When I stepped off the plane from Bangkok and arrived in Phuket, Thailand, I was still a little skeptical about the American TESOL Institute (ATI). These are the administrators of the course I am taking to become certified to teach English to speakers of other languages. Before I left, I had zero information on where I would teach, what age, or basically anything else about the course. I also found a few scary things online that lead me to believe I may be stepping into a huge scam or maybe even a ring of sex traders.

My good friend Michele whom I met while in Budapest met me in Bangkok late on Friday night. Since our biological clocks are still a little off, we woke up at about 6:30 am ready to start our Saturday. We planned on heading out to the Grande Palace first, a must see when in Bangkok. After an hour drive into the city with all the congestion and traffic we were ready for a free tour in English around 10 am. As soon as the taxis unloaded us, we went to purchase our tickets in order to enter the Palace. A nice (so we thought) Thai man approached us and asked where we are from, what we were doing in Thailand and spoke enough English to keep us intrigued for a few moments. Our new friend then explained to us that the Palace is only open to Thai nationals on Saturday mornings until noon.

Hey y'all! Thanks for visiting Travel on My Face! I am leaving for Thailand in approximately one week. I am getting down to the nitty gritty of packing and finalizing plans. I'm going to document my travels through stories, photos, and video on this blog so you can get in on a little piece of the action from your own computer. I hope to gain experience and inspiration that guides me into a project for a future career or perhaps leads me one-step closer to my own show on the Travel Channel (a girl can dream)! If you're feeling extra giving today, please "Like my face" on Facebook and "Follow my face" on Twitter! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy traveling on my face!
