Living In Chiang Mai – DD3


Visiting Chiang Mai


Before Tracy and Dom moved to Chiang Mai, they went up there to have a look around first.  They rented a bike and got to know the city a bit and looked at places to rent.

First place was dangerous for Dom, as he would have smashed his head going up and down the stairs.  The second place was too massive and too far out for both Tracy and Dom to live.  Third place was perfect, had a small yard with a parking area, also, Tracy and Dom bring their two (2) cats, Roso & Lily with them to Chiang Mai, which the landlady says is fine.  Dom also explains a half bath, three quarters bath and a full bath for those that don’t know.



Moving To Chiang Mai


PhantomWaveOnce Tracy and Dom move to Chiang Mai, the first thing they need to do is get motorcycles.  Dom gets a Honda Phantom 200cc and Tracy gets a Honda Wave 110cc.  Dom talks about what it was like to try find a job by emailing language schools, but they don’t respond to him.  Tracy and Dom adopt their dog Spike.

Dom finds work at a few places in Chiang Mai before finally being hired by Tracy to work for the British Council in Chiang Mai.  Overall it was a good place for him to work, and was a great learning experience for him.


Motorcycle Trips

  1. Your “always remember” quips make me happy.

    Dom, your passion for teaching is inspiring. I have no interest in teaching, but your journey to following a passion (and subsequent passions in later podcasts I’ve listened to out of order), is so motivating. I love the path to true, real interests and loves.

    Very cool journey – physically and otherwise! 🙂

    • 😀 I’m glad you like them. 😀 Thank you so much Kim. That really means a lot to me. You’re going to like my next podcast. 🙂 Keep an eye/ear out for it. 🙂
