“It was my first day on the ground for a new job in Thailand. After sharing a meal at the main office, one of the HR program coordinators pushed a paper across the desk for me to sign and handed over an envelope filled thick with local currency. She said, ‘This is to start your life here. Let me know if you need any help finding housing or if you have any questions.'”
And that was it. I walked onto the Bangkok subway with a giant wad of cash ready to start my new life. But in reality, I was overwhelmed by where to start.
