Go Green in the Lung

“Why is it called that?” was my first hungover question of last Sunday. The sun was shining and the heat was on. Thailand is quickly approaching the ‘hot hot’ season once again the chin sweats are becoming a real thing. Not a single item of clothing will stay safe in this heat and grey colour…

The Chao Phraya River

The start of the new year has not been Bangkok’s finest. We have been swarmed with heavy pollution, coating our city in a thick, grey smog with barely any sunlight to be found. The great outdoors has not been so great in this part of the world and we long for crispy, clean air. But…

The Sweet Suite Life

I promised that the next blog would be all street art, food and shop houses, as we venture our way to Penang (Malaysia) next week. But there is a place in Bangkok that has carved a little soft spot in our Harts and it goes by the name of The Anantara. Too beautiful to ignore,…

Weeks have passed since Loy Krathong was celebrated here in Thailand. But this celebration is something very special and something worth telling the world about.

The Oriental Residence

With my sister in Bangkok, we found a way to treat ourselves… our dear Mum. Thank you, Julie Hurn. You gave us the…

BKK *sister special

What would you do if your sister just turned up outside your condo, from half way across the other side of the world? No warning, no hint, no sneaky¬†little side comment…?¬† I thought sister’s couldn’t keep secrets. Apparently mine can, especially if it means seeing your big sister cry like a baby. In the days…
