He is a retired Canadian. She is a retired Thai schoolteacher. Being a native, English speaking Thai with travel counseling training, she can be of assistance in planning both a Thailand vacation, as well as maximizing your experience from this location. We would do everything desired, to ease one's entry into this culture. If desired, we would pick you up at the Bangkok airport and assist you to settle in. Given our retirement status, non-simultaneous exchanges are welcome. We are fair weather wimps and avoid northern climes. We have easy access to alternative accomodations so exchange partners could be here during their winters. If you prefer a hospitality exchange in this Asian Culture that would be lovely also.
