Back to nature in Borneo

At the start of this year we made a list of places we wanted to visit while living over this side of the world. “Aren’t you always on holiday?” is something we are asked- a lot. The truth is that we studied, we worked. We still study and we still work, hard. But now we…

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…

Kanchanaburi Cool

A little slice of Kanchanaburi is sometimes all you need. Anyone who lives in a city will know that sometimes it gets too much. The hustle and bustle, the riff raff and the never ending sound of horns and honks. Add a lovely layer of heat and humidity and you’re ready to get out, and…

Loy Krathong: Thailand

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.

Christmas in Sydney

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas and this year, 2017, we are going home! We can’t wait to wrap up in oversized winter coats and snuggle our feet into slipper socks. But last Christmas, Australia gave us it’s heart. This blog nearly went into the trash as Australia was so loved by…

All things bright and Bali

I should also mention beautiful, brilliant and bloomin’ lovely. Bali had so much to offer us, and six days in this wonderful place was just not enough time. It has been on the list of places in the world to go since the days of university and it did not disappoint. Take us back soon…

Island Style- Mook, Ngai, Lanta

The past five months have flown by and in that time we have traveled more, experienced more and gathered many more freckles, empty bottles of sun-cream and insect bites! Having nipped off to a mere nine islands since being moving to Thailand in August 2016, it is time to write about some of them. The…

W does Brunch

This has to be a short blog today, as I am still feeling the after effects of an all you can eat, all you can drink, five-star hotel brunch. We booked ‘the experience’ package and an experience it was- and we will be going back for more. The first Saturday of every month is now…
