I used to be a fat wimp. I remember going to the gym and looking enviously at the guys with big muscles. For a few years now I’ve spent a bit of time at the gym, but never really knowing what I should be doing, lifting wimpy weights and never following a plan. Everything changed [...]
Well, I wish this post was about the beautiful light-skinned Thai girls up here in Chiang Mai but unfortunately the fever I’m referring to is a temperature I’ve had for four days now.
Today I woke up in a cold sweat which has become routine for my last four nights. I’ve been running a 99.3 degree [...]

Upon arrival you’re greeted with breathtaking rock formations that shoot straight up from warm, crystal clear waters that surround beaches with luxuriously soft, bright white sand filling the palm tree lined beaches. Long [...]
Sparkling like an irregularly shaped pearl off Thailand’s far southern peninsula, the island of Phuket has been blessed with jungle-topped mountains, planted on their lower slopes with rubber trees and coconut palms and valleys patterned with lush rice paddies.
