Retired Way Out There: My evolving life on Koh Lanta, Thailand

Coming soon – Summer 2022

“Retired Way Out There: My evolving life on Koh Lanta, Thailand” is coming this summer.  20 years ago, I visited Koh Lanta as a tourist and now I’m retired way out there on this amazing island in southern Thailand. 

Do you ever think about retiring abroad, on a small tropical island?  I did, and now I want to share my adventure with you.  Read about my many trips to the island, and my decision to retire there and get a home.  You can marvel at all my adventures, perils and discoveries, as I transition from a tourist to a local expat. There is also a section with advice for those of you thinking about retiring abroad. The book is interesting, fun, and full of the crazy situations that I got myself into and out of.
