My SE Asian rollercoaster ride

It’s been almost 3 months since I arrived on the island of Koh Chang, began my teacher training and put away my backpack- the very backpack that I have been living out of for 4 months prior to that, the backpack which holds pretty much everything I own, the backpack which (in fear of sounding…

Top 10 destinations-Asia
