Next academic year I plan to take a gap year and travel to Southeast Asia to explore and delve into the varying cultures that exist in that region of the world. For the first month I will be in Thailand, traveling through a program called Geovisions. During my time here I will be living with a host family teaching them conversational English as well as contributing some of my time to a local school, teaching kids English. After my time in Thailand I plan to take the train and visit parts of China, India, Burma, Nepal, Tibet, etc. During this time traveling I will hopefully meet other people along the way and photograph and journalist the whole trip. I am taking this trip in hopes of furthering my global knowledge, and gaining worldly experience.
