Q1. Where did you move to and when?
Back to England a few years ago
Q2. How long did you work in Thailand?
I worked there for 2 years, on the outskirts of Pattaya
Q3. What was your main reason for moving?
Money money money - not being paid on time, running low on savings. I could not carry on with the life style I had become accustomed to. Changing immigration rules also meant a lack of stability.
Q4. What are the advantages of working where you are now compared to Thailand?
Back in the UK, I have an excellent salary which is paid on time. There are no daft immigration rules and I bought a house in MY name!!!! No rabies from biting dogs either.
Q5. What do you miss about life in Thailand?
The weather, the good food and the good night life. I also miss the smiling people and the laid back way of life.
Q6. Would you advise a new teacher to seek work in Thailand or where you are now?
Yes but dont get hooked on the drug, do your time and get out.
Q7. Any plans to return to Thailand one day?
Having a Thai wife, we go back twice a year for holidays, if a stable, well paying job come along I would certainly consider it.
Q8. Anything else you'd like to add?
Thailand is a wonderful country to explore, but keep your head down and stay out of trouble. Make sure you have enough cash to live the life you want there or else it's like being in Disneyland and not being able to afford the rides.
