Culinary Adventures: The Thai Farm Cooking School, Chiang Mai

I love food, and could happily graze all day. If you have met me, I will have probably told you that I eat like a baby Dinosaur. Iย often think about what I’ll have for breakfast as I go to bed. That’s how into food I am. As well as eating food, I love to cook, bake and experiment. As approached my 8th week of travelling in South East Asia, I realised that...

King Climbers, Krabi, Thailand

A new chapter. New adventures...
