That’s a wrap…

Well, what a funny old week this one has been – both in the funny ha ha and the funny isn’t it ironic sort of way. I came to Sydney for the week expressly to deal with, support – whatever you want… Read More

Jim Thompson House…

  This post was originally published in 2013 on our previous visit to Bangkok. Given, though, that we re-visited Jim Thompson House this year, I’m re-posting…with new pics. ‘Jim Thompson?’ my husband asked, ‘who the flip is Jim Thompson?’ Ok, he didn’t… Read More
