I find it hard to pick by country, so many beauties, so little time (and energy)

Even among the various countries, there are so many differences. Asian women have always held my first interest followed by Hispanic women.

Hua Hin vs Phuket (or others) activities wise

Hey all, Found threads comparing HH to Phuket, with most discussion based upon nightlife, and costs. My question is based on activities. We are looking at retirement to Thailand in a few years. My wife is from Cha Am area with family still there, and land she owns, so she favors Hua Hin/ Cha Am. But...

My Mom died from cancer, and I have had friends also go.

I don't want to be stuck in these group hospitals. I don't need anything fancy, but I'm there to get better, not worse.

I hate the idea of paying for insurance, but I know it's a necesary evil.

I seem to recall having pickled jellyfish before, but I think in Korea, not here. Also sea cucumber that is chopped up, cooked and mixed into a dish with sauce, vegies and other things. Consistency of a sea cucumber and a jellyfish are not that much different. We never get jellyfish on this side of...

I can't add to the collective wisdom here, I haven't spent enough time (yet) in HUa Hin area. But here in California I make a living as a CPA (chartered accountant on the other side of the pond). I work with many retirees, and soon to be retirees (myself in the later sooner than later I hope!). Just...

Dawn, Once you figure how to move money, from the states, let me know, I'll do what I can Migrant. I have found that the most effective and foolproof method of transferring medium amount of money (50 - 500 USD) is Western Union. You have to find a sending bank in the US, and there are many, and pay...
