One of my favorite areas in Bangkok for walking is between Bang Rak and Talad Noi. A good starting point is at BTS Saphan Taksin Skytrain station, and then just wander north. These photos were tweeted live during a couple of walks in this area. They are not in any particular order. Click on a map link if you like somewhere. It should open in a map app like Google Maps. Then just save this location.
This weekend I am on a three-day trip in Northeastern Thailand. The provinces that I am visiting are Nakhon Phanom, Sakhon Nakhon, Kalasin & Khon Kaen. I’ve been invited by the Department of Mineral Resources. The theme of this trip is “dinosaurs”. I did a similar trip last year in Khon Kaen. Click here to see photo highlights of that trip. The Google Map of this trip can be seen here.

This weekend I’m in Northern Thailand for the “Creative Lamphun Festival”. As usual, I’m posting live on @RichardBarrow and Facebook. This live blog is for people who don’t have social media or for people who want to look back at my Live Photos and notes. Click here for the map of places that I’m visiting.

I’ve been doing road trips around Thailand for about 18 years or so now. I love the freedom of having your own wheels and being able to stop where and when you want. Having a car also helps in reaching those places which are not so easily accessible by public transport. However, my car was getting a bit old and I felt it too risky to go on any long road trips. I was also worried about breaking down in the middle of nowhere. So, for the last few years I’ve been doing safe one and two day trips. Now I’ve finally bought a new car and can start my road trips again. The first one was a three day, two night trip to Ratchaburi. I tweeted the following photos live during the trip.
ANZAC Day is held every year on Tuesday 25th April. For the first time, I decided to take part in the Hellfire Pass Dawn Service at 5:30am and then the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery Memorial Service at 11am. Both events were a moving experience and I’m glad that i went.
Over the period of two days, I’m in Khon Kaen province in Northeastern Thailand. The aim of the trip is to promote the dinosaur heritage of the region as well as some new and relatively unseen attractions. Apparently, as many as nine dinosaurs have been discovered in Thailand that haven’t been seen elsewhere. This means that Thais get to choose the name. On the first day I visited Phuwiang Dinosaur Museum, but there are five others in Thailand. Another one is due to open in Surat Thani soon. These photos were tweeted live during my trip.
