I am an English language teacher – now more or less retired – who lived and worked in different parts of Asia – east, west and south. My love of travel and foreign cultures was why I first became a teacher of English as a foreign language. It has taken me to many extraordinary places, some – sadly – no longer easy or safe to visit. I still travel as much as possible and derive huge pleasure from planning new adventures. I used to keep travel logs in small notebooks. Now I blog!
