THC Rooftop bar Chiang Mai

I ended up here completely by accident, having used my map to originally look for a totally different bar and got the names confused. As we entered my younger sister looked at me worryingly “Where have you taken me Rhiannon?! This looks like some sort of dodgey crack den!” I was curious and insisted on […]

Why I hate Bangkok – Scammed, kicked out of taxis and nearly run over.

Finding my centre with yoga in Koh Lipe

I started going to sunrise yoga classes every morning in Koh Lipe. I won’t profess I am particularly good at yoga, but I do genuinely enjoy it. I kept meaning to try it back home but it was just too slow for me. I was busy, I had things to do, my mind was constantly […]

Street art in Georgetown, Penang (Malaysia)

I loved Georgetown. It’s colourful, quirky, multi-cultural and historic. I loved the colours, textures, and patterns all over the city against the backdrop of old colonial style buildings which are part of the UNESCO World Heritage old town. Most of all I loved the street art scene. Since 2012 when a Lithuanian artist created six […]

Bao for breakfast in Kuala Lumpur

So in a nutshell, I got confused with the dates of when my Indonesian visa would expire. I found out just by way of passing conversation over dinner with my friend and immediately had to rush back to the hotel at 7pm and make hasty arrangements to get on the night bus and go straight […]
