Clipping the wings on a ‘Free Spirit’ is like asking them not to breath… Traveling Alone…we all do it and many return home a different person.

This is one of my favourites as I think I have a fascination for Bells! It is taken on the way up to ‘The Golden Mount’ in Bangkok. A well know tourist attraction that takes you up over 10 steps to a Golden Temple over looking Bangkok. /* */

Thai Songkran Festival  New Years Celebration Now this looks like the most fun you could have during New Year Festivities if ever I have seen! What appears to be a humongous water fight is actually called ‘Songkran‘. Its’ meaning bascically implies the passing of the sun into a new Zodiac sign. This time around it enters Aries, […] /* */

The Grand Palace, Bangkok, Thailand Finally after stalking these Monks within The Grand Palace for an hour I managed to get this photo. I am fascinated with Monks and I just wish I knew what they were all thinking… What do you think is going through their minds? /* */

The end of last week had me struggling with myself emotionally and physically. I was sore and missing home terribly. Yes I could have just hopped on the next plane out of here but this is ultimately what this challenge of mine is about. Stepping out of my comfort zone and into the unknown…and what […] /* */

With a slow start to the morning after drinking one to many Changs the girls and this ‘Lil Piggy’ had decided to head to the markets in Chalong, about a 20 minute ride north of Rawai. We caught a mini-bus from camp as it worked out cheaper for us all at the bargain price of […] /* */

Momentum has finally found its way to me in the last day or two days here as my fitness levels have certainly had a boost. But even if it is now the weekend there was still two sessions of training to get through before I could relax with a well deserved bottle of Chang Beer. And didn’t those […] /* */

6am run and I am lost in a back street and my supposed shortcut decided to be well ….NOT. I could not seem to get myself out of this maze I found myself in but yet managed to get a lift back to where I had started by another foreigner. Did I look lost? Of course not! […] /* */

What was I thinking! This was the question I asked myself numerous times today. Seriously! Yes, being my spontaneous self I jumped on a plane to Thailand within days of resigning from my position in the corporate world and am now living in Rawai Beach, Southern Thailand for one month.
