23/11/2014- I left South East Asia after almost 18 months of teaching in Thailand, and travelling around its neighbouring countries.
I did a lot; I saw a lot.
If you get the chance, just do it!
My main tip to people who are thinking about moving to Thailand and teaching is not to believe a lot of the negative experiences written online about it. Sure it isn’t perfect, but life isn’t, is it? The majority of people you meet have an avalanche of pros that outweigh their cons. And just remember, a lot depends on the type of person you are.
My experience inspired me to teach and travel my way around the world (hence this site and its title), which is what I have been doing since I left. It’s hard to believe that as I write this I have been in Korea for almost 6 months already.
