I’m sat in the lobby of the same hostel I stayed in on my last visit to Bangkok a few weeks before. Back then I didn’t have the foundations fully constructed before a huge earthquake struck and shattered my head to pieces. I had an idea that damage was coming and that’s why I was… Continue reading 4.1.2020

As the mini bus headed south on the twisty turny road from Pai to Chiang Mai a subtle smile creeped into the corners of my mouth. I was listening to Ride by Mako Road which reminds me of Max, so maybe that’s why. It had been 2 weeks since we’d in Myanmar and within a… Continue reading 27.12.2019

Thailand is a place I’ve wanted to visit ever since Year 5 when a group of people visited our school to talk about the Boxing Day Tsunami that killed hundreds and thousands of people. I remember sitting in the gymnasium, two rows from the front, listening closely to the god awful natural disaster that had… Continue reading 19.12.2019

Writing on 24th November:  Days filled with coffee and nothingness, reading and overthinking, Myanmar perhaps hasn’t been kind to my extroverted self. Whilst I have been able to find some pure and beautiful souls along my way I have just been a little bit bored of pagodas. As someone who has not yet built the… Continue reading 2.12.19

It’s been a week since I departed from the country that defined the past two years of my life. I’m not sure my brain has processed the reality of not working for 8 hours a day 5 days a week with 18 hyper energetic children but, I don’t feel any negativity towards being in a… Continue reading 16.11.19

It's okay, the white noise and fuzzy black and grey screen (that always reminded me of this specific halter neck jumper my Mum used to wear) has temporarily been suspended. I am here. My presence through my blog, instagram and facebook has been pretty sombre and non existent since I returned to Beijing, and I'm… Continue reading 26.9.18

22.8.18 (England pt.2 The Wedding)

You confidently walk through the darkness with your shoulders back and head up, sure of the final destination and content with the route you’re taking. You believe everything is as good as it can be, until you become aware of something a couple of metres behind you. It probably won’t do you any harm but… Continue reading 22.8.18 (England pt.2 The Wedding)

What are the best kinds of family relationships, you ask? Well, it's the ones where your Dad says "Oh, Years & Years played live and were on the telly the other day so I recorded it for you", whilst you are wolfing down a Tikka Masala fish in the back of the car doing 80… Continue reading 10.8.2018 (England pt.1)

(I began writing this post on the 14th) There are no words strong or heartfelt enough to describe this bitter feeling of loss blended perfectly with sheer pride. I am so very heartbroken that we did not make it to the World Cup final, that stomach churning feeling that occurred when Croatia scored to make… Continue reading 14.7.2018

I feel all over the place. There are so many little unicycles of problems, thoughts, happenings that are making stupid circles round the edge of my mind and I don't know how to stop them. Unicycles are fucking annoying. Unicycle #1: It's only 28 days until I start to make my 20 hour journey back… Continue reading 10.7.2018
