Thanks for joining us for our September issue—our two-year anniversary!
As I mentioned in the May issue, we're teaming up with community groups. I'd like to thank members of the British Club, ANZWG, Jabulani, and the BWG, who are all now receiving home delivery of Acclimate as part of their membership. We're delighted to be working with you and hope you'll enjoy seeing your groups' events listed in the new community calendar in this issue. Distribution has been a challenge for us since the first issue of Acclimate back in 2008, and I'm excited about this new way of reaching you—our readers—and working with our community's groups at the same time. We'd love to welcome more groups to the fold, so if you belong to a club whose members would enjoy receiving Acclimate at home, we'd love to chat with your leadership team.
I always think of this time of year as a time for starting over and trying new things. It's back-to-school time, and it's also the traditional time of year for expats to be starting new assignments. In that spirit, we're bringing you several stories to help you get your year started right. Even if you've been here for awhile, perhaps you'll find inspiration for starting a new project or overcoming an obstacle that's been keeping you from achieving your goals.
New to Bangkok or not, you'll surely find helpful information in the newly released 18th edition of the Bangkok Guide. Often called the "Bangkok Bible," this book contains even more great information than its predecessors. We're glad to be featuring it in this issue.
You'll find many more stories inside, including a follow-up with some of our memorable Inspiring Women from the past two years, as well as two new women whose lives and accomplishments are sure to inspire. Ann is back with timely advice about coping with emergencies, and Birgit will tempt your palate with three of her top restaurant picks for enjoying the slightly cooler weather. Is your child thinking about getting involved in modeling? Take a look at our story first to make sure you're both prepared.
I've had so much fun creating and sharing Acclimate with you over these two years. Your stories and comments inspire me, and I'm grateful for your support and enthusiasm. We want to continue to bring you inspiring stories, address issues that interest you, and answer your burning questions, so please drop me a line at tracey[at]acclimatemagazine.com and share your thoughts and feedback.
Thanks for reading,
