5 Things I Learnt In January

January is notoriously the dullest month of the year. Days are shorter and colder, no one wants to go out as they attempt ‘Dry January’, no one wants to go out to eat as they attempt ‘Veganuary’ and motivation to go to the gym, disappears after exactly 2 weeks. But my year started differently to…

Things I Learnt in 2018

2018 was an interesting year to say the very least. I started it with my first full time job at a company I loved and ended the year by losing that job due to a redundancy. I travelled more than I have ever travelled before, exploring 4 countries in South East Asia, took 3 trips to the United…

Control

I faced so any fears and tried so many new things on my trip to Thailand: going to a water park and not drowning, going on a water flume and not drowning, climbing waterfalls, changing the original plan, booking the whole trip in the first place so last minute, the list goes on. I’ve realised that the…

Last Day in Thailand

I arrived back in Koh Phangan, my final stop and was greeted by a friend that I made all the way back on my first day in Bangkok. One of those people that I just clicked with straight away, and what an adventure we had that day. In the spirit of trying new things we…

Changing the Plan: Koh Tao

Whilst I was in Koh Samui, one of the girls I met gave me some great recommendations for Koh Tao. At the time I kind of accepted I was going to have to miss it out on this trip, as I simply did not have the time but as the weather turned for the worse…

72-ish Hours in Koh Phangan

After reluctantly saying goodbye to some great new friends in Koh Samui, I headed off to Koh Phangan (on a rickety ferry with 3 hours sleep and a hideous hangover might I add). The weather wasn’t really looking up and upon arrival at my hostel I wasn’t feeling the vibe. I was actually quite taken…

48 Hours in Koh Samui

The thing about travelling is that in hindsight, you could have always done things differently. I woke up at 4:30am on my last day in Chiang Mai and spent 10 hours travelling down south to the islands. It wasn’t until the day after that I found out that I could have got a flight from…

72 Hours in Chiang Mai

Despite nearly missing my flight to Chiang Mai by going to the wrong airport, I left Bangkok excited; not nervous, not scared. Excited. I was here for a reason and this was the start of the second chapter in my journey, a transition to something new and I was enjoying the ride.   Chiang Mai was…

48 Hours in Bangkok

A couple hours after I landed in Bangkok, my fear of being alone, isolated, flying halfway round the world and regretting it, completely vanished. My first stop on arrival in this new city was an essential: food. I went wondering down the famous Koh San Road which was five minutes round the corner from where…

When Life Throws You a Curve Ball Get On A Plane

After the news of my leaving was sent through the organization on the Friday, I had a really lovely send off. I feel so lucky and blessed to have worked with and learned from such incredible people, even if the time was shorter than I anticipated. I left on really good terms with everyone that…
