Man on the move with humor '
Interests: Hi Readers! My name is Carl Doherty, many others know me as Uncle Fester, I am not sure how that nick name came about but now I seem to be stuck with it! I am aged 45 from Lancashire in the UK, I have been travelling all over Thailand for the past 21 years and had many memorable experiences, My hobbies and interests are Manchester United, watching Manchester United on TV, talking about Manchester United at the bar, drinking , womanizing and womanizing, in-between all that excitement, I love taking an interest in Thailand's fascinating people, culture, language and of course the beautiful scenery. I hope you enjoy my blog and find it both filled with useful information and with a hint of humor added occasionally. Please feel free to contact me with any type of article that you think might be suitable for our wide range or readers and I will certainly consider if for publication. If you have a Thailand based business advertising is also free! Many thanks again for all your support! Cheers for now! Uncle Fester
