    Thailand is brilliant!!!

    Loads of cute available little brunettes, great cheap food, great cheap everything, lots of lovely sunshine, no Winter!!!

    Sorry about that, i just wanted to relive my newbie novelty. Next I'm gonna relive me first day at "big school".

    Thailand is ok, but if I was rich I wouldn't bother living here, July August would be UK time, then slowly drift across europe keeping up with the sun, than hit Florida for the winter, yep I could keep that up for a few years without getting bored

    I dont know what to make of you smeg. You spend years lambasting the Kingdom and the Tefl industry yet you are here and seem to be happy enough. Maybe your focus is out of whack mate.
    It is one thing to not be happy with your lot in life and quite another to be chasing rainbows.
    I been back in Thailand for just 7 weeks and I aint had a bad day yet.
    That dont mean that it aint gonna happen but from my perspective I would rather be here than the UK or Australia.
    Yep, I think Thailand is brilliant.

    Thailand's great for those who've already been through ups and downs of life, unlike Smeg I'm afraid.

    Sorry Smegster but its true. I used to think given a chance you'd prove that you're a sound chap but unfortunately you ain't. This board has given you enough time to show your bright side but I think you ain't got one.

    Get a life mate.

    I think that's spot on macha.
    I never planned to come here.
    If everything had gone to plan I'd still be a solicitor with a house and a first wife, who's now very fat and plain and a daughter, who I still have but don't live with (but hope I will one day). And I'd still be living a life I wasn't happy with.
    Life didn't go to plan, it went kawoomf, I lived in turkey, then Germany and only came here cos a friend from Turkey was in bangkok.
    I came expecting not a lot.
    I have loved most every day since.
    I arrived more than 5 years ago.

    Yes TH just "happens" ... had heard of the LoS, and never liked much of what I heard, but once here, there was no going back!
    btw CMN Effendi, I also lived in Ankara for nearly two years, loved it and got to visit most of Turkey from the Bosphorus to far off places like Ürgüp etc... fascinating place and people! ..

    3 years in Istanbul for me.
    Living in Fenerbahce on the Asian side of the bosphorus and working on the European side in Taksim square.
    Cross continental commuting is a bloody thing.
    Hard work but memorable and i miss lots of stuff about it.
    Happier here mind you.

    11 years in Tokyo for me before my move here - and although I treasure the time I spent in Tokyo, the pace of life, and the standard of living here is better. I also appreciate the way Thais look at life - having a laugh is a must do in society..
    I am in a unique situation of working in Thailand, but not dealing with Thais at all during my work day (except for a few motorsai guys), as I work among the huge japanese expat community here in bangers (100,000). I feel lucky to be able to do this as it keeps my japanese language skills from going rusty, and allows me enjoy thailand from a different perspective than otter farangs....
    I have never had a problem ANY Thai person in the 2 years I have lived here .... yup, everthing is just dandy on this end

    evet, Istambul was a dream, drove up from Ankara, stayed @ Taksim sq. and covered what one can in a week of such an historically rich environment from Dolmabace to Aya Sofia, Topkape etc. Istambul had no bridge over to EU side at the time, ferry only!

    The andvantage of living in Ankara was that it's "central" and and nearish to most archeo digs and most sites are but a short drive away like Pamukale, Gordium, Izmir, Kushadasi and many more..

    Glad to hear you are well, matey, and good luck with your 'new shit' - I also have some myself .....this year is looking good

    re: kinko nihongo crowd - having fun with some old friends lately. Not nipponese themselves mind you, but dear friends who have spent decades there, and now spend long vacations here...

    Sunshine, Good friends, a job I enjoy, aswell as prospects on the horizon, and my beloved swimming pool! What more could a man want!
