First stop, Thailand

by sarahthevagabond

To start off the round our world adventure of a lifetime, we decided to fully immerse ourselves into a culture so opposite to our own, and Teach English abroad.
Thailand’s English teaching program is becoming bigger and bigger as each year passes by, as Thailand becomes more developed and Westernized. So, for first time teachers abroad, Thailand seemed perfect. Why Thailand?
We have been here before, and enjoyed it a lot. The people are friendly, the food is great, the beaches are beautiful. Someone said to me that Thailand is an extremely hedonistic place. I can agree with this on certain levels – if you follow the tourist trail, you will be in heaven – everything is cheap, everything is available, everyone speaks English.

Though, going somewhere on holiday, or even just traveling long term is a totally different story to actually living there.
