Diary of a whimpy camper- Khao Yai

A day in the life of a TEFL teacher

  Today is my Friday (I know it’s only Thursday), but it’s the King’s birthday tomorrow so we have the day off and we’re heading to Khao Yai National Park to do some camping over the bank holiday weekend. This week marks my 11th week of teaching, meaning I’m over the half way mark now…

Who let the dogs out in Ayyutthaya?

This weekend I had planned to have a quiet, boring one where I spend little money, don’t really leave my apartment, catch up on sleep, run errands and save up for Pattaya next weekend…those who know me know that I can’t do boring or relaxing. So we decided to spend a couple of days in…
