2020 for me was a good year as a retired Alien. I am 70years old  now been married 3 times totalling 47 years. My Wife now of 9 years is a Lanna lady. She spent 3 years in Australia with me.

Great to hear a positive story for once instead all of the Thai bashing. Feel the same you do, love living be here.

Just check the aqi daily.  The entire country, except for the very south, has extreme

air pollution. Is paradise really worth it?

Great question

Give me Thai femininity over Aussie feminism any day.

 


 

Correct. The first time I came here as a consultant, I was completely gobsmacked by the grace, beauty, femininity and attitude of Thai women. Sometimes still am.

I am aware that Thai men can regard us as poachers of their delights..take too much and

it may one day become illegal, if I were Thai, I'd soon put the kibosh on it, wouldn't you?

Enjoy while you can.

My Wife now of 9 years is a Lanna lady. She spent 3 years in Australia with me.

When I retired I wanted to come to Thailand, she would have been happy staying in Australia. She say I your wife I go with you anywhere and take care of you.

Now been here 6 years together here in San Kamphaeng area. The last 9years been best of my life.

No not a case of deep pockets.

We hear many negatives on this Forum but I have lots friends who have great wives. True I don't know what it cost them but they all lovely ladies who  respect and care for their husbands.

I lucky myself my wife is great and smart, We live now on my pension and hardly ever need touch savings.

We have our own house and she insisted I must be on title as 30 year lease.

Sure many guys here same as me.

Yes doesn't matter where we live there are things we don't like, Governments, stupid outdated laws ect.

We lucky to be here.

Being an Aussie we like to take Mickey out often, but that us.

I be happy to live out rest my life here and go out with big BBQ.

Hope no one kills a attendee for not wearing a mask. Lol.

😀🇹🇭

 

 

 

I’m an Aussie too and retired , on the aged pension.My understanding is the aged pension is severely reduced if you live outside of Australia for longer than 6 months. How do get around this?

Very happy in Thailand and have been for many years, far better than England which on the very rare visits I have made to see family, looks and feels like a foreign country to me now so I hope to remain here for the rest of my life, with my wife and children.

Great Post


I'm on the other side.
I've been living here for 19 years, mid-50s, teenage children. These last 19years have been the best in my life.


Now my family would like us all to move to Australia in the next few years for my children's university studies.
I don't want to leave Thailand, I've settled here, fully assimilated.


Australia....I reckon I'm not going to fit in, there's been a lot of changes, sadly not for the better.
Thailand has what I want, the government rules correctly (not perfectly) with people management, the food is great, wonderful climate and affordability.

Over the many years I've been working on a 28/28 day rotation (this has probably saved my liver) around the world, had to make many difficult decisions.

 

Difficult decision.......moving back to Oz.

You have savings and you're on the pension?!

Unless under the pension eligibility threshold, probably best not to mention your savings... never know who's on here 😉

The OP mentions he is 70.....
