Coronavirus has revolutionised work for thousands of people who have discovered they can work from home as effectively as the office.

 

But Rhodri Francis discovered he could work just as easily in Thailand.

 

He got stuck there when his family arrived mid-March to attend the Songkran Festival - one of the most important dates in the Buddhist calendar. "It doesn't make much difference," Mr Francis said.

 

He works for Cered, Ceredigion Council's Welsh language service, and was unable to return home to Llanilar, near Aberystwyth, because of lockdown.

I expect his trip dates coincide best with his job, holiday-wise.

Who is going to be the first to mention it?

At least it´s very good that they also got his face on the picture and his full name.

 

On the other hand, this is what to be expected in the times of a visa amnesty.

A big gap between the interview and eventual publishing;

Why is it good?

Are you suggesting that he is doing something illegal?

 

There is always one.....or two.

 

He clearly has a job in the U.K and paying taxes in the U.K. So definitely not taking a job from a local.

I think he probably passes as a "digital-nomad". It's possible to work online without problems, but, TIT!🙂
