My Internet has gone down again today. It’s a Sunday, should there be anyone doing anything at an exchange on a Sunday? I wouldn’t think so, but this is Thailand. So who knows. It’s been out for half hour and I have reset the modem twice, to no avail.
We’ve been in Hua Hin, Thailand for the last few days, and tomorrow we head on back to Phuket – well, we’ll probably spend a night at Ranong on the way back. Suffice to say, this has been a very nice place to come and visit. Maybe even stay longer than a visit. It’s hard […]

When I have moved I have generally flown (occasional bus, and once a train) everywhere. We’ve been in Bangkok for the last few weeks and this […]
I have had the Canon EF-S 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 (dpreview.com review here) lens for about 2 years now, and although (as far as Canon lenses go), it gets a pretty bad rap. For general shooting in most situations, it certainly beats swapping out lenses while on the go. Recently the zoom capability just stopped, I couldn’t […]
I’ve been living in Thailand coming up to a year in December and although in the tropics, I’ve never really seen too much rain here. About my 2nd ever trip to Thailand, I think it rained everyday, and although I’ve seen bad bouts of weather (raining for say a week or whatever), it’s always been […]
Having been born and raised in a western society (Australia), where food preparation and service of same have some pretty (what I would consider) rudimentary laws; I am constantly surprised by what I perceive to be inadequate in other countries, and yet the only time I have ever been sick was due to food cooked […]
I was fortunate enough to be sitting in Starbucks on the 3rd floor when this lingerie/fashion show just happened below me. Unfortunately, the staff of Starbucks eventually came and told me to stop taking photos… The first one is my favourite shot. There are two prominent Thai’s in these photos. Apparently they are well known […]
Getting a Thai Driver/Rider License in Phuket. This turns out to be a two day process but both are very short. You MAY be able to pull this off in one, but I didn’t bother trying. Day 1 – getting your proof of address for Thailand. This can be done a number of ways. You […]
