A Bit of Thailand: 24 Hours in Bangkok

Bangkok is a big, messy, crazy city that one either loves or hates. The tangle of streets and elevated train makes it seem futuristic in a 1970’s way – if that makes any sense at all. Think New York on speed.

24 HOURS IN BANGKOK
Now matter how it looks from the outside, the people are welcoming, the food great and the shopping spectacular. The Cypriot and I have been there a few times and always return for all those exact reasons.

Usually we are only 24 hours in Bangkok, before or after a journey elsewhere in Asia, so it seemed logical to write a post on exactly that subject. Actually it’s always a bit more than 24 hours. We give ourselves two dinners and one full day shopping. […]

Ali Reynolds, Luxury Reserve Brand Ambassador at Diageo Reserve GB

Ali Reynolds’ first love may have been sports, but after graduating from university, his job as bartender kept him inside many a basement establishment. His competitive spirit never wavered and led him to win the Oscar of the drinking world: Diageo World Class UK Bartender in 2015.

Now as brand ambassador for Diageo Reserve, he is more likely to be found upstairs rather than downstairs. Although he might be slinging fewer Blue Blazers behind a bar, Ali’s innate nature as a competitor and creator will show him to be a leader in whatever position he’s playing.

Where you can hear me drinking next:
Next time, we meet Leon Dalloway who’s also won his fair share of awards. You may bump into him leading his award winning Gin Journey […]

A Bit of Perfection – The Rachamankha, Chiang Mai, Thailand

We knew where we were going – Chiang Mai, more specifically The Rachamankha. We had been there before; in fact that’s exactly why we were returning.

I travel constantly (not a complaint, by the way), so when the Cypriot and I were planning a trip over annual Christmas holiday, we both simultaneously said, “Chiang Mai!”

I know there’s a whole world out there to explore, but it was so good the first time, we couldn’t help being drawn back again for more.

The first time round, we found ourselves making an unscheduled pit stop in Thailand’s second biggest, when our flight was diverted from Luang Prebang. A close friend of mine was actually in Chiang Mai at the same time and I rang her to ask where she […]
