Visiting ‘THE’ Beach

Today was my Mum’s birthday and we had a great day planned visiting the Phi Phi Islands.

The ferry was very different from the ones we are used to, there was row upon row of seats just like an aeroplane and we was sitting really low in the boat. It was a actually quite comfortable an [...]

Dizzy heights

The day started with a trip to Phuket town, the largest town on the island but possibly the one with the least to do.

How we’re self managing our portfolio from afar

As you may well know, we are currently travelling the world on the income from our property portfolio. Even though we have been out of the country for 5 months and do not plan on returning for another 12 months or so, the decision not to use a letting agent was an easy one for us. In the property circles there is always a big emphasis on leveraging other peoples time, and getting an agent to manag [...]
