Ever since I had the opportunity to volunteer for a few weeks in a school in Jorhat, India, I’ve been plotting a way to teach abroad. This blog is about my journey to Debrecen, Hungary, where I will be teaching English in a Hungarian high school. Over the next year, I will share my thoughts and observations about teaching, travel, and life. (I’m not making any guarantees here, but statistically there is a good chance that one or two thoughts might even be profound!)
I am accompanied on my journey by my wonderful husband, Jesse, who is not a fan of blogging and will hopefully forgive me for mentioning him in my posts so frequently.
Sadly, the third member of my little family is not taking part in this journey. My cat Nessie will be staying behind in Kalamazoo with a friend. I will miss her dreadfully.
We will miss family and friends as well, but we need to seize the opportunity to go abroad while we can. Jesse just finished a master’s degree this spring and will begin a PhD program when we come back. I am still trying to decide what I want to do when I grow up, and maybe teaching in Hungary will give me some insight.
I don’t know what life will be like in Hungary or what I’ll do when we return, but that is what is so exciting! Life is an adventure.
