White Guy In Thailand

Hey everyone! As you may deduce from my blog title, I am a white guy. I'm originally from California, but beyond than that, I am a traveler, eager to see all corners of the globe, curious to see how the rest of the world lives. Change can be both exciting and terrifying. But like my Grandpa said, "Nobody grows within their comfort zone." This year, I'll write about my adventures, impressions, successes, and challenges of living and teaching in S.E. Asia. I'll be brutally honest (sometimes to a fault), and I can't wait to share my experience.
