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
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
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 knew straight away that I'd love to… Continue reading One Of The Best Weeks Of Our Lives Volunteering At Elephant Nature Park
Our Songkran madness continued in northern Thailand, in the city of Chiang Mai, with a HUGE stinking hangover.

We managed to get our taxi to the airport before… Continue reading More Water Fights, Street Food and Accidentally Joining A Parade in Chiang Mai
