About Me

Hello everyone, I'm Jamie Ross and I just want to start by thanking you for taking the time to visit my page. I'd like to give you a little bit of honest info about myself and to why I've started this site. So let's start at the beginning, I'm from a small town in the UK and up to my first visit to Thailand I was I guess you could say a bit of a lost soul. I left school at 16 years old with no qualifications, I struggled with depression, self harm, drink and drugs, I couldn't hold down a job and generally my life was not going in the right direction. This all continued until I 20 years old, until the day I decided things had to change, I had to turn things round and get my life back before it was too late. And that's when Thailand came into my life and it changed everything! I got in contact with a guy I used to go to school with, a Thai guy who moved to the UK when he was young. He invited me on his next visit to Thailand and before I knew it we were off to Thailand. We were only there travelling around for 3 weeks, but it opened my eyes to a different world, different people and just a whole different life. I had fallen in love with Thailand and returned home with a new way of thinking and a new way of looking at things, it really did change my life. After the holiday I was desperate to see more of Thailand and the world. I got myself a decent job with decent training and luckily for me a good boss who allowed me to take time away to see more of the world over the years. My life was back on track and I was loving life again. 10 years on from that first visit to Thailand, I've seen a lot of the world and been to Thailand more times than I can remember. I now spend my time about 8 months of the year in Thailand and the rest back in the UK, and have been doing that for 3 years now. I absolutely love my life now and couldn't be happier, it's a stark contrast to where I was all those years ago. Without that first visit to Thailand I don't know where my life would of ended up, I'll be forever grateful to Thailand for helping me get my life back. So after spending so much time here I've experienced and learnt so much so I've set up All Things Thailand to give you some information about the country that I've fallen in love with. Now I'm not saying Thailand will change your life like it did mine but it certainly will be an experience you'll never forgot. Thank you so much for reading my little story and I hope you enjoy my site.

I may know a fair bit about Thailand but computers, websites and blogs I don't. This is my first time at this so any mistakes you see or any advice you may have on how to improve my site I'd love to hear from you. If there's any information you'd like to know about Thailand then feel free to get in contact with me and I'll do my best to help you.

Thank you, 
Jamie Ross
