The Money issue (you take care me I take care you)

I have been busy so please forgive my lack of posts :-)
I recently asked a question on this excellent siteThai sex-talk and Kaewmala has been kind enough to write a very good response, click the link to read it. This post is my reply, I'm still busy, got to move home, have a job interview, get ready to go to Thailand and go to work, all in the space of a week!

Anyway, here's the article;

The Thai Family, gender roles, perception and reality

In a thread on there was a discussion about Thai women and the question asked was 'Are Thai women incurious lovers?'

I think it was first asked on this (great) site or the blog that relates to it.

In the Thaivisa thread there was talk about family, gender roles and the perception of culture and how it can affect your relationship. I say 'the perception of culture' because culture is often only viewed from the outside.

My journeys to Thailand, how it all began...

Hi, and welcome to my blog.
This is a work in progress so please come back often and see what changes have been made.

I've started this blog to share with everyone my adventures in Thailand which began in May 2009 (or 2552 if you use the Buddhist calendar).

Now, I'm not someone who believes in 'fate' or 'magic' or anything like that but how I came to visit Thailand for the first time has some syncronicity about it if you will. The story may be a little long-winded but I think it's an important part of the tale so please, bear with me.

The first visit... Bangkok and Koh Samui

After being convinced that Thailand is a great place for two single blokes to go for a holiday (ok, didn't take that much convincing really!) the flights and hotels were booked through my mates travel company.

About me

Hi, thank you for visiting my blog. In these pages you will, I hope, enjoy some of my writings about my visits to Thailand. I want to share some of my experiences with you and hopefully you will begin to understand why this country has had such a profound effect on me in such a short time (around ten months at the time of writing).
