Hey Dan,

sorry I can´t post any chick pics. I got a warning from the mods. I guess I posted too many in the past. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif (no regrets)

I know you are young and just starting out Dan. This is probably the first time this has ever happened to you also but it could be worse. 've been without a home a few times but I'd have to say the worst was about 6 years ago.

I went to China without knowing even one word. The agency that brought me there was a scam, surprise, surprise. I ended up, on my 2nd day in China, in a small obscure city (Xian Tao) homeless, speechless, moneyless, and hiding from the local authorities. The agency reported me as a spy because I sent an email back to Canada warning that the agency was a scam.

My advice is to take things step by step, day by day, and most importantly, don't get frustrated or impatient with the situation. Be stubborn and don't let life get you down or defeat you. There is no better feeling than knowing you've won when so many others would have failed in your situation.

It's life vs Danjama and my money is on you buddy. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Maybe my worst experience in China was being sentenced to 3 months in Chinese prison. Can you believe SARS got me out?

Actually, even worse was needing emergency surgery for a ruptured appendix(about 40 hours late). The bill was 11,000 Euro. It was painful. That was last November.

Truth is, you don't need much money to travel the world. TBH, I'm not very happy with my life. It's been more bad times then good and everyone has gotten older while I was away. When I call my family the first question is "where are you?".

Life a d4mn short and time flies when you do all the things I've been doing. Now I want to live in a little village where the world is only on TV. I want to be with family and have a simple life and believe me, it's not easy to accomplish at this point but I'm trying. I envy all my friends who have a family and can grow older with them. That's what life is about.

On a world with 6 billion people I have been alone for so many years. All the things I've seen and done aren't worth as much as a day with family.

That´s cool, especially that you are learning Spanish. There is a slight problem though and that is your age. I`d suggest you wait another 2-3 years.

This is one way;

http://www.teachandtravel.net/

It wasn`t how I started but this is really one of the best ways to get going. Effectively, you can move to a new country every year. If you don`t care about making huge amounts of money, I`d recommend Mexico or South America first.

Teachers are not made, they are born, never forget that. But you'll never know if you don`t try.

Learn by doing. First, being a native speaker is a great asset. You speak English out of habit and if you are not afraid to learn you can teach how the language actually works.

The only real problem you`d have is age. If you think you have the personality to be a teacher, then I`d recommend you study English in your spare time. I am serious. Get Oxford`s "New Headway" and start at elementary. It will explain in detail how the grammar works.

No one will hire and 18 year old. Wait until you are 20 or 21. I'd suggest, you also look to Celta(Google it).

Believe me, if you like making jokes then teaching English can be fun.

Think about it dude, spend a couple years in Mexico perfecting your Spanish while you teach English(get experience) and spend your spare time on the beach. Then, head to Brazil. You'll pick up Portugues pretty quickly. What they say about Brazilian women is true. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Stay away from booze?

Yes, more or less, because booze and drugs are ultimately the same thing if one is prone to addictions. Not _all_ of us are, though!

Now I've seen a thing or two in my time as well, having been a gigging and recording semi-pro musician for ages now (this is something I usually don't bring up around here). And suffices to say that many MANY of my old friends, musicians or otherwise, are nowadays either junkies or boozers, because they didn't understand what they were dealing with in the first place! And when they did, it was too late to stop http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

So yep, be careful with those substances - be them legal or otherwise - out there...

I know man, I know. It was a meaningless joke on my part. As a veteran of a childhood filled with drug using, drug selling, gun running, alcoholic and otherwise totally abusive parents.. I know the score.

But as you say, we usually leave our real world baggage at the door to these forums.

On the subject of teaching, my English Lit teacher was the best teacher (still is i should say, he still teaches me after 5 years)! He has a great sense of humour, easy going, open about his life, personal or other, and he is obviously a great teacher. He always had a way of teaching that made you interested, like mixing personal experiences and exercises into it. Teaching abroad could be a fantastic lifestyle. AS for teaching being something your born with, i think it is something you can acquire, but natural talent at public speaking and a sense of humour are essential i reckon.

in life, do this:

Baldie, I have somewhat conservative views and often surprise friends when they find out I am an ex-military and ex-Peace Corps. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Fiscally, I would be somewhat right of a Rush Limbaugh but socially more to the left. My biggest complaint on social programs is that they need to be effective. I don't like paying taxes for a program that doesn't really help people but ends up making them dependant on the program. My own personal feeling is I never want to live off of a guaranteed government anything...job, pension etc. I am competitive to an nth degree and know the government will never do as good a job as I can at taking care of me. I've been accused of being a right-wing facist AND a left wing-pinko communist--at the same time--which indicated the position of the accuser more than it described me.

While currently a US citizen (I also hold Spanish and French citizenship as well), I've lived nearly half my life abroad in many places from the cozy comforts of Europe to some of the worst hellholes on the planet.

Currently saving up to go back to Africa. This time I'm headed for Kenya on a purely personal and hopefully fun adventure. One of my co-workers is Kenyan and we plan on heading back in a year or so to stay with his family and do a real safari rather than the tourist trap ones...
