    Hi Guys & Gals

    Hi
    As a newbie to the Board I'd like to introduce myself.
    I first visited Phuket in 2005, just after the Tsunami, returned frequently and finally decided in 2008 to save airfares and become an early LOS retiree on Phuket.
    I have now been with my TG partner for three years and Buddha willing intend to stay here.

    Hi Zablive, Welcome to the Board.

    What part of Phuket island is home and where are you from originally?

    Hi Minder
    Born in East St.Kilda - called Elwood by the toffs - but lived in Canada for quite a while.
    As I am awaiting my divorce (that's the Canadian about-to-be-ex on the left in my avatar) Phuket Island is specific enough.

    Great to have you on the board, Zab, and will look forward to more of your posts. If I can ask, what part of Canada did you reside in when you were here?

    No worries mate, born in N/E Victoria, worked in Melbourne (including Toorak and South Yarra which are called Toorak and South Yarra by the toffs 555)

    Read a couple more of my (our?) posts here and you will see some reference to divorces or the Family Court - so I understand keeping the location general ...

    I fled here to the West from Melbourne a decade ago - it was stop in Perth or start swimming ...

    Remember that no matter what the divorce takes from you - you now have your freedom from her - and you will come to see that was worth the price ...


    Enjoy.

    WTTB Jablive.
    I, like the rest will be very interested to read your thoughts and experiences.

    I have also gone thru 2 divorces, so know how it goes. Good luck with it, at least when its done you can have some peace.
    At least your in a good place with a good woman now, so all's well that ends well.

    WTTB Zablive, not too many expats here so it is good to have another as they have a lot of info some of us Frequent travellers dont have.

    Make yourself at home. Few more Melbournians joining lately

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Canada - mostly Toronto and Burlington (on the way to Niagara Falls).

    My partner was born in Chumphae but raised in Prachinburi - due east of BKK and near Aranyapathet/Pot Poi border crossing.

    I left Melbourne on the first boat out after finishing Uni.

    ^^^I had a dream about Burlington when I was a 19 yr old at university. I was in a car driving down a hill towards a lake or water.... and I saw a sign saying Burlington... I knew I was in North America somewhere... had to check if there was a lake near Burlington in Nth America somewhere... and there was... 555

    Been to Toronto and all over Ontario, including Hamilton (for a SETI Conference) a number of times... but never been to Burlington to check out my dream... 555
