    Whats the first thing you do?

    What is the first thing you do when you arrive to the LOS? I know landing in LOS there are so many things running through your head, Beer, Party, Swim, Shower, Shopping, Massage, Boom Boom and even sleep (sometimes). Lets just say you have landed collected your bags and checked in at your hotel, what do you do now?

    On previous trips straight to a bar for a Beer and collect the ambience of been back in LOS (Phuket) in past cases.

    I have traditionally Jumped in the pool for a swim as the first thing I do. It did change last trip and sure it will be similar for the next trip

    Do you use the free True Move ones from HKT? I have never had trouble with them. I will see how I go in Udon Thani though

    The first thing I do is re-acquaint my wife with her Mother and respectfully let them catch up on the
    news together for a couple of weeks, I mean hours.
    I will then stroll off lonely around the streets of Bangkok. It's a sacrifice one occasionally has to make I suppose.

    Hi there distant peak.

    She has been living here for the most part of each year for 24 years.
    I say the most part of each year as we do try to stay in Thailand throughout January and February of each year
    as its bleeding freezing then in the UK. Generally get back to her home town for a while in Nakhon Sawan and then on
    to friend visits in Bangkok, Hua Hin and Chiang Mai. Splitting the time up between those places mainly.

    Sounds like the perfect combination! Though Nov and Dec was the worst of the weather this year.... so I hear as I was in Thailand from Oct to Dec so luckily missed it! You must be the most "married" Thai-Farang couple I have known about... 24 years!!!! I am sure you will provide good advice, opinions and thoughts for us all... most of us here are but infants in comparison...

    Oh, just one thing... I support Liverpool... 555

    Oh brilliant comments.... Whats your secret gig?? ... Love it
    Thanks G 4orce, Wabbits and Distant Peak.

    I have actually left Fergie trailing as he joined United 3 months after I got married, but I must admit
    the similarities end there as he's earned far more money than me, got knighted and won more.

    There is actually a bloke a couple of miles down the road from me who has two years on me,
    him and his Thai wife have been married 26 years.

    The glue has been nothing to do with Fergie, but more to do with sharp knives and the pet ducks I keep.
    Distant Peak, You got the timing right to be in Thailand during that spell and I ended up being here in the UK for the worst of the weather.

    I am looking at ways to extend the time in Thailand each year and get rid of all those winter months, this is currently
    work in progress. What are the secrets to any marriage let alone Thai/Western? You are correct though a lot of Thai / Western marriages
    I have known have quickly fallen by the wayside.

    I think the main reason we have survived is to give each other space, we see each other once a year. No seriously my wife is still very Thai in that she is very group-oriented and likes to watch the television be with her Thai friends sometimes for a good old chin wag and have a bite to eat. I am more individualistic (loner) and prefer reading, writing, learning and shouting at bad referees.

    Tip number one. Keep out of each others faces.
    Off to get some work done ladies and gentlemen.

    Interesting thoughts there. We have already talked about having separate beds/rooms if we ever got long term serious. I love my space and so does she. It's all about meeting a partner that shares the same idiosyncrasies... a clingy woman with a guy who likes space (or vice versa) will never work... but get all the stars aligned correctly and you have a chance!
