Perhaps we could set up a time where anyone who has relocated to the tropics can share their experiences of Immigration/Visa, culture shock, weather/climate, wildlife, real estate, shopping, health care, infrastructure, diseases/vaccinations, etc etc...
I for one would like some first hand accounts of what it was like! Of course that depends on whether someone who has moved would be motivated to leave their home... :)
I would totally appreciate hearing this conversation .. particularly about Thailand. I'm not much interested in south of the border. Wonderful idea ... hope it happens!
I would definitely be interested in hearing more about rural Thailand at the fruit festival. Looking forward to meeting you all!
