Over the past months of July and August 2018 retirement life in Thailand has been engaging. We took a couple of weeks off from work & life in Chiang Mai and during that time we travelled south to Bangkok, took in the resort town of Hua Hin for a beach break. The rest of the time has been spent keeping busy around Chiang Mai.
