I think by now you may well know I
like, nej love cheese. So when FIX contacted me with their guide to grilled cheese, I was all ears – & mouth, so expect a lot of jaw dropping, dribbling and a grumbly tum inducing post coming your way.
Riding elephants & stroking adult tigers seem to be a quintessential thing to do whilst visiting this beautiful country. People queue up without a care in the world to see these tremendous & beautiful creatures up close & you can certainly see why, it appears to be an amazing experience.
Tube strikes seem to be happening like London buses at the moment, there are none for a while then three lots come along at once. This in turn makes an already busy commute, cramped, three times slower, hotter & in some cases non-existent.
Skip from St John’s wood station along Grove end Road and you’ll come to the famous Abbey Road crossing surrounded by the obligatory swarm of tourists. We wormed our way through and up to Blenheim Terrace to Yasmeen.
I don’t think we had any bad experiences with food in Thailand, but I thought I’d organise this fantastic bunch into price brackets for you. If you’re staying in Bo Phut these are all easy to get to, furthest being Talay Cafe on Mae nam which is a 10 minute taxi ride, if that. Continue reading

So why put yourself through it? Well for one thing, the destinations are magical and vastly different of your own corner of the world, but also because I have a few tricks to avoid these as best you can!
Another early start, washing down breakfast with a strong coffee and we were off in the coach to Nathon, the Capital of Koh Samui. This is a locals town, where the port is and definitely worth a visit for the night market and food stalls!
With this journey unlike the Snorkelling, you can either take a speedboat or a slow boat, the slow boat only takes 30 minutes longer, is cheaper & includes the island landing fee which the speedboat doesn’t. Patrick and I have got good sea legs so clambered up to the sun deck so we could watch everything go by & internally shout “thar be land ahead” – okay maybe that last part is just me.
