We’re two high school teachers, Jared (left) and Danny (right) from outside Chicago, IL wandering halfway across the world to discover our life abroad. We’ve stumbled upon a love for travel! It freaks you out and makes you uncomfortable; what’s better than discovering who you are and what you’re capable of? As Thoreau said, life is what we make of it. We want to suck the marrow out of its bones!
Take a Look into Our Life Abroad
We love culture. We love people (well, I do; not so sure about him). Simply, we love our life abroad. We want to see how this changes our teaching and ourselves. What better way than to join a culture on the cusp between Eastern and Western ideas! (Heck, why not, I’ve always wanted to learn more about Confucianism!)
We’ve been teaching EFL to adults in South Korea since August 2016, and we just recently began writing curriculum for our school. This blog will document our experiences, opinions, and travels throughout Asia; to see a more comedic run-by of events, check out Danny’s twitter below.
