TRYING TO BE CALM AND ORGANISED

Posted on 28 August 2016 by Izzie

DAY 0 I like to think that I am fairly organised person and almost go nowhere without my post-it notes and checklists. However, if there is one thing I will […]

ON MY WAY.

Posted on 24 August 2016 by Izzie

So I'm finally embarking on something that I've always wanted to do! I'm gonna be living in Paris for a whole year... Well for the "location police" 40 minutes outside […]

Science Fair

Posted on 18 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

Today we went to the science fair at Ubon Ratchathani University. We left at around 9.30 and travelled on the school bus with some of my G.12 students. I don’t […]

My First Sick Day

Posted on 16 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

So today I had my G.10 class that I was dreading first thing at 8.30am. It sounds silly to say that I wasn’t looking forward to a class, but it’s […]

A Tough Day

A Tough Day

Posted on 15 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

So today was a difficult day, looking back I think it was mostly my doing though. I had three lessons today and I was still a bit tired from the […]

Nakhonchai Air

Posted on 14 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

We were up at 7am this morning and rushed out by 7.30am (I had just about enough time to clean my teeth) so that Aum could get us on a […]

Nakhon Sawan

Posted on 13 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

So we thought we had until at least 8am to get ready to go to the waterfall. But would it really be Thailand without surprises? Instead Aum woke us up […]

To Aum’s

Posted on 12 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

Today I managed to sleep past 8am. It was great. I packed and updated my blog in the morning before we left. I also, however found out that there had […]

Mother’s Day

Posted on 11 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

Today we had the day of school to hold a ceremony to celebrate mother’s day. If you’re confused about why mothers' day is in August, it is because in Thailand […]

Science!

Posted on 9 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

So today marks about three weeks until we leave for Bangkok. Even though we’re six weeks through the placement, it doesn’t mean that I am any more ready for each […]

Back to Ubon Ratchathai

Posted on 7 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

This was our one sleep-in today, and somehow my body woke me up at 8am. Which is a sleep-in compared to 6.30am, but still! I would have preferred to sleep […]

Finally in Khon Kaen

Posted on 6 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

We woke up at 7am and got ready in half an hour. We left the hotel at 7.40am and walked to the bus station which was only a five-minute walk […]

Leaving for Khon Kaen

Posted on 5 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

I was back to my normal classes today. As much as the younger years are adorable and it was really nice having a Thai speaker leading the lesson, I did […]

Ben-less

Posted on 4 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

So today I went from being Aum-less to being Ben-less as well. Our mentor Ben was unfortunately ill today and therefore couldn’t help to translate my lessons. I did however […]

Primary School

Posted on 1 August 2016 by Samantha Edgson

Today marks the official half way through point of the teaching programme. Doesn’t mean we are more adapted to teaching or to the environment. Unfortunately after a weekend of little […]
