About Us


We are a married couple who will be retiring in 2014 and moving to Thailand to experience life in another culture and experience adventures we could have only dreamed of a few years ago.

You are welcome to join us on our adventures through this blog. We hope you enjoy the trip as much as we do.

Giant Giraffe And A Cup Of Tea

There is a place in Hua Hin, Thailand where you can easily imagine being in more than one place at a time.

You feel the sea breeze on your skin. Where are you?

Sitting in the open air lobby of a 1920's Victorian building while taking tea and listening to lovely harp music. Where are you?

Strolling immaculate gardens with topiary animals that reach 20 feet high. Where are you?





All of this and more can be experienced at the Sofitel Centara Grand Resort, formally known as “The Railway Hotel.” The Museum Coffee and Tea Corner is rated #1 on Trip Advisor restaurant reviews.


Choose from Afternoon Tea or High Tea, sit back and relax while Chiara Capobianco enchants you with her musical skills on her harp. It truly was the best place we could have chosen to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary.



                                                          We lingered for 3 hours!

















After we had our fill of all the tasty morsels we took pictures of some of the museum pieces.








This photograph was taken in 1984 during the filming of the movie “The Killing Fields” The hotel was used in the movie as being depicted in Phenom Penh, Cambodia


Topiaries appear to be wandering and flying around the grounds. Some of them were kind enough to stand still for a photo op.




















     We needed a bit of exercise after our meal so we walked home via the beach.
