ARE YOU THINKING OF MOVING TO LIVE ABROAD IN THAILAND?
This is my first blog post about our relocation but I’m more than happy to answer any questions you might have. Prior to our relocation, there was lots of information that I had read online that I learned was different upon moving here. If you are visiting during rainy season read this article about what to expect. We were always entertained in Thailand on our wonderful yard by playing games. We found some classics and made up some new ones inspired from this outdoor games list to take advantage of the wonderful Thailand weather outdoors.
