Maeklong Railway Market

On one of the days that we were let out early, Christina and I hopped on the ferry near the fish market and began our journey to Samut Songkhram. From the Mahachai Pier, we took a ferry to Tha Chalom Pier. From Tha Chalom, we made our way to the Ban Laem train stop. ItContinue reading “Maeklong Railway Market”

Wat Sam Phran

The 17 story dragon temple is in Amphoe Sam Phran in Nakhon Pathom Province. It is located north of Samut Sakhon so it was only a few hundred Baht and an hour-ish Grab ride away from us. It’s also about 26 miles (~41km) from Bangkok. On a hot November Sunday, we made our way there.Continue reading “Wat Sam Phran”

Teaching in Chaiyaphum

There were 6 other foreign teachers at Anuban Chaiyaphum. The first day of school, one of them came and picked me up. So sweet. My first day walking home from school I got lost (shocker).

Our friend Jules lived in the south soContinue reading “Khao Yai”

The long 5 day weekend started off in the capital on the 27th of December. Christina and I took a train from Mahachai to Bangkok.Continue reading “New Year’s Vacay 2019”

The Tremendous Thailand

It’s funny because I didn’t even plan on going to Thailand until three months prior to leaving, but yet it was the best (almost) year of my life. I also never thought I’d ever want to teach, yet here I am. Choosing Thailand was like most of the other decisions that I’ve made in myContinue reading “The Tremendous Thailand”
