This year’s travel will be taking on a whole new dimension for me. I’ll be selling everything off, packing the rest in boxes, filling two suitcases, and moving to Vietnam.
The plan is to complete my TESL certification in Ho Chi Minh Vietnam and work a six month teaching contract there. If I love it (both the work and the location) then I stay, making Vietnam my new jumping-off point for travel. If the vocation is a fit but I’m less enthused by the local scene I can take my certification and experience almost anywhere in the world. And if I hate teaching then it’s back to the drawing board in finding a lifestyle that accommodates my wanderlust…
I’ve really got my fingers crossed that teaching in Vietnam is a fit.
- The jobs pay decent money (which I need for my student loan payments back home…)
- The cost of living is wonderfully low in ‘nam
- Vietnam is also located in an area that makes visits/flights to some of my dream destinations within easy reach. i.e. Japan, Australia, India.
I’ll be keeping you updated as my departure date gets closer…
