  • Bored with Thailand

    Sometimes I get bored in Thai never never land. Where do you go in the region when you need a break?

    Boredom like happiness comes from within. Sure a change of scenery may provide a transient reduction but you have to address the primary cause.

    Hobbies?

      Wherever you go, there you are.

      It must be tedious being you, dripping your sanctimonious dribble wherever you go.


      Anyway regionally I like Penang for a little change of scenery and culture, great curries and real 7% Guinness (which isn't even available in Ireland any longer).

      Outside the region I quite enjoy travel in South America, Europe and the USA.
      I'm planning a journey through Europe and Russia this summer.

        Twice this year already, me and the Mrs have enjoyed mini-breaks in Prachuap kiri-khan and Krabi and Ao Nang........Great for recharging the batteries.

          I believe the term is drivel if you must.

          Sanctimonious suggests I was looking down on the poor fellow where if fact I was simply stating a fact. If money cannot buy happiness then maybe location cannot either.

            I do believe having ample money and living in a good location contribute to ones happiness but not essential.
            Some farangs may consider Bangkok the centre of their universe but I would not(I hate the place) and it wouldn't matter how much money I had. It would be at the very bottom of my list of places to live in Thailand.

            The OP asks the question ''where do you go in the region when you get bored and need a break'' and not for a philosophical break-down of why people get bored etc. etc.

            Dr Earl perhaps was mistaken in using the word ''Sanctimonious'' and maybe the word Condescending would have been more appropriate.

              I have been to Singapore. Laos, Cambo, Japan, Hong Kong. I just am starting to think that every city in Thailand looks exactly alike. Lots of electric lines, street vendors, traffic and plastic bags and trash all about.

                Paul Kelly - 'Every ****ing City'

                Paul Kelly - 'Every ****ing City' - Live - 3.3.12 - Club Cafe - Pittsburgh
                youtube.com

                Lyrics :

                We argued on the channel train to Paris
                The vin rouge helped us make it sweet again
                But by the time that we got down to Lyon
                Everything I said was wrong and you cursed me in the rain
                We split up for a while in Barcelona
                We met up six days later in Madrid
                I was hoping that the break would make things go a little better for us
                And for a little while it almost did
                Now I'm in a bar in Copenhagen
                And i'm trying hard to forget your name
                And I'm staring at the label on a bottle of cerveza
                And every ****ing city feels the same
                You said to call you when I got to London
                A French girl told me that you'd left a note
                I said to her "I like your accent" and she thought I sounded funny
                So we ended up drinking in Soho
                Foolishly I followed you to Dublin
                Like a ghost I walked the streets of Temple Bar
                And all the bright young things were throwing up their Guinness in the gutters
                And once I thought I saw you from afar
                Now I'm in a nightclub in Helsinki
                And they're playing La Vida Loca once again
                And I can't believe I'm dancing to this crap but I'm a chance here
                And every ****ing city sounds the same
                At a cafe in the port of Amsterdam
                An E-mail from you said you'd gone to Rome
                For a minute I thought maybe but my funds were running low
                And anyway it sounded like you weren't alone
                So I headed north until I got to Hamburg
                A chilly city suits a troubled soul
                And on the Reeperbahn I paid a woman far too much
                To kick me out before I'd even reached my goal
                Now I'm in a restaurant in Stockholm
                And the waiter here wants me to know his name
                And I can order sandwiches in seven different languages
                But every ****ing city looks the same
                Arriverderci, au revoir, aufwiedersen, hasta la vista baby
                Yeah, every ****ing city's just the same

                  Sure I be knowing the word "drivel", but since your post is so akin to our favorite TD pal Peewee dribble Robertson, well, enough said, welcome to the forum Peewee.
                  BTW I just booked a flight to Amsterdam. Not because of boredom but because I like to see new places from a variety of perspectives, I'll be touring on a bicycle and hoping trains around Europe and Russia this trip

                          I consider moving from Thailand almost every day.

                          The more I understand it, the less I like it. And I think I understand it fairly well.
                          Personally, everything changed when my daughter was born.
                          I came here as a 42-year-old retiree with my Thai wife of 5 years. It was good then, that was 9 years ago. It's tiresome now. I don't have a single Thai person I would consider a friend, aside from my wife.

                          I come from a good background. Cheating, thieving, and cutting corners and the simple thrill of "getting over on somebody" doesn't appeal to me.

                          Integrity, pride in one's work, honesty and compassion are important to me.

                          Oil and water? Indeed.

                          Yes, I've created a bubble, as most farangs have -- for the same reason. I can read and write Thai at a basic level. I can communicate with relative ease. I just don't like their style -- even the nice ones. I don't live in Bangkok and the lifestyle and attitudes of hayseed morons is starting to rankle me bigtime. Maybe I'm getting old.

                          Having said that, I don't like the western style much either. Nanny-state nickel and dime society, reaching into your pocket a dozen times a day to pay some horseshit penalty for living in "something marginally better than Thailand." Pay for parking, pay for incoming calls, pay 20x for garbage, pay 100x for childcare. The consumer society enslaves you. Live too close to the stadium and you pay for the millionaire primadonnas to entertain others. Fuks that.

                          I don't think of myself as being "from" anywhere, so I don't much care where I end up. It's a hard call. I will reevaluate this year. The Thai experience has run its course. My wife wanted to move back to the States 5 years ago.
