Q1. Where did you move to and when?
Back to a place that isn't full of people who don't want you there. I moved back to the UK 2 years ago.
Q2. How long did you work in Thailand?
Q3. What was your main reason for moving?
I got sick of Thais and Thai politics and the whole loss of face thing. I also got tired of many of the expats I came into contact with. My work was great though and I got paid over 60,000 baht a month, which was a decent wage.
Q4. What are the advantages of working where you are now compared to Thailand?
Decent food, real friends, a nice place to live, articulate and intelligent conversation, women who actually care about your personality more than your wallet, no coups and airport closures, the list goes on and on.
Q5. What do you miss about life in Thailand?
My work and my students
Q6. Would you advise a new teacher to seek work in Thailand or where you are now?
Work in the west and take holidays in Thailand.
Q7. Any plans to return to Thailand one day?
Q8. Anything else you'd like to add?
Be careful in Thailand, life is cheap there!
