I would like to say that Joe is one of awesome host on my Thailand journey. He offered very comfort room and flexible space to me.
As Joe has his own education business in Phuket since few years ago he started to live in Phuket, he still used additional private time to take care his guests.
I am lucky to be one of your guests, heard your history from your home town, army, living oversea and teaching English experience. Hope next time I have another chance to cook yummy Asian cuisine for u. Xiexie. (Thanks).
