Hello! I’m Gill Morris and talkingthailand is my blog. I’m a single woman, in her 40s, living in Bangkok. I’m currently working as an English Instructor but the things I love the most are writing and photography.
I love writing. I write blog posts and have written a book about Bangkok’s European Heritage. I always have some project or other going on and I’m currently writing about the last 12 years of my life where I stepped outside my comfort zone and went in search of answers that would change my life. My new book recounts the chapters of my life, the people I met, and the lessons I learned along the way.
What’s talkingthailand about?
Talkingthailand covers awesome things to do and see in Thailand and other countries. You’ll find places to go, which are off the beaten track, in posts like http://talkingthailand.co.uk/bangkok-2/a-day-out-in-the-green-lung/ and the plain bizarre like http://talkingthailand.co.uk/bangkok-2/bus-baby/ I even talk about things that crop into my mind now and then like http://talkingthailand.co.uk/bangkok-2/going-it-alone/

More About Me
I was born in Edinburgh, but spent most of my life in Northampton, England. I have 3 brothers, 2 sisters, 3 nephews and 1 niece. My parents are the most wonderful people I know.
I have been married twice, and found myself single at 37. Who said life begins at 40? It certainly did for me. I am happier now than I ever was before.
At 17, I was a model and one of my jobs was to promote fireworks. I got my photographs in the Daily Express and Torquay Times.
I was a fully qualified financial advisor, among other things, and have got over 20 years customer service experience. In the UK, I ran my own Spanish delicatessen business, and a volunteering business in Thailand.
I love learning. I have a Bachelor of Science degree, and I’m always reading something. The older I get the more I want to learn.
I have travelled to Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, India, USA, Mexico and Greece, to name a few, and now I’ve settled in Bangkok, but who knows where I will end up.
I have a secret passion for Bollywood.
I love wine.
I exercise most days. I love to run, swim, and work out in the gym.
Living abroad has taught me that I don’t need all the material things that seemed important before.
I believe that you are never too old to do anything, you’ve just got to set your mind to it.
I would love to share my experiences with you. The passion I have for all things Asian has grown in me since landing on Thailand’s sunny shores, and I’d love for you to come along for the ride.
Thank you for joining me!
