In the city or in the village ?

Recommended Posts

So then are you a city person and a village person...?

My self i could live in the village with all mod cons in the house.

I would live in Udon Thani i'd have everything I need with a 15 minute drive.

Just spend 4 days in HKG, and God i hated everything of the city life. 

Noice 24/7, people everywhere and running.

Village near the beach for me like Sanur here in Bali or my village in France. 

Village in the boonies, jungle, toundra, rice field etc.....FORGET it for anything more than 7 days.

I am definitely a city boy, born and raised in London. I like to visit the countryside now and then, but would not want to live there.

Of the times that I have stayed up in the village near Selaphum, I am going stir crazy after 3 days, and looking for excuses to jump in the car. 

Being woken up every morning by a  cock at 6am is not my cup of tea either

Etretat is nice, but a bit too much rain !

I lived on the Bassin d'Arcachon, south of Bordeaux, on the Atlantic.  Weather already better.  If I go back to France, that's where I would go back to !

City boy all the way, love visiting other locations, but at the end of the day, it's the city for me. I got asked last month being back home in San Jose, Calif  if I am bored yet living in Thailand?  Hardly....wifeys house here in the " burbs" has everything I need. 

Have any of you ever thought, well as I get older ( like me at 61 now) perhaps getting out of the city might be a good thing? I am not the "sit around the house type" and watch TV all day.  I thought perhaps 10 years ago, looking forward a bit, that maybe I would feel different?  Fat chance. I am having more fun now then ever here.  Ok, will agree, perhaps my type of fun, is not your type of fun...we are all different. 

At the end of the day for me.....I still like and enjoy meeting new people.......where others do not.

I am 65, had a rather hectic life since 18, travelled and worked a bit everywhere. Mainly in cities (high rise, subway, underground parkings) . Enjoyed all of it, but now I just want a quiete place, near the sea, with decent western restaurants, availability of western food in the supermarket, and doing feck all. 

The Miss, after 2 y in SGP and 14 in HKG is exactly same. Well, she aint 35 anymore...

So, for the moment, the life we have suits us well. Shared between Bali and the jungle house (me only a little bit jungle...).

And I have always been a lonely wolf, so social meetings is not my thing.

I like cities and the crowd; 

but being on my own. 

I am a day drinker,

I like to sit somewhere ( this days usually in Sukhumvit 55/Bangkok) and watch the world go by.

I’m originally from the countryside in UK,  but when I moved to Hua Hin I thought it was the dogs bollocks. But more and more I’m drawn to the farm in Nakhon Sawan now and next visit will be virtually all spent out in the sticks there, with the odd foray into some northern cities. 

The wife and I were never into the bright lights, so that makes the choice easy. 

The odd trip to London for a couple of days does make a change, but anymore than that and I’m champing at the bit to get home.

Village and then when I need to escape I tend to go to a beach resort or tourist area outside of the city.  Cities for me are really for special entertainment, culture and shopping and away in a few days. 

I am a country boy despite being born in London, having lived in London and worked in London.

Ironically I may be in Bangkok for up to a week on my next trip but that is enforced on me due to the to visit the British Embassy and getting documents for marriage.

Can easily do both. Stayed up in the village for close on two years although only 28 days at a time as I work 28/28 I enjoyed it though. 

Been back living in Pattaya for five years now but very seldom head into the city centre. Just moved into a new place in north Pattaya so I'd expect visits to the city centre to be even less.
