Our Top Five Coffee Shops in Chiang Mai
A quick round up of our favorite places for a coffee in Chiang Mai
Chiang mai - Home to hundred year old temples, crumbling city walls, culture, and….coffee shops. Lots and lots of coffee shops and cafes.
Now I am one who loves a coffee as much as the next coffee loving person, but try as I might I will never be able to sample all of the coffee shop pleasures that this great city offers.
You have cute and sassy, trendy and upmarket, cheap or expensive. There are hippie hangouts, student hives and peaceful retreats. A simple black coffee can range in price from 30 baht to 130 baht. Yes. 130 baht! There are some coffee shops you can’t miss, plastered with novelty signs and bright eye catching décor while others go for a more discreet display which you could easily walk past and not even know it was there.
Train Travel Through India
A real account of what it is like to travel on an overnight train in India
Eight years ago Jmayel and I spent two months traveling through India, we trawled up and down the country, through the bustling culture shock city of Delhi, sat peacefully in the Taj Mahal as Jmayel’s shoes were stolen in Agra. We roamed the Pink City of Jaipur and accepted an invitation to attend an Indian wedding from a Rickshaw driver.
Us in the Taj Mahal….Jmayel couldn’t look more like a tourist if he tried!
Our rickshaw driver, Ram invited us to his cousins wedding
We sat looking down on the ruins and stared wide eyed at the otherworldly rock formations in the unusual town of Hampi, walked across the bed of the (at the time) dried up lake in our favorite place of Udaipur and enjoyed the un-hassled air.

Post Repair- J Practicing flying the Steadidrone QU4D - Looking Cool ;-)
In our never ending quest to be the best at what we do, it was only a matter of time before we bought a Quadcopter Radio Controlled Aerial Drone so that we could take our videos to new heights. ;-) hehe However being a ‘Quadranaught’ in training requires a certain amount of crashing into trees and paddy fields, which ultimately led me on a quest to find a Quadcopter multirotor repair shop in Chiang Mai.
Our Air Bnb Apartment stay in Bangkok
Our first experience of booking an apartment in Bangkok through Air Bnb
“This place looks perfect” I said to Jmayel as I was scrolling through lists of accommodation on Air Bnb, searching for an affordable apartment in Bangkok. After hours of searching the internet for somewhere to stay after my surgery at Yanhee hospital I had found the ideal apartment.

List of things to prepare you for Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand - Breast Lift
Tips and information on having a Breast lift procedure in Bangkok, Thailand
This is a follow up post to my experience of having a cosmetic breast lift surgery at Yanhee Hospital in Bangkok.
When I was researching having the procedure, I couldn’t find the information that I was looking for all in one place. I wanted to know as much as I could about what it was like to have a breast lift as well as the all the little things that go with having surgery, so I could be as prepared as possible.
I was looking for lists of what I should take to the hospital, things that I might need after being discharged from under hospital care and generally what to expect.
You can read my comprehensive account of having a breast lift in Bangkok, but this post is my version of what I was looking for pre surgery.
