Now that midterms have finished and I'm finally into a routine here, I figure now is a good time to share my thoughts and experiences on being a TEFL teacher in Thailand. It certainly has been an incredible experience thus far, but it has both ups and downs.
Tat Mok National Park is a gorgeous park located in the mountains just outside of Muang Phetchabun, in Phetchabun Province. The park is a sprawling 290 sq/km (or 110 sq/m) of rugged mountains, waterfalls, streams, and stunning natural beauty. Recently some friends and myself made the drive up through the mountains to do some hiking and to see the waterfalls!
Hello! It's been a while since my last post, which is due to my computer breaking and a fairly lengthy repair process. Since I've last posted I've done quite a bit; I've explored Phetchabun, been to Laos, and of course continued to teach! I'll share those stories in the coming weeks, but first I'd like to share how things are going and what is new in my world.
I still think of Louisville as home, but for the next 5 months (at least) I will be living in a wonderful little Thai town known as Mueang Phetchabun.
Just a bit outside the city of Chiang Mai is a mountain known as Doi Suthep. This mountain is home to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, which is one of the most sacred sites in Thailand dating back to the 14th century. It also features numerous hill tribe villages and stunning natural beauty.
Hello, I'm Alec. I'm a musician and designer who recently got tired of my routine at home. I decided to pack up and travel the world while I can! Join me as I travel and share my experiences and tips along the way. I hope that by sharing my experiences I can help others who may find themselves in similar situations!
