Our route so far…

For those of you wondering where we’ve been for the last 2 and a half years: Also, postcard maps of our route can be found in the our route section of our website. We’ve also added a couple of new pages including our favourite photos (more coming soon) and videos. Advertisements

Krabi!

Krabi is well known for its challenging sea cliff climbing and beautiful karstic scenery, so we thought we’d go check it out. The climbing itself is around Railay Beach on a peninsular that can only be reached by boat, which definitely adds to the adventure. We didn’t get any photos of the actual climbing, so…

Island hopping

A blue dotted line marked a passage between Chumphon on the east coast of Thailand to the small green blob of Koh Tao from where another blue dotted line wound its way through other green blobs back to the mainland. We did a bit of investigating and discovered that, for the price of a double…

A Recipe for Thai Iced Coffee

2 tbsp condensed milk, a generous squirt of evaporated milk, 2 level tbsp white sugar, 3 very heaped tsp instant coffee, a cup of hot water, 2 tbsp very brewed Vietnamese coffee. Pour over a bucket of ice. Add another squirt of evaporated milk to serve. Delicious!

Canals and country lanes

Bangkok Bike Bed

By chance we found ourselves staying in the loveliest part of Bangkok, at a little gem of a hostel, Granny Bike Bed run by Pan and Neemo. Just around the corner was a delicious outdoor restaurant on the bridge over a small canal, catered by a few street stalls, where we sampled the traditional jum…

Back streets and broadways

On our way in to Bangkok, at the start of the crazy double decker highway. Nearing the city we turned off the busy highways onto some lovely winding streets. Glad to be sharing the roads with tuk-tuks and pedal power rather than lorries. We found a surprisingly quiet road alongside one of the many canals. We…
