Best of 2016
  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

What to do in Kanchanaburi
  We first visited Kanchanaburi two years ago when we came to Thailand on holiday to visit our friends. Our stay here took in some of the highlights of our whole trip, and it was on the rusty public bus somewhere between Kanchanaburi and Nakhon Sawan that we thought we […]

Angkor Wat 2
Starting on the sunny shores of Koh Phi Phi and ending up at the ancient ruins of Angkor; we spent 5 and a half weeks making our way through Thailand, Laos and Cambodia with Matt’s sister Lauren and her boyfriend, Tom. When we leave each place we always ask each […]
