This is an open invitation for anyone who wants their travel story seen on my blog, anyone and everyone is invited to participate.... below are some sample questions I have to offer, if there are any you feel I should add then please let me know !!!!


Tell me about yourself. How did you get to be where you are as you are typing this ?

What is your long-range objective? Where do you want to be 10 or 15 years from now?

What is your greatest weakness?

If you had to live your life over again, what would you change?
What advice would you give to someone who drops everything to follow their dreams ?

What have you learned about yourself throughout your travels ?

What is the favorite place you have been to ?

If you were stranded on a desert island, what are 5 things you would have to have ?

Describe an event , where you were reminded again, why you chose to be a world traveler ?

How long did it take for you to get use to life as an expat ?

What human qualities were most influential in shaping the way you lived and influenced your times?

Which quality or trait has proved most troubling and difficult adjusting to your new lifestyle?

Which quality or trait was most beneficial?

Did you make any major mistakes or bad decisions? If so, what were they and how would you have chosen and acted differently if you were in some others' shoes?

Many people act out of a "code" or a set of beliefs which dictate choices. It may be religion or politics or a personal philosophy. To what extent did you act by a code or act indepently of any set of beliefs? Were there times when the code was challenged and impossible to follow?


Thank you so much for doing this .... I eagerly look forward to reading your answers




also I will be doing some questions about the DARK side of thailand... hope to get some good responses... email me if you would like to be on my site.... let me know if you want the travel questions or the risque questions...

If I were to wager a guess at why, I’d say that users don’t “browse” forms. The interaction style users engage in with forms is different, and requires its own study and design best practices.
