As someone who grew up in a landlocked state nearly smack in the middle of the U.S., traveling to another state was normal. But going to another country? Too far and too expensive. In fact, while I've traveled all over the U.S., moving to Korea was the first time I'd ever left my home country. Now that I'm here, the novelty of being able to easily country-hop is still so amazing to me. I can't even count the hours I've spent planning the trips I'll be taking someday. Lucky for you, in all of my planning, I've amassed a huge amount of resources. So get ready to bookmark websites, because it's about to get real with a whole lot of information.

One of the best things about teaching English in Korea is the ability to travel during your vacations, weekend breaks, or when your contract finishes. I usually spend my weekends traveling around Korea and then use my vacation time for bigger trips outside of Korea. Last year, I went to Taiwan for a week and absolutely loved it. Even though I loved Taiwan, for my next vacation, I knew that I wanted to head to a different part of Asia and I had my sights set on Southeast Asia. Thus, I began looking at flights to Southeast Asia, found cheap tickets to Vietnam, and decided that is where I am going. I knew I was going to have a good time, I just had no idea it was going to be this good.
