Job-hunting in North-East Thailand

Well, job-hunting and snake-hunting to be exact.

So the morning of all mornings finally arrived and it was time for me to become a teacher; a giver of knowledge, a mentor; all of these things. Who was I trying to kid?


What can be learnt from the Koh Tao Murders?

What are Thailand's real dangers?

The tragic deaths of Hannah Witheridge and David Miller on Koh Tao last month made headlines across the world. It led newspapers and tourists to wonder - 'How could these brutal murders take place on an idyllic island in the Land of Smiles?'


Surviving Thailand's roads

How to avoid becoming just another statistic

Children's day

What this special day should really signify

What you may not know about her

Tales from Thai society

The story begins with a new foreigner who came to our village two years ago. He was an Australia man, strong and handsome, not so old, but he spoke no Thai and never smiled. I would see him sometimes, with his wife, at the local noodle shop. She was from the tambon, the small town about fifteen minutes bicycle ride from my farm.


The city is theirs!

Thailand - the home of all things that bite, sting, crawl, creep or scurry.

There are many dangers awaiting the new arrival in Thailand, but never underestimate what might be under the roof or under the floorboards.
