SOCIAL MEDIA & TRAVEL BLOGS
How can you afford to travel?
We’ve earned money teaching English in South Korea and we’ve also done freelance travel writing. In addition we earn money through our travel blogs http://nomadicsamuel.com and http://thatbackpacker.com
What’s it like teaching English in Korea?
Overall, it was a a great experience. This is where we met each other in person after knowing one another online through our travel blogs. It was trial be error as we were just thrown into the Korean classroom without any on the job training. However, we got the handle of it quickly and as long as you enjoying teaching children it is something we can recommend to try.
You eat a lot of street food. Have you ever had food poisoning?
Indeed, we have! Personally, I’ve been sick in India, Thailand, Malaysia, Bolivia and Cuba just to name a few places. Oddly enough, we’ve never got sick from eating street food. It has always been from food we got at a restaurant. As a common sense guide, we recommend you eat at street food stalls where the vendor is cooking with high levels of hygiene and where it is busy with lots of locals lined up waiting to be served.
Do you ever get tired of traveling? What are some cities where you could see yourself settling down? What are your favorite travel destinations?
We’ve experienced burning out on the road several times. When we get sick of travel we’ve settled down in Chiang Mai and Berlin for a while. Some of our favorite countries include Jordan, Germany, Finland, Vietnam, Turkey and India.
How did you two meet?
We knew each other through our travel sites, met in person in Korea while teaching English, traveled the world together and recently got married this summer.
What is your biggest travel mishap?
We’re constantly screwing up on the road; however, our biggest mishap by far was having our train derail en route from Bangkok to Chiang Mia while living in Thailand. Other than that we’ve had our shorts split in half, lost our wallets and many other kinds of things.
Please let us know if you have any more questions for us! Anything at all. It can be related to travel, life or just a comment about how weird we are 😉
