sleepy Koh Chang

sleepy Koh Chang

Posted from Ko Chang, Trat, Thailand. I need to face facts. While I do love the country and being in the wilderness, the city-girl in me can only go so long without my bright lights and chaos before I begin to wonder if civilization has imploded. After one quiet, relaxing and mosquito bite-filled week in Koh Mak […]

tips for staying in a hut

tips for staying in a hut

Posted from Koh Chang Tai, Trat, Thailand. It’s low season and I’m kind of bored. And happy. And calm. But bored. It’s a side-effect of being sober and being alone, or so I’ve concluded. Or it’s because I’m in a hut on a nearly deserted island living rustically. But before I get into my tips […]

Koh Mak – the secret paradise

Koh Mak – the secret paradise

Posted from Ko Mak, Trat, Thailand. When a traveler comes across something special, like a magical or idyllic place unspoiled by the riggers of tourism and commercialism, especially in Thailand, they get very excited. Welcome to Koh Mak. The true quest of a serious traveler is to discover such a place. To tell only those […]

Pattaya to Koh Mak

Pattaya to Koh Mak

Posted from Laem Ngop, Trat, Thailand. Trying to figure out my way to Koh Mak from Pattaya during low season wasn’t as straight and narrow as one would think. But it’s easy to get there once you know the ins and outs. The thing about low season is many services are on hiatus until the […]

Posted from Pattaya, Chon Buri, Thailand. After diving on Koh Tao I decided to head back up to Bangkok for a few days to do some shopping I neglected to do two weeks before and spend some more time with my friend. Plus, since she has weekends off, we decided we would head to Pattaya […]

The carvings’ influences are mainly Buddhist and Hindi, taking from ancient stories and culture from parts of Asia. The four corners/towers have sculptures from ancient Thai, Khmer, Chinese and Indian beliefs and religions. From the website, “The purposes […]

quiet Koh Tao (and I saw a whale shark!)

quiet Koh Tao (and I saw a whale shark!)

From Bangkok’s Hualamphong Train Station I caught the #85 train (departs 7:30 p.m.) to Chumphon, securing myself an upper berth and a joint on-going bus (from the train station to the pier) and ferry transfer with the Lomprayah company to Koh Tao for 1,200 Baht. There are buses to Chumphon, but after reading many mixed […]

back in Bangkok

back in Bangkok

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand. It took three hours in Bangkok for a bird to poop on me. People say it’s a good sign, but I think the people who say this saw Under the Tuscan Sun and have never been shit on by a pigeon. I tried to brush it off, literally, with a […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
