November, 2017 – February, 2018 – Weekends in Bangkok

The weekdays were for teaching, and the weekends were for jumping on the Sky-Train and ending up some place more surreal than the last…

November, 2017 – River Kwai & Erawan Falls, Kanchanaburi

The first trip I took after leaving the island and starting teaching was one to Kanchanaburi. This small town is about 2 hours from where I live, and getting back to being surrounded by nature was a much needed break from city life. The first day we took a bus from Kanchanaburi to Erawan National Park to swim in some waterfalls, and as a bonus got a surprise free skin treatment from the hungry fish swimming with us. On the second day we cycled to the world famous bridge over River Kwai, and had dinner right on the river.

October, 2017 – Teacher Training on Koh Chang

In October I lived on the island of Koh Chang with 20 other British and American trainee teachers. We spent 3 weeks training in an open-air classroom on the seafront to become qualified ESL teachers. We lived in secluded wooden huts right on the waters edge, and had to walk 30 minutes along the beach to get to the one street of restaurants and shops. So all in all, not the worst study environment I’ve been in…
