Thanks Patrick. I'm interested in moving to Chiang Mai and planning to scout the place soon.

Would appreciate any assistance!

I am a young French-Canadian graduate from New-England Conservatory in Boston for violin performance. I want to travel to Bangkok in July and I am looking for teaching experience or any event where I could do a musical presentation, talk about music, my experience, play pieces and songs, and ultimately provide a cultural experience. I can also give violin lessons and teach french or english. Please let me know if you are interested in learning more about my resume and videos Hope to hear back from you soon

Bonjour Etienne, bon chance!
I'll be in Chiang Mai next year, maybe we can meet at that time.

Hi, my name is ann.. Im local bangkokian ...nice to meet you :)

Hi , Tolga from Turkey. 17 years experienced International Sales & Marketing manager. I m currently seeking a job in Thailand.

Hi, I am Rod

After 44 years of working I have decided to live full time in my apartment in Nana and start to wind down a little bit. I do the odd days work that buys a beer or two, but other than that I want to start a new episode in my life. I have been coming to Thailand for 10 years but always for work, so now I want to explore the real Thailand and find out the stuff that doesn't normally fall part of a Tourist's itinerary.

I am married to an Indonesian lady but I only see her about one week a month for various reasons, therefore I have a lot of time when I am alone. I would love to meet new people and make friends.

I have lived in Asia for 25 years although I am English by birth. I am lucky enough to have homes in Hong Kong, Singapore, France and Indonesia as well as here in Bangkok. I love cooking, golf, hiking and drinking good wine (and gin). I do not speak Thai but my English is rather good I hope!!

My career was in Financial Services - banking, insurance and consultancy.

I am a young 61 year old. I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro 5 years ago, but weigh a tad more now and am not quite as agile!!

I hope that if there are like minded people out there we can get to know each other.



Rod, we might have some things in common like Indonesia and Thailand. Drop me a line and let's see how we go on from there.

You are retired while I'm not as I'm enjoying my work still.


Rod, I would like to talk with you further send me a private E-Mail & I will send you mine.  Patrick

Sure that would be good: ***

Apologies for adding the link to my photography website and blog, neither of them have any commercial value, so it's not really advertising. They just provide more background information.

Howdy, Rod. Do you mean Nana in BKK?

Hello, I'm a retired Labor Relations Specialist in the transportation industry. I am considering moving out of the US and my heart is saying Thailand (preferably Chiang Mai). I will be visiting Chiang Mai in 2018 to get a better understanding of the culture, food, and the people. Asia has always intrigued me with it's mystical temples, ancient ruins and .
I enjoy traveling, gardening, dancing, photography, and cooking. I look forward to meeting new people, making friends, building life long relationships and possibly, my home  :heart: .
