Koh Phayam – The Scooter Incident

Wednesday I rode a scooter for the first time, it was tricky to begin with and had to drive it up a hill but I couldn’t hack it so I switched the scooter off and walked it back down the hill. One of our guests saw me and thought something was wrong, and that maybe…

And Now I’m In Thailand

I’m in Thaiiiiilaaaaaaand. It’s pretty warm, it’s really darn warm. The flight here was pretty swell, and I made friends with the bloke sitting next to me, called Tony. Tony apparently has the best Thai restaurant in Leytonstone and has been living in London for over 40 years. He was a nice man. Once I…

Oh Hai, Shanghai!

Oh my days, so remember how we were thinking of cutting Shanghai out of our china trip and going somewhere else, but turned out we had to go to Shanghai because our flight tickets to Hong Kong were non-refundable. Well turns out that Shanghai is awesome and I take back any negative feelings about visiting…

Xi’an – the other stuff

Ok so the rest of our stay in Xi’an was ruined by the air that wasn’t really air and more human pesticide! We had planned to go on a hike up mount … but the smog was just so bad there was no point in going because we WOULD HAVE DIED! The air pollution level…

The Non-Existent Terracotta Army

Ok so, despite not reeeally wanting to be in Xi’an we bit the bullet and went to see the terracotta army. We got up kind of early and made our way outside to the big bad world to be tourists. The bus ride was fine and we found the place ok, but to be honest…

Bye Beijing

So Beijing was pretty damn great! We had an amazing time and I can for sure say it is down to having such a lovely place to stay. I’m sure we still would have loved Beijing but our time there was made even better with all the extra treats! On Friday after the mess that…

The Flight

Our flight got cancelled!!! What a bloody joke! So annoying. So we were just sitting there chilling drinking our free wine, and I checked my emails then notice I have one from Bravo Fly telling me the air plane company whatever it was have cancelled that flight from Xi’an to Shanghai and I will have…

Beijing – Art District

This is my favourite part of Beijing, it’s so chill and artsy I simply love it and don’t want to leave. I would recommend coming here over any other part of the city. Forget the tourist traps, this is the place to be. It’s wonderful, inspiring, relaxing, exciting, and every other positive adjective out there!…

Forbidden City, Jingshan Park and the Wonderfully Ordinary Street

Third day in Beijing, the sun is shining and the smog is almost non-existent! An ideal day to check out the tourist hot spots and check out some pretty buildings. We started the day off going to Tienanmen Square which is pretty damn big, then walked through the underpass to make our way in to…

Summer Palace and Silk Factory

It looks as if this weeks weather report is going to be pretty good which is really lucky for us. While we are in Beijing Caitlin’s aunt will also be here working so over the weekend we did some sight seeing with her and visited the Summer Palace, which was really quite beautiful. Even in…
