If you HAD to leave Thailand (law, psycho stalker, lying Thai out to get you) for whatever reason, but wanted to continue to teach or at least stay in the EFL/ESL field, where would you move to? Stay in Asia, try the S.Amer. trail, ME, Africa?
I think if I was forced to leave, I'd probably want to try something totally different, yet still Asian in a sense. I've heard of volunteer EFL positions in Nepal that sound intriguing, and a few paying ones in Katmandu. Nepal for me. The mountains, (of course), the crisp air (outside the city), pressing culture, and growth there pull me.
- money could or could not be an issue in this scenario.
I've been thinking about Japan for some time. The girls, the history, the culture, the blowfish, it's got it all. Did I mention the girls?
Other than that, somewhere in Latin America would be good, but not Mexico at the moment, which is a pity, I love the food. Brazil loses points because they speak Portugese which would not be overly useful to learn; Cuba fascinates me, but her political landscape is probably a bit uncertain.
Guess I'll stick to Asia, which means Thailand or Japan for me.

Only northern England and back to Canada in my cards. I'm about done with "Asia'.
^ Why Northern? Or have you been down South?
Riddle me this brother can you handle it
Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it
Equinox symmetry and the balance is right
Smokin' and drinkin' on a Tuesday night
It's not how you play the game it's how you win it
I cheat and steal and sin and I'm a cynic
Ideally Japan, realistically China.
