I am 30 year old guy from south wales. I love Python and Palin. I am influenced by Michael quite a lot. I have travelled quite a bit in my late teens, mainly round europe and Canada. I've not done travelling for about 10 years. I hope that will change soon, as my employment/career is not going anywhere fast and I can't afford nor do I want to do a week or two holiday to the places I would like. I was hoping to do a volunteering jaunt in africa, but have decided to do a TEFL in 09, and I plan on teaching english in China or India...I would like China as that's my favorite episode on Full Circle, the River Yangtze trip. Although some of it is all dams now, or will be by then. Anyway, I would hope to be able to do this for a few years, going to different places around the world, helping kids learn english. Although I have to learn to speak it properly myself!! haha.

Alright guys? How are you doing? I haven't looked into where exactly I'm going to go yet. Some places are very different form one another. But there are area I'm more swayed to. Although, ultimately, it depends where the placements/openings are.
Are you planning any trips yourselves?

No BIG travel plans for me this year. Makes me sad , but just don't have the do re mi to do a big trip. Going places I can reach that don't really require flights.
