  1. The food looks amazing. Wow 3 months in the hospital. My 2 weeks this past March in Thailand was long enough. I’m glad he survived that difficult time. Great interview. πŸ‘£

    So missing Thailand and especially the food. Can’t wait for things to open back up.

  2. Hi gift and joe interesting story interesting person there is good people in Thailand everywhere hope you are both well stay safe from frank in the uk London

  3. Everyone has a story right. We wish Dave and partner well on their journey. Nice interview Joe. The human spirit hey. Sometimes when we least expect it, we somehow find a way….or, the way finds us. πŸ™

  4. Hey Joe n Gift…. im glad Dave is well. Just a comment for viewers who want to live in Thailand. I’m on an O.A. Visa which means 65,000 baht or 800,000 baht put into a thai bank. But also you need medical insurance, which i use Pacific Cross , cost at my age 63 , 38,000 baht or $ 1200 USD for 1 year full coverage. Also coverage is anywhere in the world , including America. Furthermore, no border runs. Must get O.A. VISA in America , $200.

  5. What a sad but inspiring story joe. So brave of Dave to tell us about his wife who sadly passed away …. he has a new journey now and his girlfriend sounds like a lovely lady who done so much for him. I wish him all the best for his and nit noi wedding and their future together

  6. What a great interview, Dave if you see this comment sorry for the loss of your wife and great recovery from your illness, wish you the best with your new wife Dave, thanks Joe and Gift ,πŸŒ΄πŸ‘πŸ»πŸŒ΄

  7. Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things. Great to see things are getting better Dave & take care buddy πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ™

  8. WOW what a great life experience to learn from, thank you, Dave, for sharing, all the very best for your wedding. Great video Joe and Gift keep them coming 10 / 10.

  9. Thailand’s health system is legendary good. That’s one reason more for a calm and enjoyable stay there. Good that he is alive and that there is more to come for him.
    I think Thailand is the right place for you. I do miss the food. Oh man. Stay clean. …

  10. As the saying goes. . . .4th. times . .a . . . charm? law lin law lin (I’m joking I’m joking). Best of luck Dave to you and the Misses. $30K is a bargain of the century.

  11. HEY JOE AND GIFT AND FRIEND DAVE, EXCELLENT VIDEO MY FRIEND. DAVIES STORY WAS VERY INTERESTING. I JUST GOT A NOTE THAT MY FIRST WIFE DIED ON JULY 20TH. I HADN’T SEEN HER IN ABOUT 30 YEARS BUT STILL IT EFFECTS YOU. 3 MONTHS IN THE HOSPITAL IS ONE HELL OF A LONG TIME AND NO INSURANCE TO BOOT. ONE MILLION BAHT IS A LOT OF MONEY TO PAY OUT BUT HE IS STILL ALIVE SO I WOULD SAY IT’S WORTH IT. DAVE SEEMS LIKE A GREAT GUY. SOMEONE THAT WOULD BE GOOD TO KNOW. HE SEEMS VERY CALM BUT WHEN YOU COME THAT CLOSE TO DEATH I THINK IT HAS THAT EFFECT ON YOU. I KNOW IT DID ME.

    THE FOOD YOU GUYS HAD LOOKED VERY YUMMY. I JUST LOVE THAI FOOD. MY BUSINESS PARTNER LIVES ON THE THIRD FLOOR OF MY CONDOMINIUM AND IS AN EXCELLENT COOK. HE CAN THROW STUFF TOGETHER SO QUICKLY IT BOGGLES THE MIND. IT TAKES ME ALL DAY TO MAKE A SOUP. LOL

  12. great vlog again Joe, fair play to Dave after a hard time and came thru much the better for it, If he keeps growing his beard til Christmas, he’ll have to problem finding part-time work dressed up as the man himself, ho ho ho πŸ‘πŸ‘

  13. Wow a very emotional story from Dave ( keep clear of covid after that bad bout of pneumonia ) . I did laugh at your wife, Gift say at the end she wanted to take A NAP ! after the food 😁

  14. Great interview.. but once again.. how many times people who don’t take out insurance in Thailand. Now for a guess once he get insurance.. they won’t cover his heart and underlying conditions

  15. Interesting story. Glad things worked out for Dave and he found meaning in life again. Sounds like he has a amazing soon to be wife. Good for him. Take care guys, God Bless…

  16. Joe heartfelt story. Just as Dave thought his life was over, the goof Lord sent him a new girlfriend to spend the rest of his life with. GOOD LUCK DAVE. ALL THE BEST!

