Our Final Destination In Asia: Singapore

And so we were onto our final stop of the incredible first part of our travels around South East Asia: the tiny country of Singapore. It was getting real now - we could count down to Australia on one hand and that was exciting.

You’re A Pretty Cool Country, Malaysia

Malaysia is one of the few places on our trip that I didn't really know a lot about. I didn't know what to expect from Malaysian food, I hadn't researched much on what to do in our first stop, Penang, and I had no idea what the prices would be like. I didn't even know… Continue reading You’re A Pretty Cool Country, Malaysia

Our Final Weekend In Thailand: Undiscovered Khanom

Our final two days in Thailand involved a lot of travelling, much to Ash's annoyance. The reason behind this was that a friend of mine from school is teaching in Thailand, and it seemed silly not to visit him. We had ended up arranging to meet at a beach party he was going to in… Continue reading Our Final Weekend In Thailand: Undiscovered Khanom

Krabi, Railay and the Most Beautiful Beach in the World, and Climbing 1200 Steps to a Temple

On to one of our final destinations in Thailand: Krabi. Though there isn't a whole lot to do in the town itself, it's surrounded by some of the most beautiful places in Thailand and I couldn't wait to visit. We were sad to leave Koh Lanta for several reasons: our hostel family were so incredibly… Continue reading Krabi, Railay and the Most Beautiful Beach in the World, and Climbing 1200 Steps to a Temple

And Then We Fell In Love With Koh Lanta

I had been looking forward to Koh Lanta for a long time. It was one of the first places in Thailand to go on our itinerary after reading rave reviews on other blogs, and I was excited to get over to the Andaman coast for the brochure views of Thailand that we hadn't seen yet.… Continue reading And Then We Fell In Love With Koh Lanta

Koh Tao: Our Favourite Thai Island

We knew we'd love Koh Tao. Before arriving in Asia, it was somewhere we had barely heard of and not really considered visiting, apart from the fact a couple of friends had recommended it. But those friends had recommended it for diving; something I'm not particularly interested in as I have a mild fear of… Continue reading Koh Tao: Our Favourite Thai Island

A Surprising Paradise on Koh Phangan and How Not to Survive the Full Moon Party

It was time to head south to the islands - and we had timed it all down to a tee to make sure we got to Koh Phangan for the famous backpacker staple known as the Full Moon Party. I was especially excited because some of our friends from Elephant Nature Park were going to… Continue reading A Surprising Paradise on Koh Phangan and How Not to Survive the Full Moon Party

Goodbye Chiang Mai, Hello Bangkok, and A Day in Ayutthaya

After an incredible week at Elephant Nature Park and some sad goodbyes at the end, it was time to head south again for island hopping. But first, we had a final couple of days in Chiang Mai followed by a quick stop in Bangkok with a side order of Thailand's ancient capital, Ayutthaya. We arrived… Continue reading Goodbye Chiang Mai, Hello Bangkok, and A Day in Ayutthaya

Photo Post: Art In Paradise, Chiang Mai

If there's one thing I'm known for among friends, it's doing stupid things. And taking stupid pictures. And being stupid. So when our friend in Chiang Mai told us about this snap-happy museum, I jumped at the chance to take some silly photos! Is this somewhere you'd like to go?!
