How I planned my trip to Thailand

How I planned my trip to Thailand

Thailand has been on my list for a long time, although I think South East Asia is on everyone’s list right? I especially wanted to go after watching The Beach, of course and seeing those stunning photos of the turquoise shores lined with traditional Thai fishing boats. They’re just so damn pretty! I decided on Thailand as it’s on my way home to New Zealand from Ireland/London. Lots of Aussies and Kiwis to do this after finishing their OE, (might…

Chernobyl – Day trip to a Disaster Zone

Chernobyl – Day trip to a Disaster Zone

Follow my blog with Bloglovin “Chernobyl?! What are you going there for?!” A fair thing to say if someone’s considering a trip to the site of the worst nuclear disaster in history. But Chernobyl had been on my travel wish list for donkey’s years.

I’m not usually one of those people that are visiting somewhere and say “I need to come back here!”, realising how ludicrous it sounds, because I AM here RIGHT now. But this was something more. This was a deep longing to return to this magical place…

My move to London – Part 2

My move to London – Part 2

Livin’ the dream So I found my dream flat (despite the fact our shower was broken and we had to have baths every day for a month or two, and then when we got it got fixed it gave us electric shocks if we touched the metal bits, but still it was our dream flat!) I was living with great ladies, close to The City, close to transport, only a 20 minute journey to work when some of my poor…
