What’s past is past…
What the future Holds…
is yet to be discovered
For those who have been following my musings
over the past few years…you will be all too
familiar (up to a point) about my comings and
goings. If you’re new to my Blog then…I need
to back up a bit so that you might better
understand…where I’m coming from and what
I hope will be forthcoming.
I started my Expat life and journey back in
December 2005. This was when I took my first
trip to Thailand. From the first moment I set
foot on Thai soil…I new this place…steeped in
its mystical ways…would have deep seated
meaning(s) for me.
Once I arrived in Chiang Mai…I experienced a
major epiphany and knew instantly…that this
city…would be my new home. This all proved
true as within a little over a year…I was a newly
rooted resident of Chiang Mai.
I’m not going to delve into my past living
experiences in Chiang Mai… as that would be
redundant. I will say however that…I lived in
Chiang Mai for almost three (3) years. But…
as life usually has unexpected surprises in
store for all (or many) of us…and without
rehashing what does not need to be re-
visited…I will tell you that my tenure in
Thailand became somewhat…”abbreviated”.
After my departure from Thailand…as many of
you know…I chose to take up residence in
My past musings in Cuenca... can be found in
their entirety by clicking on the this link…
I now present to you…
the next upcoming chapter of my life!
With the previous paragraph(s)
out of the way…I now welcome you…
to my newest adventure in living and into…
My "Re-Expatriated" Life...in and around
"The Rose of the North"
Chiang Mai, Thailand
Of course this will proceed hand-in-hand with
whomever…whatever… and wherever…my
continuing expat life leads me next.
So for now…a “Pre-Welcome” into my future
I sincerely hope…you enjoy the ride with me
as your guide. That said…maybe…my writings
will awaken a “travelers quest” in you and just
maybe…you’ll visit both me and Chiang Mai
for yourself…in the not to distant future.
until my actual “new” Blog launch…
Sawadee Krup...which means Hello/Good-bye…
(“Krup” for a male…”Ka” for a female)
"See you already learned some Thai"
FYI…my new “upcoming” Blog address is:
Have a great day (มีวันที่ดี in Thai)
A Special Note…
To my Cuencano Amigo’s
North American Friends.
I have lived amongst you for about 15 (fifteen)
months and…have made many friends and
acquaintances. Some have developed into real
honest-to-goodness “highly-valued” friendships.
For those (you know who you are) friends…
I sincerely hope that distance will not interfere
with our relationships.
For those whom I consider “acquaintances”…
I truly hope that we can stay in-touch as…
I value whatever level of friendship has
developed with each and every one of you.
Thankfully…technology makes contact quite
easy…utilizing e-mails… FaceBook…SKYPE etc.
and I hope [at least] some will take advantage
So my friends…
I wish you happiness and well-being.
