You are a teacher, not a tourist… So why limit yourself to the touristy destinations? Yes, you may initially start to panic when you get your teach abroad placement, google the destination, and find nothing about it online. Yet, you’ll quickly realize that going off-the-beaten-path, is perhaps the best way to spend your time living abroad. Teaching English abroad gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture, to find a second home, and to have a truly unique experience abroad. So while your friends are taking pics in front of the Eiffel Tower, you’ll be on an adventure all your own.
