Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.
Bella Italia very good Italian food

A very good value restaurant
Bella Italia very good Italian food
Bella Italia very good Italian food at a reasonable price. Two locations with the same menu. One in 2nd Road near Soi 6 & the other Naklua Soi 33. There is a wood fired pizza oven on the right as you enter the restaurant.
Enter from 2nd Rd,
A large outdoor dining area keeps the smokers happy I guess.
Much better to dine inside with the air conditioning.
Service here is always very good along with the food.
A perfect entre to share
Melon & Prosciutto, Bella Bella. 🙂
My Italian friend from Australia Roland Bonici.
Roland is a well known Sydney barrister who loves all types of food, especially Italia. 🙂
Pasta to die for
The pasta is excellent as you would expect.
As was the salmon
Lots of variety at Bella Italia very good Italian food.
How about some Italian sausage?
As you can see this restaurant is a lot more than just pasta & pizza. 🙂
Bella Italia very good Italian food is very popular with the locals.
The main branch in 2nd Rd is usually quite busy.
Oh well, why not finish an ice cream sunday?
Sadly I do have a sweet tooth. 🙂
A nice group of friends

Thanks for visiting my Bella Italia very good Italian food photo blog.
My history, particularly over the last 30 years is dominated by overseas travel. I sold my home in Australia October 20th 2011 and have have been living in Thailand since then. I don’t know where the time has gone? It seems like you go to sleep one night, wake up the next morning, and 20 years have flashed by. Not sure how many years I have left, however I have enjoyed a wonderful charmed life, and if it all ended today I would leave this world with no regrets.
I was born in Sydney halfway through the last century, started my travels in the 60s with the usual U.K. Europe adventure at the age of 20, back to Australia and worked in Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide in Sales & Marketing with multinational companies including Sanyo, Canon & Remington.
Engaged to be married 3 times and never quite made it to the alter, finally realized by the mid 90s I was not cut out for "long term relationships" so I moved to the Gold Coast in Queensland in January 1987, worked for a couple of banks as a Financial Planner, I took a year off work in 1998 to travel and never went back to full time work again, after 25 fun filled years on the Coast I packed up and moved to Thailand.
What is the purpose of this blog? Well I really want to use it to record my travel experiences & to display my photographs, give and receive travel tips, comment on places I visit, restaurants I eat in and use it to replace the autobiography I intended to write, apart from all that it helps me fill in my day. :)
I moved to Thailand mainly because I wanted to keep travelling while my health allowed me to, there are huge advantages being closer to all the places I want to visit.
Cost of living in Thailand is around 35% of the cost in Australia, plus flights are 50% cheaper because you are much closer to everywhere. ????
Consequently I am able to travel to many more places compared to living in Australia.
Having said all that, it is & has always been my intention to return to Australia when my travelling is finished, I predict this will happen around 2021.
