Introduce Yourself

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Nice into! (I'd tell you "welcome" but I already replied to you on another thread, LoL.)

To me, Vientiane seemed like it would be a nice place to live, but not a lot to do as a visitor.

For that reason, I only stayed a few days when I had planned to stay a whole week.

I had a lot of fun meeting up with Jacked Camry, RichardPhuket and Sigmoid though. Also went around town on a push-bike. Poor bike.

Vientiane is like if Phnom Penh and Savannah, Georgia had a baby, 20 years ago.

Yes, I think VTE could be quite a nice place to live as well. It has most everything a guy could need and easy access to Thailand for what isn't. My friend was looking for alternatives to Thailand and VTE was a possibility. One thing going against it as a place to live is availability of nice, western style, places to rent. To get anything close to the condo he has in BKK actually costs more in VTE. Anyway didn't mean to derail this thread, I am sure we could find another place to discuss locations other than Cambodia.

Hi all. Australian guy who had been living in Pattaya Thailand before moving back to Australia for a short break. Was married to a Thai, had a massage business, home, car, bike etc. Have always enjoyed Thailand and frequenting my wife's village in Roi-Et. Now looking for greener pastures with my new found freedom and have decided Cambodia is my next best port of call. Don't mind a drink or gas bagging with other expats and locals. Dig tattoos, loose women and writing about 12 years of experience in Thailand about the good, the bad and the ugly. Cheers.

Welcome aboard... but... what's gas bagging?

I looked on urban dictionary and found this... which i'm "guessing" isn't what you meant:
