It’s been another  busy week of socialising in Bangkok as ever, and I am now in Koh Kood for Songkran having a much needed relaxing few days Well I say relaxing, we have already well and truly managed to amuse/horrify our resort by taking over the karaoke last night – a few visible winced when we announced we were here all week and would be taking requests...

I survived my first week back at work full time, and simultaneously my social life has gone straight back to business as usual From Vertigo, to #thuperthursday at Wine Connection, it’s been all go. My friend Greg and I held the third session of our tweetups last night, and raised 7900B for Operation Thai Smile. It was great to catch up with some old and new...

I am starting to feel a lot better, and went back to work this week part time – it was so nice to see all my colleagues again and to get back into some sort of a routine again. I am back full time tomorrow so setting the alarm clock is going to hurt! Here’s my week in pictures: Another dry weekend in Bangkok Soi 38 Night Market With Amy and Sam   Ayutthaya   On...

Despite having lived in Bangkok now for almost two years, until last weekend I had not yet visited the former capital city of Ayutthaya. I was so excited when I received an invite from the State of Railway of Thailand inviting me and a friend on their annual steam train trip to Ayutthaya. This year they celebrate their 117th anniversary. When I told people the week...

One of the most exciting things about being an expat is that no week is ever the same. There are always new places to see and new people to meet. However as I have blogged about before, the sad side of being an expat means that people are constantly moving and life can very much feel high and low. And this week I said goodbye to two of my Bangkok best friends, Amy...

I remember before I moved to Bangkok, I declared to my friends in England that I was sure that once I was living here, the pounds were literally going to fall off me, and I would become some sort of slender goddess. I mean all this sunshine, fresh food, my own pool and gym it […]

Being British, there is obviously nothing I love better than a good cup of tea. Friends laugh when they come to my condo, as I have a whole cupboard in my kitchen dedicated to bag after bag of Tetley tea bags. Indeed, I almost broke out into a cold sweat at work one day when […]

Thank you all so much for your get well wishes – I am much better than I was:-). As such, I still have no photos to share with you, but my friend Jade tagged me in this post which I thought might be fun to do – answer 13 questions about myself: Most of us, if not all, are travellers or love travelling. Where’s your favourite destination in the world? Thailand...

As lucky as I am to live in Bangkok, it also means I never get to experience the benefit of all of the fabulous hotels we have here. That is until recently, when I was invited by the Grand Hyatt Erawan to experience their newly launched staycation package. Prior to moving to Thailand, I had visions of myself being at the beach every weekend. The reality is however...

I was recently contacted by Ron McMillan who asked if I would like to read a copy of his new book, Bangkok Cowboy. Ever since moving to Thailand I have enjoyed reading books, both fact and fiction that are set here. I like reading about places that have now become familiar to me, to people’s own experiences of being here (both good and bad) to reading fiction...
