    Oh, you joined earlier than many of us! It's a good thing that you finally decided to post in the forums. Actually, we welcome very much contributions from Thais, especially in issues which they can throw in their first hand experiences.

    Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or an idiot from any direction.

    Big welcome, Norb

    I look forward to hearing more of your experiences from what seem to have been a courageous and challenging journey.

    I'm also a grandpa (my granddaughter is aged 10) and like you I feel I have been blessed with a spirit of adventure. I live in Brisbane, Australia, and sometimes wish it was closer to Thailand so I could spend more time there.

    My second and latest visit was in November last year when I had the privilege of visiting a Thai child I sponsor there through World Vision. She is aged 10 and lives near Krabi in the south. It was a deeply moving experience to meet her after corresponding with her for about a year. I met her at her school and had a really great quality day with her which also enabled me to meet her classmates and teachers.

    She is a great kid and I felt the experience gave me a lot more back than the relatively small contribution I make to remain her sponsor.

    The visit deepened my affection for Thailand and Thai people and I look forward to returning when I can. However, like most pensioners, I need to keep counting my pennies, but the prospect of another visit is an incentive to save even harder.

    I look forward to keeping in touch and to sharing more with you and others.

    Sincerely, Pat Stanton.

    That's cool. I sponsor a couple of WorldVision kids down south but have never visited them. Is it easy to set up?

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Patrick and live in Brisbane, Australia. I recently returned from Thailand where I had the privilege of meeting a young girl that I sponsor there through World Vision. She is aged 10 and lives near Krabi in the south.

    I met her at her school and it was really great to see her personally after having been in touch by letters, cards etc for about a year. She showed me over her school, introduced me to her classmates and teachers and then accompanied us for lunch. She is a great kid and it really was a quality experience to spend the day with her.

    I feel I got a lot more back than what I contribute to her sponsorship.

    This was my second visit to Thailand and I have always had great respect for the country and Thai people. My latest visit was part of a journey which took me across to Cambodia where I spent two months teaching English in a school and also an orphanage.

    On my next visit to Thailand, I hope to work with young people in schools there. By the way, can someone tell me the correct spellling for Esan in the north-east? I have seen it spelt Essan, Issan etc and would really like to know the right way.

    I look forward to keeping in touch with you all in this forum and to learning heaps more about Thailand.

    Best wishes. Patrick.
