How to Get Free Domestic Lounge Access at Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi)

How to Get Free Domestic Lounge Access at Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi)

If you’re like me, maybe you’ve had the experience of your taxi driver taking you to Don Mueang instead of Suvarnabhumi and you’ve missed your flight.   Careful You Don’t Miss Your Flight Once your at Don Mueang airport, it’s an absolute bitch getting to Suvarnabhumi. It will cost you 500thb in a taxi or over an hour in the free bus between the airports. When I finally made it from DMK to BKK, I was down about 3,000thb (~$100USD)…

Getting the Most Out of a Weekend in Krabi

Krabi region is a large area on the South Coast of Thailand on the Andaman Sea towards the Malaysian border.   The two main townships there are Krabi Town and Ao Nang beach with both of them offering unique benefits.   When I first went to Krabi, I stayed in Krabi town for some down time while waiting for some friends who were flying down from Bangkok for a weekend away from the city. What had been half a week…

Interviewing Paul From TravelisLife.org – Lessons Learned From a Professional Traveller and Serial Entrepreneur

I really am thrilled to be able to publish this interview with Paul. Not in the hard to believe way that a daytime TV host might say they’re thrilled to introduce their next guest, but I want to emphasise how much quality insight has landed on this page directly from Paul’s brain.   I’m really happy to publish this, but it’s with a twinge of guilt. In my haste to send off a bunch of questions to Paul, I was…

How to Spend 72 Hours in Bangkok

How to Spend 72 Hours in Bangkok

I find myself hardly doing any touristy things at all. Budgetary constraints are a small part of why and the main reason is now that I’m living here for a while, I quickly wanted to slip into normal, everyday life.   Everyday life seems antithetical to the adventure that we seek in travel and it quite often can be, but when you first get to a new location just noticing the contrasts between everyday life here and in your own…

Bloggers Block | Open Letter for Advice From Other Bloggers

I have been on the road again for three weeks. Not exactly “on the road” but I have been staying in Bangkok this whole time after finally extricating myself from Australia once more. I love Australia but I have travel in my blood, so while it’s my favourite country (so far) I know it very well (better than most Australians) and still have the need to travel. I have come across a strange conundrum. Now that I am travelling again…

Travel is Glamorous and Romantic From the Safety of Your Lounge

Literally.   There’s some really awesome motivational photos on Pinterest and Instagram showing someone with a backpack standing atop a mountain, overlooking a lake and just looking motivational in general.   If you’ve ever climbed up a mountain you’ll know that by the time you reach the top you’ll be out of breath, sweaty and laying on the ground. If by chance you have…

Born Again Travel Blogger | Fighting the Fear That You Might Not Travel Again

I’m of the opinion that using the phrase “wow, what an *adjective* *noun* it has been…” as an opener is a lazy use of literary devices. But seriously, wow what a journey it has been getting back to Thailand. If you don’t already know, I’m living in Bangkok baby! It’s been a strange turn of events, but that’s the exciting thing about travel. The short version of my recent journey up until now was that I travelled through Thailand on…

6 Easy to Overlook Things You Need to Do, When Moving to the UK

6 Easy to Overlook Things You Need to Do, When Moving to the UK

When I remember back to when I first started blogging, I told myself I wouldn’t venture into list based articles, because some pretentious, puritan and wankerish part of my brain told me that’s what I needed to do to “not sell out”. I was wrong. Ask my girlfriend, and she’ll tell you that it’s a miracle to hear those words from me. So it turns out that lists, make information easily “digestible” and it’s just a matter of formatting, not…
