From Thailand to Cambodia

It was time to say goodbye Thailand and hello Cambodia

The last two months of my life have been a whirlwind of changes, emotions and excitement. The end of the term also signaled the end of my contract with the language company I was employed with and the start of new adventures.


Far away

Postbox letter from James

OK Thai school directors, bridging teachers, managers and let's include the various shady hiring companies, you won and I now find myself in China.


Losing the smiles

Postbox letter from Sean

Things in Thailand changed, I noticed it right away. People weren't as nice as before.


Farewell Thailand

Postbox letter from Keith Evans

Let me say that for the seven years I have been here, the first five were excellent, but I have seen a drastic change for the worse over the past two years.


Thailand, you have lost another good teacher

Postbox letter from Mr. Russell Park

It strikes me that Thais wont be happy until the last "farang" as they call us leave this country. Thailand you have just lost a very good teacher and maybe another one very soon.


Lazy Sunday afternoon.... are you joking?

Postbox letter from Ian

I know why I am in Thailand and its not for the money. Before anyone gets on their high horse, this place can be a real bind as well, but as a rule while I'm trying to be overcharged, at least its done with a genuine smile


A land that time has thankfully made me forget

Postbox letter from Ian

For those of you who have not ventured back to the place of your roots, can I just say don't bother, you are far better off where you are. The UK is in a real sorry state.


It's life Jim, but not as we know it.

Postbox letter from Ian

Are we better off here in Thailand or back in our homeland?


Impressions of home

Observations on a country and culture I'd almost forgotten

I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly, polite and nice the people were. Maybe this was because I was primarily in smaller towns and rural areas, but even while in the airports in Chicago and Denver, it just seemed so easy to strike up conversations with the people I were interacting with.


My great escape

How are things working out in China?

Lack of inspiration this month made me decide to participate in ‘The Great Escape’ survey found elsewhere on this site. Here are my answers.
