Our Visit to Koh Nang Yuan – Tainted Paradise.

Our last couple of days on Koh Tao were spent travelling to various snorkelling spots. One of these was the neighbouring island of Koh Nang Yuan, just a 15 minute taxi boat ride from the main pier. Claimed by many to be the most beautiful of the Thai islands, Koh Nang Yuan is made up […]

Cooking With Joy – A great afternoon in Koh Tao.

As I have previously mentioned, Matt has been doing his PADI Open Water Qualification over the last few days and I have been entertaining myself. I have wanted to do a Thai cooking class since we first arrived in Bangkok in January and had a quick google to see if there were any in Koh […]

My Epic Scubadive Fail. 

Ever since we started this trip, Matt has wanted to get his PADI certificate for scubadiving and seeing as one of the cheapest places in the world to get certified is in Thailand, we headed to Koh Tao after Koh Pha Ngan; THE place to scuba. After much conversation I decided that I might as […]

Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand

So once again I haven’t posted in a while; partly due to lack of wifi and partly because I’ve just not had that much to talk about lately! We left Bangkok just 12 hours after we arrived, buying a bus boat combo for Koh Pha Ngan. I had wanted to visit an island I haven’t […]

Chiang Rai, Thailand – Day 1

This morning we woke early and walked the ten minute journey into the city centre for breakfast, where we took full advantage of the free wifi to make our plan for the day. We knew we wanted to visit Wat Rong Kuhn (famously known as the White Temple), but being 13km south of the city […]

Hup 2, 3, 4 – 48 hours with Jungle Book’s Finest

So in a previous post I mentioned that on my last visit to Thailand I rode an Elephant; naive and unaware that by doing so I was buying into a tourist trade of cruelty and torture. This time around therefore I wanted to do something to give back, as well having a positive experience with […]

Chiang Mai, Thailand – Day 1

Once we had got the unfortunate roommate incident out of the way, had found a map of Chiang Mai and checked in to a new abode, we decided it was high time to get out and explore the city. Everyone I know who has previously been has loved it and I wanted to see what […]

Negative No 1. – Sleeping Buddies 

Last night we stayed at a cute hostel called Chang Home Guest House; for only £2.50 per person per night it was a pretty sweet deal. A bed in a 4 man dorm, a beautiful oriental-style garden and cats (this is always a winner in my book). Unfortunately no one can predict who you might […]

Enroute to Chiang Mai

I am currently writing this 7 hours into our train journey to Chiang Mai. The train ride hasn’t been as bad as I thought it might have been so far, with the air-con working perfectly and lots of leg space; if only airplanes had such luxuries! Included in our mere £15 each train ticket price, […]
