Reason to Move to Thailand Number: 1,000,001
REASON: You can go on a vacation-vacation.
We live in Thailand on an island, eat cheap but amazing food, and we’re a short scooter ride to some of the best beaches anywhere… it’s odd to say this but we just packed to go on vacation for five days.
Having never been in this situation before, we don’t even know what to call it. Calling it a vacation seems odd. We do usually teach during the week so it seems legitimate to call this a vacation… but it also feels like we’re already on vacation.
It’s also odd because packing for a vacation from your vacation is tricky due to the fact that our apartment hardly has anything to pack. Our total possessions in Thailand fit neatly into one suitcase and one large backpack. By packing for this five day vacation, we’ve packed up a large portion of our apartment.
As odd as it may be, I believe we are going on something called a vacation-vacation. If you were ever considering moving abroad, here’s another good reason to do so!!
