About Us

So, Hey Who’s Big Turtle Small Owl you say


British and the Thai the couple sat on top of the world
See into our lives….
While writing about our journey on my 6 month visa to England just for our family and friends to keep track on we ended up getting some great responses.
We met in August 2014 2 years later had enough of being apart so I quit my job and went to England for 6 months then Mark quit his job to follow back to Bangkok and beyond, Long distance relationships do work if you are willing to work at it believe us we know. Before I went to England we decided that was the last time we will ever be apart.
We are currently in Bangkok where mark is going to school a couple of days a week learning Thai language. The rest of the time we will be exploring my home country together.
Have you ever wondered what your life will be like in 10 years, well we have and this is what we will look back on and think about the good times we had.
Be prepared to witness some crazy videos and outrageously corny photos with some perfectly timed funny moments. When you’re in love you don’t mind how you look in a photo just the fact that you have someone to share that moment with makes you happy.


Why Big turtle small owl you say!…

As you may have guessed Mark is the turtle and I am the Owl, we were thinking of a travel blog name while we were still apart many ideas came up but this one stuck, Big turtle because Mark loves turtles and the Small Owl because I used to wake up very early morning just so we could talk for a few hours when Mark finished work this time there was a 6 hour time difference but now I wake up early morning to work on my projects being this travel blog.
Who are we….



Mark (The Turtle)

Hi, my name is Mark my friends call me Ched, I was born in the north-west of England. As you may have guessed I love turtles especially if they have ninja skills.
I was a Carpenter/ Joiner back in England making things from wood houses tables anything really in 2017 I decided to leave all that behind me so I quit my job and followed my heart. Scary back then I mean you read of people doing it but the feeling when you do it yourself going into the unknown, but ask me now was it worth it? Yes! Totally it was worth every moment
I am currently in Bangkok learning Thai. Difficult? yes but I’m getting there slowly.





Oor (The Owl)

Hi, My name is Orawan, you can call me Oor its a very easy name but I like it. I am the owl because when I finished work and came back to my room the first thing I did is shower and sleep ^__^ I used to wake up around midnight to work on my hobby (I Design jewelry with stones) and to talk with my boyfriend (Mark) he always finishes work around this time.
The time then for us was very different (around 6 hours) but it wasn’t a problem for me, I could do it because I love him. Then I will sleep again same time with him, it is little funny but I always did this all the time. Now that we are together I always stay up late working on our business and blog while mark is snoring at the side of me.
I love traveling because I can find inspiration for my jewelry designs and design of my life. I like learning about people from other counties and their cultures (Different people different thinking).
I love to take photographs, Photos create everlasting memories we can share with people all the places we have been and when I’m older I can look back on of them. I especially love traveling with my boyfriend he is my rock I feel safe when I am with him (like hero protect ^0^).
I am currently working for a company in Bangkok about Gemology its hard work but good for experience.
One day I wish open my own company about jewelry design (Its my dream)
