You Had Me At Merlot: Continuing Thailand Wine Weekend at PB Valley Vineyards thumbnail

After a fabulous Thai wine weekend kick off at GranMonte Vineyards, we were on to our second stop of the day, PB Valley. Appropriately, PB Valley -- formerly known as Khao Yai Winery -- was the second vineyard in the country to attempt growing wine grapes. Yet as the first winery to open in the now…

Wine Not? Kicking off A Thailand Wine Weekend at GranMonte Vineyard thumbnail

Think Thailand and drinking, and it's likely you'll conjure toasting to the sunset with one of the country's internationally famous beer brands, Chang or Singha. Or perhaps dancing on the beach with a brightly colored pail of cheap whiskey and soda with a handful of straws chucked in. Or maybe sipping an overpriced cocktail at a…

Celebrating Yi Peng and Loy Kratong on Koh Tao thumbnail

A Year in Paradise: Koh Tao’s Annual Events and Festivals thumbnail

You may have picked up by now that I love any excuse to celebrate, don a costume or pop a bottle of (probably fake, if we're talking Thailand) champagne -- festivals and holidays are my jam! Lucky for me, Koh Tao knows how to party -- it's one of the things I love about this island…

Scuba-ing Solo? My Review of the PADI Self Reliant Diver Course thumbnail

I miss diving. Long time readers may have noticed that over the last few years I've been logging less and less time underwater. That's not because my interest in diving has waned -- far from it! It's pretty much the same reason that many divers stay dry for too long. Work gets busy, bad weather provides…

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. "Domestic disaster" doesn't seem to quite cover a past that has included the fire department being summoned during an attempt at boiling macaroni in the…
