a thailand holiday treasure

thailand thumbs upHiya – I recently went on holiday to Thailand on Intrepid’s Treasures of the North trip and had an amazing holiday experience.

Now I am back home and still pining for the warmth and excitement of Thailand; my wonderful group; and our superstar leader, Ben!

Ben really ensured we all had a great time throughout the Thailand trip and cajoled those of us who were intimidated by food we weren’t familiar with, to give it all a go! Although my mission was to try as many Thai curries as possible, Ben gave us even more fab food adventures. Although porridge is my breakfast staple at home, the Thai version (with meat balls and egg) she introduced us to was a real feast to start the day!

Then, almost every day we had to cool down with an iced lolly (Ben’s favourite) from the market – you can’t imagine how many colours and flavours ice comes in! My all-time perfect dessert that Ben introduced us to though, were the triangles of sticky rice with banana (wrapped conveniently in a ‘carry case’ of banana leaves). No wonder I am struggling to fit into my jeans now! 🙂

Cheers and big thanks from the group to Ben, for making our trip so special.
