The magnificent Wat Doi Suthep Temple, Chiang Mai
I’m living in USA. I worked as an international flight attendant (purser) for 27 years then got into real estate just before the crash enjoying a good start and an even more precipitous descent!.
I’m about to lose my home go into bankruptcy with a net $550 pension (after deductions and child support). I’m telling you all this because my intuition……I’m wondering if I can ‘retire’ in Chiang Mai or anywhere in Thialand on the paltry $550/mo?.
I have about $25k to start a business but it would have to be soon before filing bankruptcy.
My daughter is 12 living with her mom. I’m a young 58 but have sunk into depression. I remember my 8 month South American back pack trip…..that was when I relized that living in USA was stressful.
It occured to me then that if things ever got to stressful in the future…..that returning to ‘underdeveloped’ countries would be the perfect remedy.
Now years later, that time has come. Any suggestions/information you can provide shall be helpful. If you have any ideas/suggestions aboutincome opportunities that your willing to share or perhaps work together on…..please let me know.
Fortunately, I have free flight travel benefits for life……perhaps there’s an opportunity there…? I read an internet article that said Chiang Mai has serious air pollution….is that true?
You probably never received an email like this but I was a vibrant, adventurous, athletic male that now battles to find the light of hope and inspiration.
It’s funny, when traveling through Colombia, Bolivia, Peru in particular I remember thinking how great it would be to somehow market the Indian crafts to the outside world….Ebay didn’t exist.
Hope to hear from you,
