I moved to my current country because: after Hurricane Irma in 2017, my home island was destroyed at 95% and I lost everything. I decided to move to Thailand because I had been there in the 2015. I had also been in a long distance relationship with my now wife. So after rebuilding and repair what I could on the island, I decided to leave and live my best life in Thailand.
My favorite experience living here has been…being able to connect with so many good people from all walks of life.
The three things you need to make it here is: Good work ethic, respect everyone you interact with and bring something new to the table. You need to be an expert in your field.
If you’re considering living here, you need to leave this at home: If you are gonna live in country where don’t know anyone make sure you leave your negativity behind because it will be hard. A win or a loss only exists based on how you react to the situation. So I believe remain positive despite any setbacks or challenges.
