    Thank you for including me in your travel tuesday feature (and I apologise for not thanking you sooner!)

    I’ll be settling into a steady posting rhythm from Jan1 – just trying to get plenty of content out there before I’m put on a time constraint by travelling!

    1. Happy to include you. It is difficult to keep a strict posting routine from the road – there are just too many unknowns to take into account

      Hi Chris, I’m resizing all our photos so I assume that’s why you got a very delayed ping. We are not doing this feature anymore but if it makes a comeback I’ll bare you in mind. How about answering some questions or providing some tips on teaching in Korea?
