Southern Thailand - Koh Phangan Week 75: 14.04.2014 - 20.04.2014 Monday:- Today was my last full day on Koh Phangan! I had breakfast, worked out and meditated. Then we set off for lunch in Thong Sala. We parked up and had a wander around town - I wanted to see if there were any last minute souvenirs to take home. As it was once again the restaurant we wanted to try was closed and not open until 5pm. However, right next

Southern Thailand - Koh Phangan Week 74: 07.04.2014 - 13.04.2014 Monday:- The bright sunlight shining through the bedroom window woke me this morning. So, I decided to get up and go for a run. This was a major achievement! Apart from one short run a few months ago I hadn't run for nearly a year. Anyway, my running pants still fitted and so I set off. Although it was 8am it was already hot and so I ran along the road

Southern Thailand - Koh Phangan Week 73: 31.03.2014 - 06.04.2014 Monday:- So I woke up early which was good as I had a few things to do before locking up and leaving. Ocean messaged me to confirm she could take me to the airport which was a bonus in so many ways. I stripped the bedding and put on a couple of loads of laundry. I had breakfast using almost everything in the fridge and then set to with the final

Northern Thailand - Chiang Mai Week 72: 24.03.2014 - 30.03.2014 Monday:- After a lazy morning I headed into town to meet with Dennis, Honor, Oli, and .....Richard at Blue Diamond. A final goodbye! Richard left after Honor did a quick Numberology reading to get his flight and the rest of us stayed to have lunch. It was threatening to rain. The winds were up and the trees were flexing quite violently. Just when we thought we'd be sheltering at Blue Diamond

Northern Thailand - Chiang Mai Week 71: 17.03.2014 - 23.03.2014 Monday:- I woke naturally just after 6 and briefly, very briefly, considered getting up to go to immigration. As I had another option, I decided to roll over and go back to sleep. After that it was a slow morning of meditation, amongst other things. Then off to Ocean's place to meet before we set off to immigration for real. In the past I've always got up early to get my

Northern Thailand - Chiang Mai Week 70: 10.03.2014 - 16.03.2014 Monday:- I had breakfast in one of my very old haunts - 'Good morning Chiang Mai. A blow out brekkie as Oli and I were off on another road trip. Out into nature. We headed out towards the university grounds and then up into the hills. We parked the scooter at the bottom of a narrow path and followed it up, up and up towards the temple at the top. Both

Northern Thailand - Chiang Mai Week 69: 03.03.2014 - 09.03.2014 Monday:- The morning was a lazy one as once again I wasn't feeling on top form. Oh boy, have I been through a health roller coaster just lately. This could be the environment - constantly changing weather and constantly changing people around, but I'm really hoping that it's due to the much healthier lifestyle I have and so my body is detoxing all the crappy bacteria that have been lurking in

Travel Blog: Week 68

Northern Thailand - Chiang Mai Week 68: 24.02.2014 - 02.03.2014 Monday:- After my fairly standard laid back morning I met Richard for lunch. We were going to try somewhere new, to me anyway. A place called Anchan on Nimman - another veggie restaurant. Sadly, once finding it we discovered it was closed on Monday. Plan B was Bake n Bite. Delicious!!! The weather was definitely hotting up and so we headed to the GreenHill pool. We were joined first by Oli

Travel Blog: Week 67

Northern Thailand - Chiang Mai Week 67: 17.02.2014 - 23.02.2014 Monday:- So a normalish morning - workout, meditation and laundry (not necessarily in that order though). I met Honor and Joel (her latest friend to visit from Australia) at the Canal Road junction and escorted them to Oceans. Today the three of us were taking a raw chocolate workshop - we were kind of on show as Ocean had two people from travel companies attending. They were going to assess the
