Postbox letter from Bangkok
When I started my second year here, all my friends and family told me I should just go home and that English teaching isn't really a career. I was having too much fun to take any notice of this unsolicited advice.
For those heading back to the UK or sending money home, it's all hail the mighty Baht!
I can’t wait to get back to England in two weeks time where I’ll have roughly 25% more in my pocket than when I traveled back in 2014. It really is a fantastic time to get paid in baht.
Postbox letter from Russell
Those of us that have been here some years all know how this country has changed in the past 5 years. And most of us with balls would say it’s not for the best.
What am I looking forward to most on my return home?
After a year in Thailand I am soon returning home to visit my family and friends. In a few weeks I will be hopping on a flight and making my way firstly to London Heathrow and then the more difficult part of the journey - juggling the tube, trains and buses to make my way to lovely, lovely Cornwall.
