but this seems right? sending my passport and stuff? seems sketchy
I just went through this as well and was rather sketched out at the thought of sending my passport away. I wrote an email to check on the status of my visa last week, no response, kinda nervous. Yesterday it comes in the mail, no problem.

Of course I don't live in Canada ...

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Get the double entry in ur home contry then stay
60days and do a bordercross then stay
60days more then buy
30days extension for 1900bath THEN
go to laos apply for same visa, spend a week there get the paperworks done THEN enter Thailand again and repeat?

Is this what you guys are doing to stay in the country? have I got it right?

I hate Thaivisas

If your currency is us dollar buy at home the change will kill you.
If not Thailand may be a bit cheaper but not much. Middle range stuff will be quite cheaper but top of the line not.

My first authentic foodpoison in Thailand Chiang Mai. Valium, antibiotics and some kind of powder to mix to water. Yay!

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

The pills look like generic Immodium. Wow, you're really tearing through that valium. Did they just give it to you or did you ask for it? The powder just contains a a bunch of electrolytes (like Gatoraid) to replenish the ones you've lost through, um, fluids.

I just told them to fix my foodpoison. What i have googled thats the most basic "set" they give to you. The antibiotics even will fix chlamydia if you have one . After taking the pills and 40hours sleep i'm feeling like a newborn baby jesus.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

For anyone who is interested, my wife and I are keeping a little blog of our Thailand adventure. This isn't spam is it?

edit: sorry, it's too easy to have ads or googlesense in blogs, so i'd just rather keep this off.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Thanks for a good read. I'm leaving for Thailand the 9. Oct with Cookie, and I can hardly wait.

I just have one question. Is it easy to find shoes in size US 12? I recon that it isn't the most common size in SE Asia..
