During our travels in Asia a pot of Tiger Balm was always in our wash bag. It served many functions, easing the discomfort of insect bites, soothing sore joints, and rubbing on our temples to cure headaches. Tiger Balm is a miracle in a pot.
A week or so ago we decided we could not live without Tiger Balm here in England, so I went on Amazon U.K. and ordered a pot. It took quite a while to arrive because it was dispatched from Thailand.
The arrival of the Tiger Balm brought back many fond memories of travelling in Thailand. Memories much needed now that we are living in the North East of England, which is nowhere near as lovely as Thailand.
A mere sniff of the Tiger Balm conjured up images of Buddhist Temples bathed in bright sunlight. Spicy food and cold beer enjoyed while watching the vivid and hectic street life.
Oh how I wish we were in Thailand now, it’s definitely one of our favourite Asian countries. I guess we’ll have to make do with inhaling the Tiger Balm and scrolling through our photos of Thailand – for now…….
