Teaching English in South Korea: An Interview with Travis

For the cash-strapped traveller, one of the best ways to see the world without going into extreme debt is by finding work overseas. Not only does it ease the financial burden of travel, it also allows a first-hand glimpse into daily life in a foreign context.

Travis is one such cash-strapped traveller. He is spending a year in South Korea, teaching English to a group of eleven and twelve year-old students and sharing his (often comical) observations of Korean culture on his blog.

The Daily Transit

Many passionate travellers remember their first time on the road with fondness.

Whether it's the immersion in a foreign culture or language, the chance to step out on your own, or simply the enlightenment that comes with experiencing a place you're unfamiliar with, that first trip is a profound moment in the lives of travellers.

For Ben Hancock, that first trip came a few years ago, when he headed off to Seoul, South Korea, to study for a year. This initial plunge was enough to inspire him with a deep passion for travelling. Whether he's on the road or not, he uses his blog, The Daily Transit, to share his reflection, essays, poetry and narratives on daily journeys.

    • A Girl and Her Thumb

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

    • Kiwi Blog Bus

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
