Now is the time to go abroad!!
Sorry for the very long break between blog posts. I've been away for 5 weeks on a business trip to Asia and haven't had time to write anything. Speaking of being away, for anyone contemplating teaching abroad or just traveling in general....Now is the time to go!!!
Being away (as always) has once again shown me how awesome travel really is. For me, I never quite feel as ALIVE as I do when I'm visiting somewhere new. This year's business trip featured stops in Japan, China, Thailand, and Vietnam...all hot spots for Teaching English. I had the chance to visit a few places I hadn't been before, meet some amazing people and experience 4 distinct cultures along the way. It was a long trip, visiting 10 cities in 5 weeks, but also so rewarding personally and professionally.
If you're thinking about going abroad to teach, but are scared of the unknowns that exist in such a decision, I strongly encourage you to 'embrace the fear.' Travel and living abroad presents so many opportunities for personal growth, as well as chance to learn so much about the world. If you're thinking about going to China, Japan, Thailand or Vietnam, please check out the blogs entries below and if you have any questions at all about these options leave a comment below or at my Google+ page
PS. I promise to post more entries on Teaching Abroad regularly now that I'm back
