So, Anyway, Where Was I?
So, anyway, where was I? Are you asking yourself that? I think I was writing a blog about my life in Thailand.
Yes, that’s right, it’s all coming back to me now…I was writing regular posts about my life here in Bangkok. Look, see… https://pauldancewriter.com/my-thailand-blog/
And then something happened…something I didn’t see coming but which has taken over my time. Well, it is actually two things that have happened. Firstly, I have been learning new ‘skills’. Skills that will make me some money. I’ll mention more about my these new ‘skills’ in future blogs and whether they’re paying off. If they come off, this blog will become a wonderful story of one man and his growing confidence in his intelligence and determination. If it doesn’t come off, this blog will be a depressing story of one man’s descent into a life of alcohol abuse and throwing cats at walls. I’ll be honest, the later story sounds more exciting but I’m kind of thinking it’ll be the first story.
It’s such a shame that money is required to live, isn’t it? You’d have thought by now that humanity would have worked out a way for us all to live without needing to make some.
I shake my fist at humanity for not sorting that out yet!
Secondly, I have been writing a lot…just not blog posts. All will become more clear soon, but I have been working on two books. As I say, all will become clearer soon when I start pestering people to download them as an ebook and to then leave glowing reviews afterwards (that’s not a hint, it’s a plea…a plea is not quite the same as begging…but I will resort to begging at some stage, so buckle up)
Wow! Tell Us More!
Ok, you asked for it.
So before I continue, I should give you a brief outline of the past two months (yes, shocking – two months!) Shortly after my last blog I had to leave Thailand as my visa had expired. Thai law requires me to leave the country every so often and take a short holiday somewhere. It’s a tough situation but one that I take with dignity and a certain kind of heroic stoicism.
So as you can maybe guess from the heading just above this sentence, Malinee and I went to Bali. It’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go and it disn’t disappoint. I will write a more detailed post about our time there but here is a brief outline…
Saw a monkey…
Went up a really big mountain and met two women who ignored me the whole time we were there.
Watched people taking a shower.
Looked at a place where the locals grow rice.
Went snorkelling like a James Bond bad ass MF!
Saw another monkey who lived near the beach.
I shall write more about the trip to Bali at a later date as it was a truly lovely place and we both loved it!
Goooooood Day To You Vietnam!
29 days after arriving back from Bali I had to leave the country again so get a little stamp on my passport (and to not get a massive fine and a possible trip to the immigration prison. This time, as you can possible guess from the heading above, we went to Vietnam. Da Nang to be precise which is a major city on the south eastern coast.
There will no follow a brief description of our weekend.
We went on a plane…
Then we saw a road bridge that was in the shape of a dragon and breathed fire every night at 9pm…
I didn’t take as many photographs while in Vietnam due mainly to the fact we were only there for 48 hours but also because I didn’t see any monkeys. I will write more of my insightful musings of Vietnam in a later blog but if you cannot wait for more information about Dragon Bridge here is the wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_Bridge_(Da_Nang)
So there you have it, the short answer to where I’ve been is, ‘busy’. But I am back now and thank you to The Travel Architect for checking that I was ok and not throwing cats at a wall. I’m not…not yet anyway.
P.S. I’ve been living on the edge recently and in accordance with that lifestyle I haven’v checked any of the spelling or punctuation on this blog. I am such a bad as and I will not apologise.
