A year teaching English in Asia, a year au-pairing in Europe or a year running away to join the circus. A few of the things that are pretty common to do if you need a little adventure in your life but also enjoy being able to afford food. Something new…
With a few domestic flights coming up it got me thinking! We all pretend to know everything about anything but secretly only a few of us really do! I know all the requirements for an international flight. What time to be there, what’s going to get you kicked off the plane or what airline has the best (ish) food! Domestic flights on the other hand, I shamefully had to google a few things just to make 100% sure!
I am sure that we can all comfortable say we know someone who is teaching English in Asia. If not, then you know some who just came back or you need to get out more!
You just graduated, have no idea what lies ahead and not 100% ready to dive into anything yet. Maybe you have a full time job that just isn’t making your heart skip a beat anymore. Maybe you love teaching, love the English language and want to share that with others or maybe there is no reason, you just want to because you can. Whatever your reason is, it’s a great one. The question is why does everyone else make it look so damn easy? What do they know that you don’t? How do you go about looking for a job, what are the things you should know, what type of pay you should expect!
The more quiz nights and travelling I do, the more I realise how little I know about the world! 196 countries out there and I most probably couldn’t name half of them. I decided we needed to know more, promote a few countries that never get to be on bucket lists! I have searched the deep dark corners of the internet and found 5 countries that seriously need some extra credit!
This is the question you are faced with when deciding on your holiday strategy. Do you embrace your inner traveller and plan your own trip or do you join a tour that has everything planned, all you need to do is arrive?
I would normally lean more to tours because they have simply never let me down but I have finally experienced both sides of the spectrum and it is a tough decision! I have summed it up into 5 main elements that you would be considering when deciding!
