Destination free pdf Influenced and intrigued as he was by all things Asian, and desperate to escape the monotony of America's first planned community, when Carleton Cole's path took him to Thailand, it came as no surprise to him. For years he had been fascinated by Thailand, reading everything he could about the country and even taking a menial job in a local Thai restaurant to rub shoulders with Thais exiled in the American Midwest. Confronted by the seriously limited employment options open to the holder of a liberal-arts bachelor's degree, he set about transplanting himself to what would soon become his adopted home, and a base for exploring the rest of Asia. An atypically quiet American who never really fit into US society, Carleton Cole has found his place in the Land of Smiles, and has developed and maintained a passion for things Thai and Asian.

About Carleton Cole

Having been born in Switzerland, raised in the USA and having gone on to live in Thailand and visit another thirty countries, Carleton Cole truly sees himself as a citizen of the world.Happily settled down in the homeland of his Thai wife, Cole has spent 12 years in the Land of Smiles, eight of which as a copyeditor at The Nation newspaper. He holds a master's degree in print journalism, and now works on the dreamy Thai island of Phuket as a senior travel writer for a website that arranges hotel reservations in countries around the world.By way of diversions, Cole has tried his hand at drawing and graphic design, embroidery, playing squash and swimming, while many of his free hours are nowadays devoted to travelling to different beaches and restaurants, cities and countries.Carleton and his wife Sutamon regularly travel back to the US state of Maryland to visit his mother Barret, sister Amy, brother-in-law Greg and nieces Laura and Charlotte, as well as aunts, uncles and cousins elsewhere in the eastern US.In their mid-30s, Carleton and Sutamon look forward to sharing long lives together, and to travelling and sharing their trips with others, whether through word of mouth, sharing photographs or through more books like this one.
