I’m happy to announce that my blog from my recent trip to Myanmar (aka Burma) with short stops either side in Thailand and Hong Kong is finally online after some delays. As explained on this site I write up my blog in note format and then take time to write […]
Now that I’ve been back in the UK for a few days, and have started re-adjusting to UK time, I’ve had a chance to reflect on my trip to Myanmar. I had wanted to visit Myanmar, also known as Burma, for a while. There are a few things that drew […]
I have finally arrived back in Phuket after a long day of travelling. I’m staying in Phuket Town for a couple of nights to see a non-beach side of the island and to experience life in a less touristy Thai town. Unfortunately I didn’t have a chance to see much […]
I’m writing a lot for this travel blog as the days go by which I didn’t expect. I was expecting to have a lot of sitting around doing nothing and relaxing, which we did, but there’s so much going on around us as well that I don’t want to forget […]
