Ship Life

Here's another landmark to add to the still relatively young 2013. As you will most likely already know from my previous posts, I've been waiting to be assigned a ship for my new job. Six weeks ago, whilst on Koh Tao, sitting in the office of a small production company, I got an email. This… Continue reading Ship Life

Cleaning a Tuk-Tuk

We've had another busy week. Both Mos and I have both had a birthday, we've been to the cinema, twice. And, we bought a latex plantation. After a quite and relaxed day at home, apart from a trip to the cinema, for my birthday, we started to get our stuff together to head back to… Continue reading Cleaning a Tuk-Tuk

Latex Plantation

This week we've been over in north-east Thailand. Bueng Kan to be specific. As you may have noted previously, this is where my wires family live. Mother, step-father and step-brother. But as she has grown up with her step-father from such a young age, we call him dad. On our previous visit to Bueng Kan… Continue reading Latex Plantation

Khao San, our new dog

At one of the supermarkets Mos and I regularly use, Little C, as we like to call it. It's a BigC, but there is a bigger one further up the road. Anyway, unlike supermarkets in the UK the supermarkets here are normally all raised up, with a mixture of parking, stalls and shops under them. One… Continue reading Khao San, our new dog

Mos' friend, Macky, who is a nurse in Bangkok, told us that she was planning on visiting Chiang Mai for a short break. She had just left her job, and had a gap before her new job started. I'd never met Macky before, aside from a few short messages on Facebook. Mos had met her… Continue reading Sleeping on a Helipad

Huay Tung Tao Lake

We've now met all of our neighbours, bar one, but they never seem to come outside. Our immediate neighbours are a mother (Inn) and daughter (Daisy, 1) decided to head out to Chiang Mai 'beach'. Those of you that have been to Chiang Mai, or know that it's located in Northern Thailand right up in the mountains… Continue reading Huay Tung Tao Lake

Elephant Nature Park

As soon as I arrived back in Chiang Mai, from Bangkok, I got a phone call saying that I was going to be picked up at 07:00 in the morning. We were providing production services for Leopard Films in America to film their House Hunters International series. It's an ongoing project that the company has… Continue reading Elephant Nature Park

The Beginning

On the 14 March 2012 I got married on the remote island of Koh Tao, 50 miles East from the coast of Chumphon, Thailand. Having lived and worked on Koh Tao at various points during the last few years, and having met my now wife on the island, it was the perfect location for us… Continue reading The Beginning
