Are you moving to the other side of the world? Considering a move to Asia for work? Or are you being dragged kicking and screaming to your spouses oversee's assignment for their career? This podcast shares the good, the bad and the ugly about the oversea's expat life. Veenesh Dubois will share what she has learned after living all over Asia and the USA since 2015.
Veenesh Dubois - Host - My Story
Since launching this Podcast in April of 2021, I've had an incredible opportunity to talk to many expats from around the world and learn about their experiences. They've shared their personal journeys about moving to a different country for a job. How they juggle family while settling into a new home.
I have gotten lots of feedback from my listeners and all have been positive. But, people have asked me time and again what my story is. So, for the next four episodes, I will be discussing my move abroad and all the challenges and excitement that brought me.

Ken Sandulak - From Drug Abuse to Addiction councillor.
Ken Sandulak’s childhood had a rocky start that led to drug abuse, quitting high school, issues with family and ultimately being homeless on the streets of Vancouver. After being arrested, doing time and struggling he eventually got the help he needed at a treatment center called the “Last Door.” In this program, Ken learned how to control his compulsions and support other recovering addicts. Eventually, Ken became a councillor in a drug and alcohol treatment facility in Vancouver and later in beautiful Chiang Mai, Thailand where he lives today.
Ken, along with the rest of the world is now waiting out the end of the Covid pandemic, so he can get back to helping people sort out their lives and recover from addiction. Please note that some of the subject matter may be hard to listen to for someone living with an addiction. If you need help please reach out to your family, friends or a doctor.
Addiction comes in many forms and there is help out there, you are not alone.
