Will I now move into a tent?

Minimalism it is.. today I mounted the biggest tent I could find in our country house. Really proud that I managed to set it up in front of the camera, in under 30 minutes.

Since we have been talking about building a new house on the country house property to fit everyone when we want to meet here in the lovely country side, then I thought that it would be good to have a solution until we actually have the new house in place. 

So.. long story short.. I will not move into a tent.. but maybe sleep (and maybe even do some work 🙂 ) there at times when family and friends come to visit. Let’s see how things unfold.. 

Time flies so fast

The day finally came when I had to say goodbye to my friends in V Residence. A little bit sad of course since I have gotten attached to this place after having stayed here for almost two months.

After the two hour bus ride I landed at my hotel in Bangkok and then had some time for shopping at the big shopping centers in Siam area (MBK and Siam Paragon). 

Two months is quite a good amount of time to try a new environment out. I will write more about it soon and also post some unpublished photos from my trip (my visit to Koh Lan amongst others).

Tomorrow I will be back in Sweden if everything goes to plan. It will surely feel a bit strange to b back in the colder climate etc but on the other hand really great to be seeing friends and family again.

My 11 000 ฿ monthly hotel room

Voìla my current home at V Residence Serviced apartments.

This place is just outside Pattaya (about 20 min walk to city).

The price equals about 318 USD and lectricity and water charges are added at the end of the month. 

I appreciate staying in a calmer location and not in the middle of the center city. This has been quite a good accomodation I would say.

Still about a week to go of this “30 day rent period”, which I will use to get some more work done and also to enjoy the Thai new year and Songkran that are just beginning these days. 

A similar room for only 6500 ฿/month!? 

I talked to the lady in the reception the other night and she gave me a tip of the apartment building right next to this one. According to her there are apartments there for 6 500 ฿/month (only 189 USD!). And those apartments allegedly also include a little bit bigger balcony and better space for cooking too 🙂 But I don’t think that there’s any swimming pool included.. If I ever want to stay around here again it might be worth checking out though!
