Welcome to Bueng Ken!


Ken Alexander here, formerly of Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada.  Glad you found  me!  I retired at the end of April 2018 and moved to Thailand to marry my fiancee of 10 years and settle down here to enjoy a very different lifestyle.

I retired after a 30-year career with an engineering consulting firm in Toronto and recently moved to Thailand to marry my fiancee of 10 years and settle down to an exciting new life. I'm an amateur radio operator (VE3HLS in Canada) and hope to become on here eventually. I'm also an amateur photographer and hope to be very busy photographing and showing you my beautiful surroundings. My blog will contain entries on all three subjects, so I hope you don't mind picking through the boring stuff to get to what interests you. Oh. About bueng-ken.com. We live in Bueng Kan province, which is about as far as you can get from Bangkok as you travel northeast. I just thought it would be clever to combine my name with the province's name!

    1. Thanks Dennis! My wife and I enjoy going to Udon once in a while. Our chance to visit the big city and shop for things we can’t get in So Phisai. As a matter of fact, we’ll be there this weekend.

      Let me know next time you’re in the area!
