If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the last 14 years of visiting and living in Thailand, it is that family comes first and is deeply ingrained in Thai Culture. There is a sense of belonging now that I’m in my senior years, as this is something that I feel was never going to happen if I lived back in Australia. We might have a language barrier, but I feel we talk more about life and activity more than when I was back there. It is still early days in the long trek to ascension, but I do feel the years ahead will be far more enjoyable.

It was 14 years ago I first met Chanya, and although the first 7 were a challenge with the commuting, it all worked out in the end.
It's 2023, and time to get back into the swing of things. It's been a busy 2 weeks over Christmas.
Christmas is over, and only a few days until New Year. It's a beautiful day to have a riverside lunch.
