After moving from New York in 2003, I lived in Lake Tahoe California for a little over a year. I wasn't working and was snowboarding every chance I could.
I visited Thailand for a month and after returning home for a few months I wanted to get back. So I packed my life and began a teaching career in Thailand.
It started in Chiang Mai, in the north, and now I am more south in Surat Thani. Closer to the beaches and a nicer school teaching IT Computer to high school kids.
Speaking Thai and enjoying the culture. It's the simple life out here, come and visit anytime.
