This is a question for those of you who are lucky enough to spend long periods in Thailand. Next year it looks likely my husband's job will finish and with a month in Thailand/Asia already booked for May '16 we are in a position to return for a month or more in July/August...pretty much skipping winter. We would likely base ourselves in one place and take advantage of great value low season rates and just live the dream, as we want to retire to Thailand one day.
Of course it sounds idyllic and one could never be bored in paradise...right? We are not very adventurous and not party people either. Obviously working or volunteering are out but I don't want to turn into a lazy sod either. Is is unrealistic to think that a local family might welcome a farang offering free english lessons? Perhaps for some cooking tips in return? How do you fill your time if you stay for extended periods? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
