New digs

Sawasdee Khrap

Moving into our new digs, or actually a condo (11th floor – 1brm, 2 bath, lg kitchen, living room, 2 balcony’s)  – renting for now just to see how we like it.  I am using “WE” as Tasanai and I have reconciled our differences.  Thanks God that’s over.  But between senility, trying to get the web thing going, travel and culture differences I swear I work harder now in retirement than I did before.

We should be moving in next week, but I won’t consider it accomplished till we actually do – you know how things can rapidly change – I’ll wait till we are in to give the address out – but, it will really be nice to have a separate bedroom to escape to either of our entertaining goes on late.  In addition there are several great advantages:

  • 1.  There are empty studios still in the complex that can be used by visiting guests for about 800 Baht or so – that’s $20 a night – complete privacy and spectacular views.
  • 2.  On the 15th floor is a private pool , actually for the penthouse area but we will be included – very seldom used,  so it is almost like having our own.

Cable TV and ADSL for the internet.  Right now we have very limited TV, everything in Thai – so I don’t understand anything – except BBC World and that gets very boring ,very fast.   Getting off the dial-up for the internet will be heaven, right now it takes forever to do anything on the web and forget trying to down-load any files —— for that alone I really look forward to the new place.

Well I have to buy another TV (we gotta have a home entertainment center) , dishes, bathroom and housewares so I don’t plan on taking any trips in the near future, but I have a lot of pictures and tales from our excursions so far this year to tide me over.  I’ll try to show you some of the “Unseen” places we’ve seen so far – I am sure your will like them.

And If I am peaking your interest about coming to Thailand, we are adding a new section – “Bird’s Tours”  to the products we offer — he has some great tour packages in addition to specially designed private tours – please check them out.  They should be listed in about a week.

Gotta ge ready to move
