Welcome to Colin's World. I am originally from England but am now semi-retired and live on the island of Koh Samui, off the south-east coast of Thailand. Before settling down here I spent 24 years years working overseas, including spells in Brunei, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Oman. I consider myself fortunate in having been given the opportunity to travel and to meet so many people of different races and to have sampled their cultures.

There is no specific theme to this site (i.e. hacking, knitting, the sex-life of gorillas or bagpipe playing). This is about what interests me (selfish, I know); I hope that some of these things will interest you as well. Take a browse around the pages and the various links then come back to the Home page and send me some feedback - it will prove that somebody out there is really reading this and that my efforts have not been wasted.

I have now also included a fledgling property section that may well develop into its own full site. I have land for sale on Koh Samui and can also offer property building and management services. I also hope to be offering property letting services before too long.


What else can you find on this site?

The Property Section - A fairly new section offering land for sale on Koh Samui, property sales and rentals. It also offers advice for anyone interested in buying property on the island of Koh Samui together with plenty of information on the island itself. Please check out THIS property if you are looking for something special.

The Food Page - Links to the best food recipe sites that I have so far found on the Internet. If you are into food and cooking, this is the place to look - and if you know of any better sites, send me an email and I'll include them.

The Thailand Page - Everything you ever wanted to know about travel in Thailand - either on the page or through the many links.

The Encyclopedia Page - This is a page containing links to a wealth of on-line encyclopedias - over 100! - many of them being specialist sites  on a whole variety of subjects from African Music to Zoroastrianism.

The Dictionary Page - Over 160 links to specialist dictionaries available on the Internet, plus the Word of the Day and your very own On-Line Reference. This may sound like a dry subject but once you've taken a look at A Dictionary of Drinks and Cocktails or amused yourself with the Unabridged dictionary of Fart Slang I think you'll agree that there's a lot of fun stuff to be found here.

The Trivia Page - It's a case of 'anything goes' on this page. A definition of trivia is 'anything of small importance'. However I certainly don't think the authors of some of these sites will see them as trivia after all the hard work they've put into creating them. Here you'll find many things from the esoteric  to the dumb, and many fun things in between.

If you continue further down this page you can read This Day in History and Today's Birthday, send me an email or check out the daily cartoon. Further items will be added to this site as and when my wife gives me time/permission!
