Overview

Have you ever dreamt of quitting your job and setting up a business in a tropical paradise, spending days lazing by the beach whilst the money comes rolling in? Most of us have had this dream at some time or the other but the reality can be alarmingly different.
We follow the hilarious trials and tribulations of Kevin, who turned the dream into a reality, leaving his life in England to run a small hotel in the Thailand holiday resort of Pattaya.
His story highlights the vast difference in cultures between East and West and shows the number of day-to-day problems that can be encountered. Whilst everything is viewed in a light- hearted and amusing manner, it is easy to see that the grass is not always as greener on the other side. as we may imagine.

Kevin Paul Meacher was born in Hillingdon, England in 1953. He was educated at Windsor Grammar School for Boys and East Berks College, Maidenhead.
Kevin moved to London in 1972 where he worked for Royal Insurance and went on to work at various Insurance Brokerages through to 1994. During this time he had brief spells away from Insurance working as an Entertainment Agent and Public House Manager. Kevin started his own Real Estate Company in 1995 which he developed into a successful business covering the Bayswater, Paddington and Notting Hill areas of London.
In 2001 Kevin married Jin and their son James was born in January of the following year. They have two other children, Sam and Pakpao, from Jinʼs previous relationship. The family moved to Thailand in early 2003, with Kevin joining them in December 2004, and they now own and manage a twenty-three room hotel, Jasmine Mansion, in Pattaya on Thailandʼs Eastern seaboard.
