    Hello again!So, mel and I enjoyed a lovely weekend off in chiang mai. We went along to that different market on the Monday night but it turned out to be a lot more manic than the Sunday one, so we weren't that keen. We both got quite harassed by the sellers, to which one point I literally had to drag mel to get away from this man! Ooooo, so we were in …

    Another great weekend off! So mel and I headed of to chiang mai on Sunday afternoon and got to the guesthouse to drop our stuff off before heading out again. It feels weird me showing someone else around chiang mai as it has usually been me looking like a tourist! The town felt so big when I first came and now I'm walking around as if it's sunny Brighton. So, of …

    Today has been a positively uplifting day, I'm finally starting to feel better and my ears seem to be hearing normal sounds again which is encouraging! We have a new volunteer from new zealand who joined us on Tuesday and she's really lovely. She has asked if she can come with me for my nights off in  Chiang mai this weekend. I said "well as long as you can put …

    Hey,Sorry it's been a while (well only a few days really!) but anyway...I have been a tad unwell with these ear infections, I got back to the shelter after a couple of nights off and seemed to turn feverish. I'm still not sure if I'm hot or if I'm cold! So annoying. I'm secretly hoping this is all going to be of great benefit to the weight loss plan!I decided …

    Another very busy day Morning at the shelter today! Our cosa girls went swimming so 4 volunteers went with them and then we had lots of the community kids coming in for English lessons, so I took the younger ones and another volunteer took the older ones. At first it was going really well, they were quite young and really didn't know much at all... So so realised I needed …

As you know weekends here are our busiest times as the girls are around all day, plus we get some of the community kids coming in. Anyway so I got a message from nicci last night saying she would take me to the pharmacy first thing. When she arrived, she said shall we take …

    I want to start with a bit of a moan... So I'm sorry about this. I have another ear infection... I know right, the story of my life is it not?! I'm actually in quite a bit of discomfort with this one as I've had about a week or so's break from infected ears, I should've known  it wouldn't last long. I can hardly hear out of my left ear …

    Today I came to the realisation that I am officially halfway through my trip! I've got a horrible feeling the next few weeks are going to go mega quick as well! :( We've got 3 Australian girls volunteering with us for a week, it's been really nice because they seem quite similar to me... They talk a lot! Haha.I've been trying to mentally get in the best mindset I can while …
