I just booked flights to Chiang Mai for mid January to mid February for my husband, Jack, and myself, Trudy. We are retirees who are checking out the possibility of moving to Chiang Mai. He is from Seattle originally and I am from Florida. We both have the wanderlust left in us and love meeting new people. I worked professionally as a life coach and career counselor in recent years, and Jack has done everything under the sun, usually working with people, including in hospitals, and in Indian Country in Alaska and Arizona. We have both been involved in recovery programs for many years and we would like to meet some people with similar experiences, as well as people who are interested in personal and spiritual growth, in general. We could use suggestions of places out beyond the main city to check out for future living ( perhaps a rental house as we have a dog and two cats) and ways to connect with some of you when we get there after January 11. Thanks!
