Tom @isaanlife ~ an Isaan journey of discovery


Tom, an American, living in Isaan. The old man has a blog, and travels around Thailand. He journeys to the most simplest of places, patiently taking snapshots and video footage of the Isaan life and history.

Tom is an experienced traveler, he toys with his electronic gadgets to record moments. Through his eyes, I am learn a bit about Isaan every day. Through his zest for Isaan life, I grow eager to visit the land that he calls home.

I am no stranger to traveling distant foreign lands, but I must admit there’s something so outrageously exciting about his journeys ~ I get to be with him (and another friend & brother, Ray, from Oz) on his outings; occasionally listen to his grumbling, his candid behavior, and share a bizarre laugh with him. I envy the simple excitement he infused into his day, when he goes on live telecast via TwitCasting ~ I have yet to see others use TwitCasting on Isaan.

Thanks to Tom, I am glued to my tablet almost every day at 5pm (Isaan Time), and the excitement of being young and having fun again.

Join Tom, explore Isaan. Come, come.
