If you’re on Instagram, you’ll probably be familiar with the #bestnine hashtag. An app finds your top photos from the past year based on number of likes and puts them into a collage. It’s a fun way to look back at the year. I’ve stolen this idea and made a […]

Our #bestnine of 2016

Version 2
  I’ve never been a huge fan of New Year Eve – too much pressure and expectation. You need to have a plan way in advance, you MUST  be doing something. Everthing is booked up and SO  expensive!   But this year we went away to the beach with friends […]

New Year on Koh Mak

Best Food in Town!
Our favourite food in town is found in a busy, brightly light restaurant furnished with tin tables and a distinct lack of walls. If you’ve ever visited us, you’ve almost definitely eaten here at least one.   It doesn’t look fancy but it’s well known in Nakhon Sawan for it’s […]

Here in Nakhon Sawan: What we eat….

Mulu National Park is a World Heritage Area and it’s not hard to see why. Isolated in the dense rainforest of Sarawak, Borneo, it is home to huge cave systems, dramatic limestone structures and a whole host of wildlife. Here’s a video of what we got up to and what I […]

Vlog from the Rainforest!

Walking above the Borneo jungle!
  We touched down at Mulu airport less than 24 hours after completing our descent from the peak of Mt. Kinabalu. Our legs were creaking with every step as we shuffled off the tiny plane onto the equally tiny runway. It’s basically a bumpy stretch of tarmac in the middle of […]

Climbing Mt. Kinabalu
It was slow. It was hard. It was COLD. Almost every step we took was up. But with encouragement from each other and our guide we made it to the top of Mt.Kinabalu. At 4.52am and -1°C it was pitch black, cloudy and windy. As happy as I was to get […]

My favourite Indian street food
Living in Thailand we have got very used to being able to pick up snacks and meals on the street. In place of highstreets there are street markets and that suits me just fine!  India was all that and more; on buses and trains, people would pile on at every stop and walk […]

Street food in India

Here in Varanasi
    We arrived in Varanasi after a week in the mountains and a 22 hour train journey. It was five weeks into our India trip.   We were tired. Tired of travelling on a tight budget, tired of sleeping in depressing rooms, and tired of eating curry for almost every meal. […]
