Go ahead, move to a Scandinavian country. Regarding cold, it's overrated as a problem. As the temperature drops, you can always put on another layer of clothing and stay warm. But in a hot clime, there's only so much you can take off before you're roasting under the sun. Besides, the dramatic change in seasons is nice. You get very used to a rhythmic year of variations. And living in England you're used to the four seasons, although it never gets too hot or too cold. But if you go someplace tropical, the lack of variation in the weather can slowly drive you mad.
It's funny how you can seriously miss things that sound bad, like cold weather.
I agree--living in Southeast Asia has me excited to return to Canada and sit next to a roaring fire. The feeling of warming up is blissful, the feeling of trying to cool down is frustrating.
Advise as many folks as possible at the State Department of your next trip, post a bunch of blog entries about your plans, call your Senator to let him/her know you'll be taking lots of pictures and keeping detailed notes on your trip, and once everything is confirmed as "high visibility" go ahead and post your thoughts on the new site. Be sure to call a couple of CNN anchors to let them know about all the steps you've taken, and dare Thai officials to do a goddamned thing about your online activities once you get there. Worst case scenario: you get detained for a couple of days, get international exposure from human rights groups and major media outlets, and sell a book deal on the whole charade. I'd do it myself, but frankly I'm too busy with other pursuits.
I currently live in Thailand and would advise against these actions strongly. The Thai government is not at all concerned with their public image abroad. If they were concerned, would they let their airport get overrun shut down by people without even a weapon? Would they so publicly censor and detain people for breaking this "law"? They're more concerned with preserving their culture than stepping into this century.
