It’s been a long while since I’ve last written a post. I’ll attribute this to a variety of reasons, but these reasons can all be summed up in one word: teaching. Teaching kicks my butt everyday. Each day it brings forth a new series of challenges that make it interesting and special. On days when I’m particularly… Read More Kringle in Kuwait
The past three weeks have been spent existing in a consistent state of mild to medium stress, where I have been working on a “to-do” list about 50 items long that never seems to get any smaller. From rolling all the petty cash from piggy banks I still have, to figuring out bigger, more adult… Read More Bet You Can’t [Ku]WAIT to Read This!
Prague is as beautiful as it is… strange. By day, it’s a city with staggering beauty. With every twist and turn you’ll see stunning architecture that dates back to the Baroque and Rococo periods. Pastel colours adorn buildings to create a fairytale setting, and if you seek a higher viewpoint, you’ll find yourself gazing at hundreds… Read More CZECH out this Post!!
Well, with nine days spent in London, and five days in Prague, I’ve officially wrapped up my trip to Europe. It was a phenomenal trip full of adventure, food, friends, and good people. I really enjoyed London. It’s a city that has constant energy. It’s clean, well kept, efficient, and easy to travel. It’s also… Read More My Journey Across the Pond
Being a fairly easy-going, go-with-the-flow kind of traveller, I have never really experienced any kind of intense culture shock [yet]. For the most part, I’m generally able to brush things off my shoulders and not give worry to what we can’t control. I was joking about this with Mel the other night, and we both… Read More The Culture Shock I Didn’t Think I’d Get
One of the many great things about travelling with Kayla and Mel is the fact that they too like to try adventurous things, one of which, is food. Coming to Southeast Asia, I knew I would be encountering some very diverse food options, and I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. On this particular… Read More How To Eat [Alive] Worms, in ‘Nam
Vietnam has been a whirlwind of a trip and there are so many things I want to write about. Finding the right way to start is proving very difficult, so I think, in the true fashion of this trip, I’m just going to jump right into something and figure out the rest of it later. I’ll… Read More Vietnam: Most Memorable Moments
Wow. What a whirlwind of a weekend. As of Saturday January 30, 2016, I officially have a job teaching high school English in Kuwait! I am SO excited and can’t wait for the new adventures to come! The Teachers’ Overseas Recruitment Fair was one hell of a weekend. It’s probably fair to say that it was… Read More OMG I’m Moving to Kuwait
While this post comes very belatedly (and let’s ignore the fact that I’m combining both Friday and Saturday in one post), I figured I’d write about the end to this vacation, and talk about the direction of the blog. Our Friday in Key West was a very relaxed and very lazy day. We had nothing… Read More The End of Our Key West Vacation… and More!
Today started bright and early, as we had a full day planned with a company called Sebago, where we were to enjoy a full day of boating and water sports. While breakfast was provided on the boat, I always wake up hungry, so I had a small bowl of cereal before we left to check… Read More Watersport Wednesday in Key West