  17. I’m now in the moderna covid-19 trials here in America. So, think I’m covered from the virus now. Kev-in-Thailand bills at the start were I think around $24,000 for his rounds of chemotherapy and would he have done the surgery to remove the cancer left after the chemotherapy that would have been around $40,000 . Of course Kev left thailand to get treated in england. Kev didn’t have health insurance and said he wouldn’t buy it also in thailand. You can’t always predict what illness or accident will happen to you in the future,but I like to think my VA giving me my health care covers me very well and the cost is free.

  18. Happy tears at Dave’s story. So touching. I’m so glad he found new purpose and happiness at life. Very glad he recovered from such a serious illness. A friend once asked me shy the heck I’d want to move to Thailand and what would we do if we needed something like open heart surgery. Hahaha! They just don’t know. Love to you both! β€οΈπŸ™πŸΌ

  19. Very good interview Joe, Dave seems a very nice man, and I thank him for his honesty ,It’s not easy to pour your heart out!, my very best wishes to him and his future wife.

  20. Thanks for sharing your story Dave… enjoy your wedding day and all the best!! Nice interview Joe. Hey Gift. I like the shirt Joe. You guys stay safe and well stay tuned. :-))

  21. Great video….shows that everything works out for the best…I recall Gift stayed with you when you was in the hospital….hope the dogs are well…..Jack

  22. Sawadee Krap Ka! Such a wonderful story. My best wishes to this gentleman on his new endeavors.
    Maraming Salamat for bringing his story to Life.

  23. Wow three months in the hospital and ICU for a million baut. I was having chest pains a few years ago and went to the hospital. Did a lot of tests , but ended up being heart burn ingestion. For one day in the ICU 40000 in Austin Texas. lucky I had good insurance.

  24. Hi Gift and Joe . All is well. Thanks for that great interview with Dave . Sorry about his wife RIH. I believe the same thing she believe. And yes life is worth living Especially in Thailand . Every time I hear about and use Thailand hospital medical. I am pleased. I am still looking into Thai insurance, not ready now because I still have insurance Through work and am only a tourist to Thailand now. Thanks o

  25. Good video. Good for Dave he found happiness. Sounds like his new wife to be is a great lady and I hope we get to meet her in the near future. I wish I had the money to travel it looks a lot better than what I have in my life. Enjoy.

  26. Greetings Joe and Gift from Dallas Texas. Good interview, I will definitely have to meet you and Chuck and Paige and Teacher Thomas Dinner on me when they let tourism fully opens back up. Thinking about retirement in Thailand or Philippines. Thailand seems more together dealing with this Pandemic.
    Thanks for informative videos

  27. Glad that Dave has found someone special to fill the void left by the death of his dear wife. Very sad story but nice to see that Dave is looking forward in life.

  28. OK… so wasn’t expecting to tear up but… Dave’s story very deep meaning to life and how quickly one can go from loving your life to the haze of just treading water every day. Man oh man do I ever understand that.

  29. That was a great story. Like him, I went to Kamala for 9 days, in 2018 and decided that Thailand was for me. Heck, we may have been in Kamala at the same time. Hopefully, I’ll get to meet Dave and his wife when I get back to Thailand. Thanks for another great video and story Joe. Take care.

  30. I am always amazed at hospitals in Thailand. They are always so happy to admit patients and keep them for days and weeks, and in this gentleman’s case; months. I can’t imagine any procedure except the most rare and serious in the US where the patient would remain in a hospital for three months.

  31. Dave seems to be a wonderful guy.Glad he found such a nice future wife. It would have been nice to know where and how he met her.
    Joe n Gift will contact you once in Prachuap. I hope in the second phase the quarantine restrictions will be over.
