Asian Ketchup

Tuesday’s Travel Rant: Asian Ketchup

As you guys know I love Asia, and I love my new ‘home’ Thailand – probably even more than my ‘old home’ Ireland, but nowhere is perfect. And although Thailand comes close, they’ve committed a cardinal sin and I’m not happy… So here you are,...

Tuesday’s Travel Rant: Getting Lost in Words

“A man who speaks two languages is worth two men” – it may be famous but it doesn’t mean it’s true. Imagine this scenario… I’m sitting on a train, my seat is supposed to be 14A but I choose to sit on 14B. It doesn’t particularly bothe...
