And Now Onto Chopping: A Koh Tao Cooking Class for the Domestically Challenged thumbnail

It is safe to say that one of my primary motivations for living part-time in Thailand is the availability and affordability of meals that someone else other than myself has prepared.

Bar Hopping and Boat Bopping: Another Weekend in Bangkok thumbnail

If you follow Alex in Wanderland on Facebook, you might have caught my announcement that I'm headed to Newfoundland to visit Ian's family -- so it's perfect timing to share this post about his family's visit to us in Thailand!

In a country beloved by bloggers, can you share something original with the internet? This was my year of attempting to…

A Weekend of Beachfront Charm on Koh Phangan thumbnail

It was like clockwork: after a little over a month back on Koh Tao, I was itching for a mini getaway again. Nothing major, just a teeny change of scenery to scratch my travel itch. So it couldn't have been more perfect that I was already planning a weekend away on my neighboring island of Koh…
