Bangkok

Bangkok

Bangkok: a city with much expectation, which should of been its downfall. I made that mistake with Bali, such high hopes for somewhere which had been given so much hype as a paradise. Pegged as a highlight before my arrival, only to be thoroughly disappointed by the bleak mark of the tourist trade. Hordes of…

Being an English Teacher: Toddlers Vs Teens

Being an English Teacher: Toddlers Vs Teens

Certainly, I’m not your typical primary or high-school teacher in more ways than one. The biggest difference is rather than exclusively teaching children of one certain age, I teach a broad spectrum. My students range from attitude filled 12-year-old teens to tiny 3-year-old toddlers. The methods and persona used to teach these varying ages of…

The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), Korea

The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone), Korea

Backpacking follows a predictable set of events; first follow the well-beaten tracks, before seeking a unique adventure not many get to see. The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) marks the fragile divide between the borders of both Korean countries. The heavily guarded separation between the two keeps the fragile illusion of peace while on the edge of…

Seoul

Seoul

Seoul; the capital of South Korea, kimchee and K-pop. This city has lived up to its big name as a booming 24-7 city nestled beside the madness of its eccentric neighbour. Vibes of historical Chinese influence with waves of modern Japanese technology, this city stands out as a major Asian capital.   The city is…

Becoming an English Teacher

Becoming an English Teacher

  Planning too far into the future appears to be pointless. Considering that over a 2 years period my life-ambition changed from becoming a doctor to becoming a backpacker. This transition was a great success, before becoming broke after 3 short months. The curious thought of becoming a teacher did cross my mind at some…

Life in China

Life in China

It’s fair to say that that I had no real idea what to expect of life in China. All I really had to go off were a few misinformed suggestions, second-hand stories and inaccurate stereotypes. However, nothing compares to dropping yourself there and seeing for yourself what the country’s about. Now that the initial dust…

Australia – Top 10 Highlights

Australia – Top 10 Highlights

I covered a hell of a lot of ground in my time in Australia; from the entire East Coast, the agonisingly long bus-ride to the red centre and back out all the way to the Northern tip. This incredible country provides a hell of a lot of bucket list moments, backpackers flock here for a…

How will I Survive in China?

How will I Survive in China?

“How are you going to survive in China? They don’t speak English! What are you going to eat? It’s going to be cheap there! You can’t go on facebook?! What if World War III breaks out!?!?”. I’ve heard it all as soon as I told people that’s where I’d be venturing off to next. To…

Beijing or Shanghai?

Beijing or Shanghai?

With the offer accepted and the contract signed for the spectacular opportunity of being able to live and work in China, I find myself with a pleasant problem. The company I applied for has schools in multiple cities, so I didn’t know where they’d put me. Turns out they’re leaving the decision up to me;…
