For six wonderful months, I combined backpacking with teaching English in Thailand – an enchanting country I had longed to explore having read about its distinct culture, fascinating history, ancient traditions and abundance of natural beauty.

To anyone who is desperate to travel but strapped for cash, I recommend you give TEFL teaching a go. It is a great opportunity to work and save money while getting to know the country and its people from the inside, as a worker and not simply a tourist. And for anyone planning to visit Thailand: smile a lot, try everything, and remember when things don’t go as planned – ‘mai pen rai!’
