This blog was started in 2006 when I embarked on a new life adventure teaching English in China. It was a wonderful, enriching and enlightening experience. Many of you came on this journey with me.
For those of you who are searching for more meaning and satisfaction in your life and feel that teaching languages overseas might fit the bill, I enthusiastically encourage you to take up the challenge as I did nine years ago. You will never regret it. In fact you will probably say "Why didn't I do this years ago?"
I then began a journal of my journey home to Australia- the long way round! Unfortunately, only one of the many blogs about this trip has been published at this point and I'm not sure when they'll come to light. Many of them are almost ready, but don't hold your breath!!
After more than four years back home in Australia working in the area of language teaching to international students, I then took off on what I call an "oldie's gap year" to celebrate sixty fabulous years and to fulfill a 40 year dream to explore South America. After 10 fabulous months in South America (I will be back!), I then ventured for 3months to Europe to reconnect with old travel buddies & explore places old and new. Finally, I called in to Vietnam to visit friends living in Nha Trang and finished the trip exploring far northern Thailand. Best trip of my life!
Currently, my travel is somewhat tamer, but enjoyable never the less. For the last 18 months, I've been house-sitting around SE Queensland and trialling retirement- and I love it. Hoping to make a restart on the many blogs yet to be published (more than 90 of them) !!!
Many new places on my radar still to be visited as well. Myanmar was my target last year, now Cambodia/Laos is my target in November this year..............
Read on and enjoy!
