As of today, it's official on all fronts and I can announce it to the world. (or at least to the few of you who read my random posts!) Come October I will be heading off to Thailand to teach English for at least 6 months. It's a decision that has been in the works for several years though the final idea came about rather accidentally. I'm both terrified and thrilled to do something a little more meaningful and a whole lot more adventurous with my life. I still haven't decided what to be when I grow up but maybe a bit of time spent in a place that looks a bit like paradise will help me sort things out!
I'm sad to be leaving the DC area after 7 years and have a few more local adventures planned to cram into the time I have left but I'm also looking forward to spending a bit of time with my family before heading around the world. It's crazy to think what the next few months might bring but I intend to keep you, my three faithful readers, abreast of it all. Never you fear!
And to reciprocate, if any of you out there have been to Thailand or the surrounding areas I'd love to hear about it. What were your favorite moments? Where do I need to be sure to visit? Any tips you'd like to pass on? Anyone who's lived abroad, anywhere? I'll take any advice you can give me!
