Hello and welcome! My name is Nicole, and my husband Jacob and I have sold most of our belongs; moved out of our townhouse in Boston, MA; and left the U.S. with a one-way ticket to Thailand.
We plan to experience a new way of life and new cultures while teaching English (and science and math), traveling in Asia, and living and working in Thailand.
I am also a Project Coordinator for a public health research study that develops and tests interventions to help improve adherence to infant safe sleep and breastfeeding recommendations in the United States. I am very lucky that I can continue this work from abroad!
This blog is for family and friends who want to keep up with our experiences as we begin our new lives as ESL teachers, and figure out all of the interesting things there is to know about living in Thailand. I also hope this blog can be useful to others who will be visiting Thailand, taking a TEFL course, or teaching ESL abroad. I may also occasionally blog about other things of interest to me, and hopefully to you (mostly public health, human rights, running, dance, fitness, etc.).
Please check back soon so you can always stay up to date–and don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
