Hello & thanks for visiting our website

The site offers personal musing of life’s yesterdays & today. Explore posts of my earlier life in – Canada, Australia, and today in Thailand. 

I am an expat Australian/Canadian retired from 3 careers as a – Canuk Mountie, an Aussie public servant & airport profession. My partner is Thai/Australian with a hospitality & medical laboratory background.

Well traveled and enjoying a life-less-ordinary now as an expat in Chiang Mai with my partner of 24 years, Khun Warayut (Ace), we have been here 9 years.

Our furry friends – they add joy to life

HONORARY CONSUL OF AUSTRLIA – I also have the pleasure of being the appointed Honorary Consul for North Thailand. This site previously contained information about the Australian Consulate in Chiang Mai – the new website with consular information is at this link –

Australian Consulate Chiang Mai

For consular matters you can email me – info@australianconsulatechiangmai.com

Life after 9 years in Thailand has morphed into a relaxed and easy (slow) pace. We now enjoy our 4 day morning volunteer activity, our home & garden, our pets, & friend alongside taking in the food scene & activities around Chiang Mai. Keeping in touch with family back in Australia, in the USA & in Thailand is also priority.

My blog postings on this site are intermittent, depending on our activities, travels and adventures. Sometimes we simply post on Facebook about day to day happenings.
