As the sun rose over the Chao Phraya river - I felt the breeze ripple across the water. I thought about our tumultuous end to 2022. The death of my husband's father and the relocation of his wife back to her natural homeland of Thailand with family. We were both exhausted. Yet the sun, always … Continue reading Setting Intentions in Thailand
From Taco to Tostada: Inspired By Mexico
Food.... One of the very reasons I'd chosen for us to come to Mexico.

Experiencing Joy & Disappointment in Isla Holbox
I'd done my research. It was a visit to Isla Holbox I wanted. All the photos looked lovely, the descriptions so positive, a little information on how if the rains came, it flooded the sandy roads and turned them into mud, had been read. We were prepared for some elements of roughing it. It is … Continue reading Experiencing Joy & Disappointment in Isla Holbox
A Sense of Wonder, Thankfulness & Appreciation of Life.
Cancun. A place I'd never thought of visiting. Mexico - offered the food I love. Our street food business an homage to thai and tex-mex, so what was there not to like in changing our plans.

How To Do A Day Out In Dubrovnik
We stayed in Cavtat as we wanted to be close enough too but not stay within Dubrovnik itself. As when researching, we discovered that Dubrovnik could be very, VERY busy and despite being told that tourism was only at around 30% on a normal year in September it truly was! My preference had been to … Continue reading How To Do A Day Out In Dubrovnik

My Most Meaningful Staycation…
It all started when I was employed to work on the tropical island of Koh Chang. The resort style facility where I was based, tucked in its jungle heart. A beautiful yet extremely hilly place to reside. I so wanted the courage to ride a scooter on the island but that courage I realise now, … Continue reading My Most Meaningful Staycation…
Get Out, Explore Life and Find Your Bliss In Gran Canaria
Coming out of work from Hotel RIU Palace Maspolomas, the spanish words 'mesa para una por favor' ran through my mind. Table for One. I was trying my best to pick up spanish quickly - pushing myself in fact. I wanted to be fluent in the language as soon as I could. As much as … Continue reading Get Out, Explore Life and Find Your Bliss In Gran Canaria
A Cherished Anniversary Celebration in the Cotswolds
My husband looks well, despite it only being a little over three months ago, when we didn't know if he would live or die, whilst intubated in ICU fighting for his life, after contracting Covid-19 pneumonia. The path to wellness is indeed an interesting one. I'm recognising the firsts which are happening. We enjoyed our … Continue reading A Cherished Anniversary Celebration in the Cotswolds
