I'm Ali. 25. And these are my travelling tales. Mixed in with a bit of music and a lot of photographs for good measure.
October 2011: First stop Thailand; teaching in primary schools for the majority of the year.
Then onto Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia & Singapore.
October 2012: Sydney, Australia. Lived and worked for 11 months saving every penny to escape back to Asia. Finally got to travel up the East Coast before my visa ran out!
October 2013: Delhi, India. Volunteered at Salaam Balaak Trust teaching street children for two months. Travelled India top to toe and toe to top visiting the most amazing places, paradises and holy sites in the world and absolutely fell in love with the country.
In between that time I popped over to Sri Lanka and Nepal but India always dragged me back for more.
Left my beloved India in May 2014 and flew to Thailand to end my mammoth trip where it all began.
Two years and eight months of an absolute whirlwind adventure, I flew back home to UK soil on the 25th May.
So my middle school students are going to be fun. Korean co-teacher comes up to me and asks me very sternly why I said ‘shit face’ in my last lesson. I obviously respond telling her I’d never swear in front of children and would never say that word…The little shits.
