Teaching is said to be the greatest act of optimism. Traveling compounded with the beautiful act of volunteering as a teacher gives an amazing opportunity for everyone filled with wanderlust, eager to discover new people, cultures, and landscapes to visit places in dire need of social and educational build-up. Countries around the world are filled with destinations and opportunities for one to help create brighter and more secure futures for underprivileged children and adults.

From volunteering to teach the English language to basic math and IT, here education includes not just the curricular activities but also those extra ones that play a major role in personality building of a child, such as sports and art. Some programs require a TEFL certificate but mostly they are looking for excited individuals willing to immerse themselves in the local cultures and not just teach but also learn from their pupils.

The welcoming eastern culture in addition with the humble people of the country, easily makes it one of the best places to volunteer and travel in the world.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
