Aren’t they so darn cute? That’s Jenny and Z.

Podcast with Expats – Episode #1

This is the first episode of our new addition to the podcast series. Knowing that you might be getting tired of hearing my lovely voice 🙂 , we have added podcast interviews with expats like us who are choosing life outside of the norm, so to speak. It’s being a long time coming l know, as l mentioned this in the very first podcast that we would eventually be doing that. It only took a few months. I think it went very well for the first time, as far as trying to coordinate schedules and getting the microphone to work so as to make the voice audible. As time goes by, l hope the process becomes smoother. Thanks for bearing with us, and for growing with us.

And three to go! Get it?? 🙂

This premiere episode features Jenny from the website andthreetogo. Jenny, along with her husband and adorable baby Z reside in Phuket, Thailand currently. Listen to her story on the podcast.

Jenny gives us a taste of life in a foreign land. She has some helpful tips and advice for anyone contemplating the move.

We also talk, along with other things, about:

  • The Cost of living in Thailand and how much is a reasonable amount to bring with you initially to set yourself up. The current rent they pay.
  • How she ended up as an expat.
  • Types of visa you should consider.
  • Food! But of course 🙂 . We have that in common. Her posts on food slay me all the time as l love Thai food.

In addition to the podcast, you can check out her website here for more on life in Phuket. She is also on Facebook , twitter , Instagram  and Pinterest .

Make sure to visit her at any of the social media handles. As usual, we welcome any tips or suggestions you might have regarding the podcast. Feel free to leave a comment on itunes or on Libsyn or send us an email. Our objective is to make the podcast informative and fun, so here is your chance to help shape it. We would really appreciate your taking the time out for constructive criticism.  Rating us on itunes would be great too. I hope you enjoy the  Podcast with Expats series. Has a nice ring to it does it not? It is my hope that we will be able to showcase travelers of all ilk and share their journeys with you.

Pinnable:

Thank you Jenny for being the very first guest. We wish you many more great years of traveling the globe 🙂 .

  2. Sounds like an interesting way to learn about what’s happening on the other side of the world.

    • Yep! I love the fact that l get to talk to people and hear their real voice. I am constantly wondering what people sound like, so l am combining my love for gab with “meeting” virtual friends 🙂

  3. I really enjoyed Thailand when I visited back in 2012. I wish that I had a chance to visit Phuket while I was there at that time, hopefully I will make it there in the future. Great podcast! 😀

    • I’ve never been. Reading about it on her blog as well as on tielandtothailand has peaked my interest and l would like to visit it now :-). Thanks Chanel, you know l’m coming for you soon! 🙂

  4. Nice podcast, loved to hear about it as it is one of the countries that I have on my radar since like… forever 🙂 We’ve had recent friends visit and they loved it, so we have to do it sometime, even though I too love Chinese food and I would miss not having it. But they certainly have other things to keep me busy for a short stay and don’t feel that bad because of the lack of Chinese food :))

    • Thanks C. I hope you are preparing for yours 🙂 . Thailand had not been on my radar, but it has recently moved up there, thanks to blogs like hers. Thai food is a love of mine, and l can only imagine that it is even better over there 🙂 . Aaahh..food..I don’t think l would miss the Chinese food either..haha!

  5. Thailand’s still on our list of places we want to go. The longer we travel the longer our list becomes! Loved your podcast with Jenny and I especially like your discussion that the decision to become a traveler or expat takes some “gumption” but the only barriers to doing it are the barriers YOU create. If you want to travel or live in another country you will find a way to make it happen! Great show KemKem. Anita

    • Thank you so much Anita. I really appreciate the encouragement. Yep! Thailand is on our list now after years of ignoring it. I always just thought of dirty old men looking for underage girls kind of stuff 🙂 . Yeah, put aside the people that can’t truly afford the travel expenses, or have restrictive passports and such, and you find that people can make it happen if they really want to.

  9. I am so fascinated with expats! I never got a chance to live abroad like for college purposes, but one day I think I would be interested in a new cultural experiences so it was nice to see this posting on some experienced expats in Thailand.

    • I think it would be an amazing experience for you. It really does open your eyes to the rest of the world. Nothing like being out of your comfort zone to really spice things up 🙂 . I think you would enjoy it.

      Reply
    • I think so too. It made me want to visit more. I had heard so many good things about Thailand, but kept putting it off..Now..l have to admit, l want to go and see what all the accolades are all about 🙂 .

  10. Congrats on adding the podcast into the mix. This is a great idea, I’ve never had thoughts about living outside of the US but I’m loving the insight. Maybe I need a long visit some place, I’m taking notes.

  11. This is so interesting! I love hearing the experiences of other people who live abroad like we do. This was an awesome idea and I’ll definitely be tuning in. There’s so few of us that can relate to this lifestyle.

    • Exactly right. I had thought about it since the podcast began, but didn’t have the right equipment..just talked about it..haha! I really enjoyed it though, so for sure there will be more. It is quite interesting finding out how life is in different parts of the world. Thank you so much for the support 🙂 .

  12. I do so look forward to listening! It will take me some time to find the time to listen. I’m a speed-reader so reading can go fast and fit in but it’s hard to be a “fast listener” 🙂 —is there a way to make Jenny sound like Minnie Mouse and talk fast? Heeheehee. I’m teasing. Jenny is so real, kind, and open-minded. I know this will be a great Podcast. Terri

    • I know you’re a busy bee, so she will understand 🙂 . She has a lovely voice..and l think you’re right, it would be hard to listen fast..hahah! I agree she is all that and a bowl of chips 🙂

  13. Very cool and Thailand is on my list. I feel like everyone but me has been there lol

    Reply
    • Haha..I feel the same. Everyone has been but us 🙂 . I hope we get to rectify that soon..
