Palolem Chai Shop South Goa

A warm welcome will greet you as you enter Palaolem beach, and a visit here should definitely include a visit to Mr Babu’s street food stall, especially if you’re on a budget and trying to save a few rupee’s, and I for one can vouch for his impressive “sexy chai” as he has aptly named it, and at 10 rupees it’s a steal. Continue reading

Cola Beach South Goa

Cola beach is situated 7 km from Agonda beach and a short journey of around 20 minutes along the beach road.

Working out what and who belongs to what street food kiosk is a game played by all. Continue reading

Tiger Cave Temple Krabi

We had previously heard about the Tiger Cave temple, situated 3km outside of Krabi Town the last time we were visiting Thailand, but didn’t have enough time in our schedule to follow it through. We had already trekked for 5 hours around Krabi towns main sites and river front in the heat, and the thought just popped into my head “lets go and tackle stair hell”.  This sounded a good idea at the time little knowing what was ahead of us and what punishment I was ready to put my butt & thighs through, let alone my favourite T-shirt of the moment.
