Chichen Itza

Whilst in Tulum we booked a tour to Chichen Itza, probably the most famous set of ruins on the Yacutan peninsula (we've all seen pictures on Instagram!). There are many tour touts working in Tulum, but to book the tour we used a company called iTour who I found via TripAdvisor. On their website there … Continue reading Chichen Itza


Mexico: Isla Mujeres

Before we went away it was raining serious cats and dogs in crappy London. I felt bad leaving you all there. Nawwwt. Muahahaha. Hellooooooo hot and sunny Mexico!!! I should also explain that my boyfriend is with me on this trip. That's right- this is not a solo trip. I repeat, this is not a … Continue reading Mexico: Isla Mujeres

Chiang Mai

Our flight left Krabi just passed 9am, so we were in Chiang Mai by 11.30am, winner! We were staying at the Royal Guest House just on the outer perimeter of the main city, about half way between the centre and the night bazaar.

Krabi Town

We were told the journey would take 2 hours if we had other passengers on board that were … Continue reading Krabi Town

Koh Lanta

Our decision to stay on Koh Lanta was made a few weeks before we left for Thailand, based on the fact it wasn't too far from mainland Krabi and it was off the beaten track in terms of numbers of tourists. Plus it looked lush. We pre-booked a boat from Ao Nang to Koh Lanta … Continue reading Koh Lanta

Krabi: Ao Nang, Railay Beach, 4 Island Tour, New Years Eve

The aeroplane journey from Bangkok to Krabi is an hour. We were told this by 2 different tuk tuk drivers (so it must be true, see Bangkok post). The journey itself once up in the air was indeed 1 hour, but the paraphernalia of the airport both at Bangkok and Krabi was ridiculous so the … Continue reading Krabi: Ao Nang, Railay Beach, 4 Island Tour, New Years Eve


So I have a confession. It's a big one... I'm no longer a solo traveller, I now have a partner in crime and it's our first trip together. Eeeeep! is still a go, just I'll be using words like 'we' and 'us' and stuff like that Soooooo, Thailand!  After a pretty long journey from … Continue reading Bangkok
