Anyone travelling to Thailand will be familar with Phuket, Krabi and the Phi Phi islands – which are all within the same south western coast of Thailand. But many overlook the leser developed Koh Yao Noi (Northern island) and Koh Yao Yai (Southern larger island) – these are right in the middle of Pha nga bay.
Filmmaker Philip Bloom captures the essence the the laid back island in a captivating and insightful film.
Randomly browsing on the internet, I stumbled upon this unique blog called ‘1001 Libraries to visit before you die’. Looking through the posts, I was facinated by the history of each of the buildings featured on the site and how diverse each of the locations were in purpose, size and architecture. Even some of the local Australia libraries were featured on the blog. It proves that sometimes the places that hold and store books, can actually be interesting themselves. Definately check it out!
So it’s been a while since i’ve ventured off overseas. This time I’m headed to Japan and Singapore! Singapore I’ve been once before and i’m headed back there to check out the places i missed out on last time. Also the sights that have appeared since – such as Gardens by the bay!
On the otherhand, Japan is a totally different scenario. I’ve never been there before and i’m sure it will be a bit of a shock – with all the sights and especially the spaghetti of train systems. But I have some Japanese freinds to meet up with and places written where i’d like to visit. Should be a great adventure!
