    This time tomorrow I will be on my way to the Philippines! I am feeling slightly nervous of course but at the same time I am getting excited. I can not wait to get away from the rubbish weather here in the UK! At the moment, It is around 31 degrees C in Tacloban City. I love the sun!

    "Same, same, but different" is a slogan printed on t-shirts sold in tourist shops all over Thailand' and it perfectly sums up the cultural differences between east and west. Whilst Tesco Lotus, Starbucks and McDonalds abound, the plastic life-size Ronald McDonald standing outside the fast-food joint in Krabi has his hands in a traditional Wai - like he's praying.
