A while back I wrote an article about living in Thailand and I kept adding to it. Eventually it reached many pages and I turned it into an ebook book that we put into PDF, Kindle, Sony, Kobo, Nook, ePub formats.
The book, “Living in Thailand” is about making the transition from life in the USA to life in Thailand – a radical change of day to day living.
Living in a foreign country is just like living on another planet. There are things you will like and things you won’t like. There are people you’ll meet that you’ll like, and those you won’t like. There are customs and traditions in Thailand that I like, and some I don’t like. Living in a new country brings with it a lot of trials and confronts you with new experiences constantly. There are expats that can make a successful transition to living in the Land of Smiles, and those that can’t – and leave within a year or two.
I’ve been in Thailand for nearly seven years now. I remember when I first arrived and talking to Jon – an American friend I met in Ubon. He was still loving it. He had a good perspective on living life in southeast Asia – and I hoped that I could have a similar perspective once I had been here that long. Now that I have, I think Jon’s outlook on continuing to live in the country, the people, is a bit better than mine. Not to say mine is bad, just that Jon had a great outlook. Mine is only good.
The book is mostly about my experience with a girl that I fell in love with – but was afraid to commit to because I had heard such horrible things about Thai girls. I was afraid to be a sucker and fall in love and get my heart ripped out through my nose.
Maybe you’re going through a similar situation. Maybe you don’t know for sure if the girl you are falling for is the “right one”. Is she trustworthy? Can you live with her forever?
I have stayed with my girl now for over 5 years. We’re very happy and, though some days we face differences that seem insurmountable, we always get through them. After 3 failed marriages in the USA – that’s saying something. Thais seem more willing to work out differences than are Americans – at least in my experience.
If you’re looking for a good read, “Living in Thailand” provides that I think, and for just $2.99 (PDF) you can’t go wrong.
