Around Ko Lanta by Scooter

April 15, 20150 Comments

Ko Lanta is a not a large island, but walking between the beaches is not really an option if you want to sample more than the one where your hotel is located. We knew that we mostly wanted a foodie experience on our first island of this trip so we located ourselves smack bang in […]

Flashpacking Travel Koh Lanta

April 12, 20150 Comments

Koh Lanta is a popular Thailand island travel destination, especially for families with young children, Scandinavian, Dutch and German visitors.

It was hot and sticky (35 degrees plus) and we thought a […]

Our Bangkok Hotel and Restaurant Tip for 2015

April 1, 20150 Comments

Bangkok is very much the same as we remember it, there doesn’t seem to be any discernible difference from our previous visits following the recent coup.  But then we don’t live here so how would we know. It was definitely quieter though; this could be simply because we are here at a different time of the year […]
