Solving the Andaman Wi-Fi Riddle once and for all!

The beautiful Andaman Islands sit in the Bay of Bengal, just 100 kilometres from Indonesia. Surprisingly though, these islands belong to India, about 1000 kilimetres away! Travel on these islands is unique as they are home to some of the last untouched tribes in the world, Including the reportedly sometimes aggressive Jarawa, and the elusive Sentinalese.

I miss my family pets so much whilst on the road! From their Facebook page: “The goal of this clinic is to treat...

Koh Tao for Vegetarians!

Overall I have found eating in Thailand much more enjoyable than I did India. This is so surprising to me, as Indian menus are largely vegetarian, and Thai menus are not always. The biggest plus I found was the way Thai food is cooked, leaving vegetables fresh and tasty instead of over cooked like much Indian cooking.
