I moved to the USA before my 22nd birthday and at one point I’ll write an article about how exactly I did that with virtually no money no degree and no job but you see I don’t think I’d like to tell anyone how to move to the USA because it’s a country I’ll never live in Again I’d rather write an article on how to live in Thailand.
So besides the fact that I’d probably fly into the states and the IRS would be on my ass for not filing my last few tax returns the real reason I choose not to live in the country again is because it’s there is no real challenge.
Granted I lived in Newport Beach Orange County which is in Southern California less than an hour away from LA (if there is no traffic 2-3 if there is!). Where I worked was in Irvine one of THE safest places to live in America, super clean and right near the beach. Good job nice car blah blah blah and with the best weather in the world why wouldn’t I want to live there?
Simply put America is too good. I guess this is a compliment to the USA because really it is a great place to live and there is so much to do, so much so that I get bored easily in Thailand because there isn’t really as many things to do that I enjoy, I can’t go surfing, climb to 15000 feet, camp on the beach and eat smores, go skiing in the winter or go to the club where all my best mates are at, drive 4 hours to Vegas or gunshot to Tijuana for some debauchery.
I am willing to give up all the awesome things I can do in So Cal just to live one more day in Thailand because it’s real. Thailand is so real and dog eat dog that only the smart ones are able to survive it in the long term. I want something challenging and things were so easy for me in America that it just gave me no more challenge.
I love the nitty gritty of Thailand and how chaotic it is, I love how it’s not perfect and as much I may complain about things it’s the things I don’t complain about that makes it such a wonderful country to live in. They say that Thailand is still in the developing world yet it’s not developing much except for more concrete buildings. There are no developments going on to improve the system, politics, crime and corruption. It’s still Anarchy over in Thailand and that’s what I love about it.
When you live in a perfect world where the sidewalks are perfect, the grass is always green, and Mexicans doing everything for you you’re no longer living. Your just going through the motions day in and day out. While there are awesome things to do in So Cal finding the time to do them everyday is impossible, whereas in Thailand I can have fun every single day of my life here. I’m not going to die saying I wished I fucked more or wished I had spent my best years buzzing around Thailand enjoying myself and having more fun than I’ll ever have in the USA.
I’ve already explained why Thai girls are better than western girls so on a relationship level which everyone wants whether it be fleeting or lasting you can find someone who is perfect for you in Thailand, no matter what her age! Finding something similar in California even with a population of 30+million you’ll search for years without finding her and you probably will be some girl off the farm in Isaan will still have a better body!
In Thailand I can have a few slender sexy fun girls as girlfriends and access to thousands more, I can eat well but spend next to nothing on food, I can live out of a suitcase and don’t have to carry my world around with me. Life is simple, life is easy, and life is so much more fun in Thailand.
