Thanks to strawberry yogurt this week has been a little bit different. For whatever reason, I decided it was a good idea to put a litre tub in the rucksack that was also holding my laptop and my ipad. The tub then split and my ipad and computer ended up being a yogurt-y mess Needless to say Thursday was not a good day as I panicked that I had ruined my things just...

It’s a long weekend at the moment in Thailand for mothers day – one thing I have quickly learnt as a freelancer is that days and weekends merge into one. I keep forgetting that  most people have four days off but it has meant the city has been nice and quiet. It was also my mum’s birthday on Friday – I really missed being able to celebrate...

The amount of things I haven’t seen or done is starting to become a little bit of a joke on twitter. No Star Wars, Star Trek, Nutella etc……. My helpful friend Amy therefore has taken it upon herself to set me a number of challenges in an attempt to take me out of my comfort zone. So this month, along with my friend Elise, I went to Flowhouse on Sukhumvit...

Although it is true that there is nothing quite like a sleep in your own bed when you have been away, there is also nothing quite like the feel of the sheets and the pillows in a hotel bedroom, so I was extremely excited to be invited by the Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit to stay with them for the weekend to test their new mobile check in and check out app available...

It’s been a bit of a murky old week this week in Bangkok, but a fun one nevertheless – I went surfing with my friend Elise at the beginning of the week (full blog post coming this week) which was so much fun, even if I was a little battered and bruised the following day, and then yesterday my friends and I went on the Taste of Thailand food tour –...

Many nationalities are permitted a 30 day visa exemption when entering Thailand. If you are not from a country that falls into this category, or wish to stay longer than 30 days, then a visa is required. For years now many expats have been living in Thailand on visa exemptions or back to back tourist visas, but this all now seems set to change. A lot people are...

Not many people realise that I was born in Liverpool. I moved to a tiny village just outside of Carlisle, Cumbria when I was 7, and so I don’t have a scouse accent (although I have a bit of a lilt after a couple of glasses of wine or when I am tired), so people are often surprised to hear that I am an Everton fan. Most of my family are blues, and I remember...

It’s hard to believe that it is Sunday again! I am home after an awesome weekend in the Marriot Hotel on Sukhumvit 57 – there is just something about a hotel bed that rivals no other, and it was also great to be able to have a bath! They are one of the things I missed most about my home in England. Speaking of home, I am just about to leave and watch my...

It’s becoming a fairly well known joke now between my friends and I on twitter that if they mention a film, the chances are pretty high that I won’t have seen it. I think the last film I saw in the cinema was about two years ago which was Les Mis (maybe not quite two years but pretty close). I have possibly watched one film on DVD in the same time frame. So...

So this was my first full week as a freelancer, and it has felt a little strange I must confess not having my usual 8.30am-6pm working week, although I have been trying to stick to that at home. Things have been a little bit tricky as it turns out one of my cats now also fancies himself as a writer, but sadly only likes to work when I do, believing that my computer...
