  Nakhon Sawan is not a spectacular town. There are no beaches nor mountains. No skyscrapers or wild nightlife. It’s a quiet town full of great food and friendly faces and that’s  what we love about it.   Once a year, however, the town transforms of Chinese New Year. Nakhon […]

Chinese New Year


Version 2 1
    I can vividly remember the first time I had french toast. We were in the disgusting kitchen of my miserable second year student house and we were following a YouTube tutorial on how to make ‘egg bread’.    It wasn’t the best or most glamorous eggy bread I’ve had […]

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 […]

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
About six months ago, we were sat in a cute little cafe in Varanasi.Sick of curry and growing tired of the noise and chaos of India, we used a rare afternoon of decent wifi and coffee to think abut our next trip.   Borneo had been on our list for […]

Climbing Mt. Kinabalu


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 […]
