    Keto Lifestyle in Thailand: What do YOU eat?

    I never get bored with a medium size,oven roast,(jacket) potato, brushed with olive oil and salt, combined with tuna mayonnaise and a little grated cheese... using light mayonnaise and sparingly.
  2. I am shortly going back to England for the first time in 2 years. I know, from previous visits, that after around a week there, I will feel increasingly desperate to leave, I cant explain it rationally ,just how it is for me at this time of my life.

    So here is the dilemma, if not Thailand then where?

    Hi, yes i posted the suggestion of Taipei,I think it just never gets mentioned as an option as in the main it’s below the radar as a very low profile place. regarding visas, for a brit anyway it’s simple 90 days stamp on arrival, no limits Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    I agree Cascais is a lovely place and location - just the issue , not only with Portugal, very difficult to secure a girlfriend , one would actually want,as in most west european countries IMHO Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    i suggested taipei earlier - i don’t think there’s much difference in living costs overall these days- last year i was at a “Hash” in Taipei - all the girls: women looking for partners were called into the circle - 6 walked in ! Another issue in Taipei is the average salary is quite low - so it is possible to live a “ local style “ life affordable - i love the place - totally safe. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect

    Taipei, Taiwan 90 day entry stamp on arrival, lovely gentle polite people, wide availability of elegant educated females, affordable cost of living. I could go on.

    Vietnam Places & Things to see & do

    Sapa is a great “ side trip “ if you take the overnight train from Hanoi, arrive daybreak, find ( easily, a local tour guide)and hike in the mountains for 2-3 days and see the chinese border also.. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  12. I have lived/travelled in Thailand for around 2 of the last 14 years I have lived in Asia .I visit this forum as its great to keep my feet on the ground. I live in Shanghai now, I am 62 my girlfriend, of 4 years is 47,she is lovely, educated, own apartment, decent job, fluent in Mandarin, English and German. I would suggest if you are looking for a similar partner 40 years old, plus ,in China, there are countless independent women available, looking for a life partner ,not for financial support. If I ever have to leave China I would go to Taiwan ( which is also deemed to be part of China) where the availability of quality ladies is amazing IMHO, I would not live in Thailand,2 visits a year, see friends ,hang out,perfect.

    Return to UK

    Hi, I wish you well, you must have been through so much these recent years. Could you look at some of the larger charities websites and see what services they can offer, eg Salvation Army, Shelter. Once you have decided where to live obviously contact the local social services to see what support is available. Good luck just seen the above reply re citizens advice bureau, I didn't think of that, great advice
