More tantalizing tales ->

Although it feels like I've lived in Thailand for a millennium, it's actually only been about 3 and a half years. I came to Thailand as a tourist on the end of a Round-The-World trip, taking in South and Central America, the UK and my final destination was lovely Thailand before my planned return to sunny Brisbane, my home town. Fate threw that plan out the proverbial with the devastating tsunami in December 2004 which had me packing up and moving to Khao Lak on the south-western coast of Thailand to volunteer in the disaster relief. The 5 months I spent there were devastating, confronting, overwhelming but also a true gift as I met so many genuine people and made so many treasured friends. Oh yeah, and I met my husband Jay there too! Jay is Thai and lives in a village not too oft visited by tourists (I've seen about 4 in the 2.5 years I've lived here!). After the whole lurve thang hit we moved back to the ville and have been living with the EVIL mother-in-law and the angel father-in-law for all the time since. This blog was to ease my insanity levels steming from having no one to communicate with in my own language and it's a long established fact that girls NEED to gasbag, hello! So, thanks for visiting and if you want to chat to me in private send me an email to I'd love to hear from you.
