There are very few places in life that I have called home. Liverpool has and always will be my home city, and I of course counted Lancaster, my University town, as a home for 3 years. Neither of these could have prepared me for my time in Thailand, and I’m glad that the experience was so different. I have made some awesome friends, seen some amazing places, and had some fantastic times that have left me looking back with fond memories, and looking forward with high expectations, and an even higher benchmark.

For the last few months, I’ve lived in a small Thai city called Roi-Et. Located in central Issan, northeastern Thailand, it’s quiet, authentic, and has provided us with some awesome memories and experiences. To try and capture everything that has happened and everyone I’ve met in one post is going to be, well, impossible, but I can’t leave here without giving it a go!! Continue reading “It’s been awesome Roi-Et”
Today is my last day at Anuban Piroj. I can’t believe I have taught here for a whole semester!! I am going to do an entire post saying farewell to Roi-Et, but I wanted to document today, and my time here, with it’s own post.
I was treated to the graduation of my Kindergarten 3 class today. What a way to spend my last day. All of my Kindergarten 3 students passed their little exams, and robed up to graduate from Kindergarten to Prathom. Yes, you read that right, I said robed up. I was definitely one of the cutest things I have ever seen! Continue reading “The Most Adorable Graduation”
I love Thailand, I really do. The weather is great, the people are lovely, the country is beautiful. There is a way of life here that I haven’t ever experienced before and that I will miss hugely when I leave.
That said, I won’t miss the bureaucracy, and the instability with my visa situation one bit. Continue reading “The Terror of the Visa Run: The Visa Run Strikes Back”
A few weeks ago I posted about the horrible experience that was going a visa-run to Laos. 30 days after this, there was still no sign of our non-immigrant B visa paperwork, and so we prepared for the unpleasant journey all over again. Continue reading “The Terror of the Visa Run – The Return of the Terrible Trip”
So little is properly happening here that is exciting that I don’t feel the need to post as often about my daily/weekly activities. That said, I don’t feel as good about my blog when I don’t post as often, it’s a bit lose-lose really. It’s hard to believe that in a month, we will no longer be teacher, we’ll no longer be in Roi-Et, we’ll be back travelling again. Continue reading “In a months time…”
As another Friday rolls around and another week comes to an end, I’ve realised, I’ve almost finished in Roi-Et. It’s been great to meet lots of new people, experience new cultures and jobs, and to see new places, I absolutely cannot believe that time has gone this fast and that I have lived here for 3 months.
