Originally hailing from the USA, Paul currently lives in Bangkok. Moving to Thailand in November, 2016, though no stranger to the city having lived and worked there from 2011-2014. The move was due to the cost of living being much cheaper than the US, the people being very kind, the absolutely amazing food and Bangkok being an incredible hub to explore Asia. All combining to give Paul the freedom to follow his passion and become a full-time food and travel blogger!
Now to the questions …
For the rest of your life only be allowed to leave your home country of the US for 2 weeks a year or only spend 2 weeks a year in your home country?
This is an easy question to answer! I would choose to only spend 2 weeks a year in the US. Honestly that would be a lot longer than I normally spend in the US. I’ve grown accustomed to living overseas. Since 1993, I’ve lived outside of America 22 of the past 26 years. I would usually go back to the US for a couple of weeks every few years to visit family. But now that I live in Bangkok my family doesn’t mind coming to see me!
