If you’re planning a Thailand trip and are looking for day trips from Phuket then look no further. There are so many different trips that you can go on to the nearby islands, but this was the one I found that appealed to me the most.
Have you ever wanted to get a tattoo to commemorate your trip, but have worried about the cleanliness or the safety of getting a tattoo abroad? Here is my experience of getting a tattoo in Bangkok and some tips to make sure that your travel tattoo is a positive one.
A lot of people question my decision to travel on my own. They ask me if I get lonely or if I feel safe or they tell me how brave I am to do it. But honestly, traveling alone is the best decision I’ve ever made in my life.
If you want to go travelling but have no idea where to start, this post is for you. This is going to be a list that can be applied to any location, but with examples from my travels around Thailand.
When I went travelling on my own for the first time, one of the most daunting things to me was the airport. The thought of going through the whole process on my own was unthinkable. It’s not that bad but here are some things to consider to help prepare you.
