Some call me Paf, others call me Foua. I usually introduce myself as Pafoua-pronounced a little bit like Pa-Fwuh or Ba-fwah depending on who I’m speaking with. It’s complicated.
How I Caught the Travel Bug
In 2012, I was a college graduate with a teaching license and minimal job options so I did the next best thing and moved back in with my parents. During the two years in my hometown, I was looking for anything that was more adult than living with my parents.
I had just completed my student teaching abroad in Thailand and knew that being overseas was something I wanted to continue doing.
So I started applying for jobs and received an offer to China. I jumped at the position and went off on my 2nd international trip to teach English abroad.
In making new lifelong friends, I found unique traditions, created beautiful memories, and continued adding stamps to my passport.
I hope you can do the same here!
