Above is a photo of Me (right) Tom (left) and Lewis (middle), the three of us will be travelling together! So you will be seeing a lot more of them as well as me.

Hello everyone, firstly, thank you for following my travel blog, it's much appreciated. I will try my best to update this on a regular basis and I hope you like it.

Today is sunday the 16th which means that we fly out in 2 days time! very exciting stuff.

Still need a few more last minute basics like mozzie spray etc. Besides that, I'm pretty much packed and ready to rock n roll (this was no way influenced by the fact i'm currently watching school of rock..) If any of you have been to any of the places that we are visiting, I would love to know any tips, advice, places to stay or things not to miss out on, let me know in the comments :)

Here is my bag all packed and ready - My tortoise shell for the next 3 months.
Wish us luck!

  3. We don't want to end up in a Thai prison haha brilliant. Good luck, I plan to do the same... in about 2 years time. xx

  4. Going to miss you all lots! Stay safe xxx

  5. I love Thailand! My mom is from there and I used to go ever other year when I was little. I went back two years ago for the first time in many years. It was my husband's first time going so my mom made sure he had the full experience. It was great to see family.

    I definitely recommend seeing the tigers, monkeys and snakes! You can take photos with the tigers.

    You can see some photos here:

  6. good luck guys! can't wait to read more about your adventures!

  8. G'Day! Greetings from Down under! ;)
    I wish you the best of luck!

  9. Thank you Everyone !

    @Laura those photographs make me even more excited! where was the tiger place ?

  10. Good luck! I am so jealous you are going to Fiji because I am half Fijian and I have never actually been. XD

  11. Lucky! that is going to be sooo much fun. I hope i can do that aswell, i'd love to travel.

  12. oh sounds like an amazing itinerary!
    I've actually been to all of those places, but not in one go! I just got back from thailand actually, and I live in Australia (and was born in the states!)
    cant wait to follow the travels, surely happy to help with any suggestions! :)
    mainly when youre in Aus. you'll no doubt pass by (Brisbane)

  13. Will miss you! and your washing!!! have a very safe journey darling....hope you get some good films and food on your flight out ...MumXX

  14. gosh! so many days in bangkok! you might get bored. :/

    rmb to hit Cha tu chak! it's a weekend market and you can find everything and anything there! (furniture/fabrics/pets/clothes)

    another place for shopping is platimum mall and the market opposite it. (: guys tee are about 150 baht per piece. more discount if you buy 3 pieces or more.

    oh. and at places like suan lam night market. BARGAIN! they are out to rip you of your cash!
    (esp since you're european. they will state a ridiculous price)

    singapore is where i come from! (:
    it'll be chinese new year during the period so some most local shops run by chinese might be closed and tourist attractions should be packed! (eg universal studios etc)

    try visiting the istana? it only opens on public holidays. not much to see/do in my opinion. but just saying since you're over during the chinese new year period.

    asia is really hot and humid! so rmb to hydrate! (:

  15. Have fun guys! Miss you lots and lots! Cant wait till you get back for a big old night in bath. Thursdays wont be the same until you get back! KEEP SAFE AND HAVE LOADSSSS OF FUN!
    Love Dobbo :) xxxx

  16. Hope you have all arrived safe and well!! Have a fab time in Bangkok!!! lots of love

  17. Hope you all arrived safe and well!! have a fab time in Bangkok!! lots of love

  18. Can't believe you are eating things that I feed the birds with here!! Have a safe journey to Singapore and then onto to a windy Australia!!xxx

  19. THANK YOU ALFIE for letting Joe talk too much!!! haha xx
