Re: Moving back: An online diary!

There are many things you can do online, which makes it easier to get ready for the move...
Buying car insurance isn't one of them!
I suppose I could use a VPN...

17th September: UPDATE!

Not really much to update. Everything so far is going as planned and without a hitch.

Re: Moving back: An online diary!

Update:

Sold the car for about £4,200 (155,000 baht)

I think I could have waited a few weeks and got more, but frankly, I didn't want the stress of waiting till the last minute to get this...

Re: Moving back: An online diary!

I moved to Texas for a few years. Most of the time in Irving. Also lived in New Orleans, too.

Cheers... yaw'll!
