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 […]

Current Update!

My blog posts have been a few days out due to various wifi problems on the islands so I just wanted to do a quick update of where we’re at currently! Matt got his PADI Open Water Diving Qualification on 9th March 2017 (still working on that blog post from him!) and we spent a […]

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 […]

It’s OK Not To Be OK. 

As mentioned in my last post Matt is currently completing his PADI qualification, leaving me to my own devices for three whole days. In normal everyday non-travelling life I wouldn’t have an issue with this – see some friends, spend time with family, go on a dog walk; you know get on with normal life. […]

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 […]

Cambodia, it was short and sweet. Hello Bangkok.

We left Cambodia after only ten days, more due to time restraints than by choice. It doesn’t feel like we’ve been able to see a lot of this country; and it’s true we haven’t! As I think I’ve previously mentioned when talking about Laos, before I came out here I naively thought every country we […]

Thailand – Laos : The weirdest 24 hours of my life. 

After the relaxing last day in Chiang Rai we had (doing not much of interest), the last 24 hours have been the most surreal I have maybe ever experienced. First of all at the border to Laos, while waiting for a shuttle bus over the Friendship Bridge, we were descended upon by flocks of Thai […]

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 […]

Getting Pummelled by Prisoners – Our last morning in Chiang Mai

After two days of chilling out in Chiang Mai and organising our next steps, finances etc. we got ready to leave for Chiang Rai. Our bus wasn’t until 12.30pm so we decided to wake up early and make the most of our last morning in the old city. Something I had wanted to do since […]
