    I am fascinate about Thailand, its people, culture, history, etc. I truly enjoy every moment of life in this fascinating vivid country. This amazing moments I will capture with my camera, sharing with my family, friends, and social Medias as well as forums and blogs.

    What inspired me about starting this blog? A few days ago I read a quote:


    This quote kicked in and I got literally the WOW loudly out of my mouth.
    The idea was born creating a Blog called fascinating Thailand. It’s all about what I see in my daily life and what I feel about it, and the small city in which I live inspired to write about Thailand as well.

    The small city in which I live has no tourist attractions in the customary sense. It is a small town with more than 10,000 inhabitants. Many Chinese immigrants have settled here; agriculture is the main income. Many restaurants with the most different courts adorn the high street. The town looks hectic and, nevertheless, it has not lost in coziness. People are anyhow related around seven corners live in joy and warmth. Modern and antique are taking place side by side. Young and Old meet with respect. It is a pleasure living here.

    Sometimes life is living us, and we dance like puppets on strings. But what makes us successful or in other words, what is the success? I read once a great thought about to succeed.

    TO SUCCEED…
    Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
    To laugh often and love much,
    to win the respect of intelligent persons,
    and the affection of children;
    to earn the approbation of honest critics
    and endure the betrayal of false friends;
    to appreciate beauty,
    to find the best in others;
    to give one’s self;
    to leave the world a bit better,
    whether by a healthy child, a garden patch
    or a redeemed social condition;
    to have played and laughed with enthusiasm
    and sung with exultation;
    to know even one life has breathed easier
    because you have lived —
    this is, to have succeeded.
    And as Buddha once said: “Do not dwell upon the past; do not dream into the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”
    I wish all the reader happiness on your path, and that you know that everybody laughs in the same language.
