You will find many expats writing blogs about life in the coastal centres and places like Chiang Mai. For the many westerners with a connection via their Thai partner to Isan, a large region in the northeast, this is not very helpful. There are some excellent resources that focus on Isan life in the bigger urban centres, but almost none that describe life outside the cities. I give you a unique glimpse into what village living for an expat actually looks like day to day.
None of my stories are spectacular and will never be found in the search results of tourists looking for adventure.However, most of the readers who follow this blog, and there are some who have become ‘virtual’ friends over the years, are people who have a much more committed and personal connection to Thailand and have moved well beyond elephant riding, zip-lining and bar hopping. If you are one of those, you have come to the right place.
These little stories will give you a connection to village life and broaden your understanding of what a life in rural Thailand might look like if that ever happens for you. Even if you are not planning on moving here, this blog will give you an insider’s view of Isan like no other. Dive in for an insider’s view of Thai life.
