Return The Favor Thailand

In this video we take you to one of Gift’s favorite Thai noddle soup restaurant where we meet our new friends Rich & Kanok. After lunch Rich & Kanok wanted to show us the most amazing beach that they found about 10 minutes from where we live. Rich and Kanok have been working hard on cleaning up the trash in our community for weeks now and today we will return the favor.

  3. Hi Joe, we were wondering what ever happened to your โ€œthird Sonโ€œ Tommy as you described him. Is he still in Thailand? or did he decided to move back to the U S?
    Have a great time and stay safe!

  4. You made my day Joe and Gift. This video showed more about the kind and giving part of who you are. Keep giving back! Might I add, the beach and water look stunning. You are a lucky man, but you earned it! It’s good to see you are learning some thai language, gift would love that. Be well

  7. Nice one Joe and Gift, fantastic appreciation for the beautiful countryside you are fortunate enough to live in. I’m sure as the picking continues more people, both Thai and Farang will join and participate.
    Superb! Hopefully see you before this years end.

  8. Thanks Gift and Joe for your video’s. At this time when we are spending so much time at home in the U.S.A. it is nice to reflect and daydream about coming to Thailand. Stay safe and healthy.

  9. dear, when I see you come home, how that dog reacts to you, I know enough, what are you doing well, I hope that you will soon be released from just the thought of corona al. and the many friends you know can visit as it once was.

  10. Brilliant work!! Since you guys wanna clean so much maybe you can come over & show “Som” a thing or two. Joe just warning you now my “kamado” grill is in transit from overseas you better get onto these famous smoky BBQ ribs fast.. 555

  11. Joe and gift, I am so very happy you are both heathly and livin’ the life.. Keep it up, great work with the beach. Your friends are doing amazing also with all the picking up of rubbish.

  12. it is wonderful to see the beautiful beaches after your friends have picked up the trash …very thoughtful of you and Gift, to pick up trash before your friends returned! We are staying safe here in OKLAHOMA and want the same for you and Gift

  13. I see Gift is now a member of “Cowboys World”!…….555555555……and Joe thanks for doing something to help clean the world…..I know of a couple of places near where I will be in Lam Lukka I want to do something with when I get back. Stay Safe my friend

  14. that was a beautiful beach its so sad that people don’t value the nature it has to offer .thanks for sharing the dream that others would die for

  15. I really admire the both of you for picking up the rubbish. My husband and I do the same wherever we are
    If only people learnt to take their own litter home, and pick up what they see. Well done. Love you both x

  16. Hi Joe and Gift, I look forward to watch your video everyday. Thank you. You guys are awesome. I hope one day my husband and will get to meet you.

  17. Must give you credit your videos are always very informative compared to some bloggers on here I no need to really ask you much questions as you pretty well cover all this by your blogging I must say your very good with that cameras thanks to you both for sharing all these encounters

  18. To be fair, most of the crap seemed to be at the tide line, a lot of the tree line stuff will have been blown there by the wind. This is something that will probably take decades to put right, as the sea dumps what we’ve dumped into it, back onshore.

  19. Hello Joe and Gift..life isn’t always about traveling.. cleaning and helping your community is very noble .
    Satu satu satu ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

  20. I always thought Thai people in general respect their surroundings and not litter. With no tourists around surprised to see 2 days later there was trash.
    Hopefully this “good deed bug”” goes around and people are more aware and helpful in cleaning up after themselves.
    ***sidenote***
    Love to see Americans starting something so beneficial.
    Cheers bro

  25. Actually not familiar with that Noodle place…will give it a shot.But not right now.like yourself trying to pull back .Put on a few kilos.Arties girlfriend makes an amazing massuman..which she gifts to me.Not great for weight loss .๐Ÿคฃ

  26. When the thai people depend so heavily on tourism to survive WHY don`t they keep the beaches and other areas clean bearing in mind that tripadviser and videos go out globally about the rubbish especially on beaches which deters many people visiting thailand , at this bad time they can feel the hardship no tourism brings but they don`t see the benefits of cleaning all the shit up ? !!!
