"Y" is for Yemen

I am fascinated with culture. I love visiting new places, eating new foods, and learning new languages. This is part of the reason I chose my college major of teaching English. I want to see the entire world.

I have a special love for Southeast Asia. I would love to get a job in that part of the world when I graduate. China, Japan, Singapore, Indonesia, Brunei, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Burma, etc. I love that part of the world.

When I have gotten to travel, I've done my best to avoid the tourist areas. If possible, I like to stay with a local, eat what they eat and go to the places that they go. It's the way of life I am interested in more than the architecture and attractions.

Once I have my degree, whether I end up in Yemen (there's your 'Y'), Zaire, or Burkina Faso, I can't wait to see where I end up.


Happily participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. For the entire month of April, over 1,600 bloggers are working their way through the alphabet. One letter every day but Sundays for a total of 26 days.

  2. I'm not how I'd feel about going to Yemen - the social and political unrest is a bit much for my tastes, but the idea of traveling is one I can definitely get behind. I'm hoping, one day before I am too old to spend a year backpacking through Europe.

    1. There is no country that I would NOT want to see. I definitely have my favorites list, but I'll go anywhere.

  5. Mrs. C. and I are also interested in this part of the world. In February we're heading to Thailand. Can't wait.

    1. I was offered a job in Thailand years ago. I always wonder if I should have taken it.

  6. I can't wait to see what happens when you graduate :)

    I have very recently been contacted by the people I worked with in Honduras, and asked to consider moving back there. It threw me for a loop, because it was not on my radar whatsoever, but I really feel that I have to give it at least some consideration. Part of me is gung ho, let's go, but another part of me looks at practicalities, and doesn't know that it will work for me right now. I've have lots of praying and thinking to do!

  7. I'm anxious to see where you'll end up when you graduate. The more you talk about it, the more I wonder what will happen and where you'll be in a few years.

  9. I've only heard the name and I know nothing about the culture. I guess I'm not as worldly as I should be.

    1. I don't know anything about it either. I would love to drop in and learn.
