around, and no fast food chains, just good old Seven Eleven, some wok stands and a few nice seafood restaurants. We stayed in a tiny room with a bed so small you would think it was made for spooning!...

Hua Hin and Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park

The town was in flood and the rain was up to our knees as we waded through the streets of Hua Hin with our clothes rolled up and no shoes on. It was quite a pleasant feeling because the water was warm but not seeing what was under the water was quite...

Peculiarities of the Thai variety…

Every country has its signature trend- something that is synonymous with that country and immediately you set sight on it you can pinpoint where that person is from.  Sometimes even down to a town or city.  Think baseball caps; sandals with white socks; towels on sunbed; endlessly photographing the most mundane of...

Khao Yai National Park, Thailand

Well, I made it. See that motorbike I’m sitting on? I had to put on my best charm to get that! I was gutted when I arrived in Saruburi and couldn’t find anywhere to rent a motorbike, but, typical me – being not the one to give up – took a train...

Sunday morning in October

I’m gazing out of the window upon the tree that I’ve known since I was a child. Red, yellow and green are its colours. Beautiful autumn leaves, swaying in a gentle breeze. October is here and the birds are migrating South to the warmer weather, flying in formation and singing their song...

The Stonehenge of Thailand, Chaiyaphum Province

It’s an interesting feeling to arrive in a foreign town with no idea where you’ll rest your head that night. Arriving in Chaiyaphum was no different to arriving in any other typical Thai town off the tourist trail. Everyday life passing by so quickly yet mine appeared to be standing ever so...
