The Things that stop me returning back to the UK


The Things that stop me returning back to the UK

I am pretty open about sharing my position on living here in Thailand. I like it and always have, but would I be open for a move back to the UK? Absolutely. However, there are a few things that grate with me about this as an option.

I have a young family and so my carefree spirit is somewhat curtailed by my responsibility as a parent, now I am fighting this as hard as I can by looking to make as much money as possible. If I have wild riches then I am not at the mercy of this world and its rules and can play on my terms.

Over the last 12 months in addition to making my media operation more focused and efficient to improve profitability, I have also been investing a shed load of money into a new online project. It has been a painful punt financially but there is now light at the end of the tunnel. I have high hopes for this project as not only a Thailand operation but International too. By February next year, I will be able to share the full details with anyone interested.

I know life does not have to be lived via the beaten path that my peers back in the UK live too and if I do return back to the UK my plan, at least, would that it is on my terms. I am not trying to be grandeur in the slightest, I just want to be consciously in control of how I go about living my life.

What I dislike about the idea of living in the UK

I was sitting in the sauna the other evening, as you do such is the lifestyle here in Thailand, talking with a group from the UK about health care. They complained that not only is there a waiting list to see a dentist but finding dentistry to even register one’s self is now a problem. My wife, who is Russian, listened in and was shocked. The UK lauds itself as a developed nation and above nationalities like Russia. I have been to Russia and actually had a toothache, at the time we were in deepest darkest Siberia. No problem she said and she booked me an appointment for the next day. I was worried about what to expect, to be honest. However, it was state of the art and they fixed my tooth for next to nothing in cost.

Shame on the UK.
