Moving to own Apartment

We moved with Ronja to our own apartment, which is located in my cousin’s neighboring house. This will make everyday life easier for me during my practice as Ronja spends her days with my cousin – and yet we all get our own space and peace. My internship would also have arranged housing for my internship, but it wasn’t really an option for us as I was traveling with my daughter.

Our apartment is in S 1 service Apartment. Our apartment has one large room, bathroom and balcony. We don’t have a separate kitchen, because ordering food here is almost cheaper than making it yourself, and almost any kind of food you can be ordered to home. The apartment is just the right size for the two of us, and we have enough space to do our own thing in peace when it feels like it. The rent for the apartment is 5000 baht (about € 161) per month, plus a separate electricity bill according to consumption.

Asuntomme on S 1  service apartmentissa. Asunnossamme on yksi iso huone, kylpyhuone sekä parveke. Erillistä keittiötä meillä ei ole, koska ruuan tilaaminen täällä on melkeinpä halvempaa, kuin tehdä se itse, ja lähestulkoon minkälaista ruokaa tahansa saa kotiin kuljetettuna. Asunto on meille kahdelle juuri sopivan kokoinen, ja meillä on tarpeeksi tilaa tehdä omia juttujamme rauhassa, kun siltä tuntuu. Asunnon vuokra on 5000 bahtia (n. 161 €) kuukaudessa, jonka lisäksi tulee erillinen sähkölasku kulutuksen mukaan.
