Moving to the Northern City

After long and careful consideration (Bua looked at the house and loved it), we’ve moved to the city of Udon Thani, in the province of Udon Thani. We’re now in a detached, single family home just a tiny bit inside the ring road around UT.

Udon HouseIt’s owned by a friend still living in Pattaya, and we got a good deal to come up here, get it back in shape, and overall enjoy the country life.

What I was looking for was to get more of a feeling of living in residential Thailand, rather than living in Tourist Thailand. Pattaya does have many wonderful attributes, but even living 4 km out on the Darkside, it still was fairly touristy. Our here, I rarely ever see another farang in our community/village. I know there are other foreigners living around here, I just don’t ever see them.

October’s been our first month in Udon. So far, I’m wondering why we didn’t do this last year. It’s been a great moved, and while I do miss my friends in Pattaya, we’ve already scheduled our first ‘vacation’ back to Pattaya in mid November.
