My relationship with trains, choo choo!

Fun post alert and why not! I have a love hate relationship with trains, not quite a Sheldon Cooper relationship; but a relationship all the same. There are several reasons why although mainly reasons why I love them so I thought I’d start with them. ~ 1, Newspapers! So my mum has two dogs and I must have a fetish for collecting newspapers I suppose. I find that the trains are always full of them, which I love. I walk to carriages collecting them and seeing how many I can collect for that journey. Instead of them being thrown in the bin they’re being used for a good cause and then recycled. Plus if I’m being honest I hardly ever see the papers being recycled around train stations so I’m happy I collect them. ~ 2, The seats. I have to admit after spending some time abroad in various countries…

Safari World Bangkok, A day with animals!

A trip to Bangkok wouldn’t be a trip without visiting safari world, or at least that’s what we got told. We decided to check it out and see what the hype was about ourselves. To begin with I made sure I did my homework. We managed to book a ticket with a rep at the hotel for only 1,100 baht although ticket price at the park is 1,400 baht per adult. Happy with a good deal we got a taxi and off we went. If you’re getting a taxi, it’s a lot quicker to take the highway although you will end up having to pay the toll charges which are normally between 100-150 baht depending on which way. I would also advise making sure the taxi doesn’t wait for you while you’re going around the park, our taxi driver tried to make out that he stayed at the park for…

Bangkok Taxis, the Scam to watch out for

While in Bangkok we had to use a few taxis and at the start of the holiday this wasn’t a big deal. It wasn’t till a few days in when we went to safari world when we had an issue. So we went to Safari world for the day and got the hotel to book us a taxi as you do, saves time and hassle. We took the highway to the safari park, toll charges were 100baht on the way there which was a shock as we didn’t know about them! The taxi altogether cost us 400baht, we tipped around 20baht. We paid, got out and the driver drove away, as you would expect? Well after spending a good few hours in the park went left, the same taxi driver was there which we thought was weird but great timing. We got the highway back which this time the toll…

The Wood Oven Bournemouth, where Pizza hits the soul!

What a tale I have to tell. If you live in Bournemouth or just visit a lot you may know about this place, then again I have lived here for almost 5 years and had no idea it existed. Possibly because it’s along the Boscombe sea front, or maybe because it used to be a public toilet; now transformed into the life of the pizza party! Whatever the reason, now that I have had a visit I would recommend anyone visit. So my partner got invited along to a blogging event here and decided to take me along, nice of him right? I had no idea what to expect which was all part of the fun. The wood oven is easy to find on the seafront and in the perfect position for everyone on holiday in the summer, they even deliver to beach huts! More on delivery later though. Once…

Valor Benidorm Trip, February 2017 Review.

Valor the chocolate trip of a lifetime or a huge flop? So in my week while I visited Benidorm I thought that it would be amazing to get out and see a little more, not just the beach and hotel room. I decided to book myself onto a chocolate factory tour, thinking it would be amazing and just as good as our holiday Rep told us it would be. We paid 12 euros each for the trip and thought it was a really good deal, looking back on it I might have paid half for the experience. Now after spending almost two hours on the coach I was ready to do something, I also needed a wee; badly! So everyone got off the coach where we had to wait five minutes for a woman to come and let us in, no introduction or anything however. We got hearded into a…
