I’ve been visiting Thailand since 2004 when I was 24 years old.
I first came to Thailand for Songkran with a group of friends. I’d always wanted to visit Thailand and I had the travel bug from travelling around America. So when the opportunity came up, I went!
I’ve since been coming to Thailand 2-3 times a year, every year from 2004… So a few times now.
At first, I didn’t like Bangkok all that much and favored the relaxing atmosphere of Northern Thailand. I now love the place and happy to spend time in the hustle and bustle of the city.
It might be an age thing, I’m not sure… But as time has passed I now find myself spending my time in the south being on the beaches and relaxing by the sea.
I’ve started this site for a number of reasons, mainly a way to share some of my experiences as friends and family are always asking questions about a number of topics. It’s 2019 and I’ve always thought about doing a blog and I’ve had a number of domain name’s and ideas and have now settled on thatkarlsmith.com and thought I’d put it to some use!
I’m also looking to move to Thailand, I’m in the early stages and will document my progress.
I love to help and answer any questions that people have when talking about Thailand, so if there is anything you’d like to see here please feel free to get in contact with me.
