Sandy in Thailand - Oct 2022

I’ve recently moved to Bangkok so often I feel like a tourist in my own town. There’s no better way to play tourist than when old friends come to visit. Recently, 3 dear pals spent 9 days in Thailand. We showed them our favorite places to go in Bangkok and discovered some new ones as well. During our 3 days in town, we explored various Wats (temples), marveled at giant reclining and sitting Buddhas, took TukTuk and long-tail boat rides, sampled fabulous Thai food and hit the rooftop bars for nightcaps.

Sri Lanka & the Maldives

By Sandy- March 2017

Sri Lanka is indeed a mystical land full of contradictions and fascination. We arrived in Colombo late in the evening and was met by our cheerful driver and guide, Kris. We spent our first night in total bliss at the Uga Residence. This very fine boutique hotel is a calm oasis in the busy sprawl of Sri Lanka’s capital. After a drink at the sumptuous bar, we feasted on giant prawn laksa and heavenly lemongrass sorbet. It was time to hit the hay; tomorrow would be a busy day.
