I’m headed out for a new adventure. You may be thinking, ah she’s headed to Mexico. But this is not the case. Although I hope to get down there late next year, I’m headed in a more eastward direction with a whole lot of miles and ocean in between.
I’m going to Myanmar! A Buddhist country full of golden pagodas and palaces, lush rainforest, exotic spices and foods and beautiful, soft, gentle people.
I am going to teach: little people excited and wiggly, sponges of curiosity.
It has happened quickly (signed the contract yesterday, bought my air ticket last night) and now I leave on May 9th! Only 22 days until departure. I’ll be living in the vibrant city of Mandalay come Saturday, May 11th.
Thanks to a huge support of friends and family I am able to sub-let my duplex (thus saving me all the massive packing and moving I was going to have to do), my wonderful new sub-letter is going to take care of my precious cats and I am off to teach, explore, and breath once again. My heart and head need this.
I will be posting stories and photos on this site about my adventures over the next year. I hope you’ll enjoy, comment and engage.
I’m looking forward to a wonderful experience in a place I have yet to explore. Gretchen
