International Schools Tour to Thailand & Vietnam

International Schools Tour to Thailand & Vietnam

HUGE thanks to Authors Abroad for organising my latest schools tour. Five weeks, three countries, eight massive international schools, thousands of happy students, millions of words spoken and written …. it was EPIC!

I began in Bangkok with St Andrews International School, flew down to Phuket for the British School Phuket, then it was back up to Bangkok for King’s College International School and Singapore International School. Week 3 was free, so I flew to Laos and had a fantastic time (despite being hit by a motorbike, but that is another story!) Then it was back to Bangkok for a flight to Vietnam. European International School HCMC, British International School HCMC and Australian International School Saigon in the south (Ho Chi Minh City) then it was another flight to the north and the United Nations International School Hanoi.

The weather was brutally hot. 38 degrees sounds great when you’re flying out of a cold, wet UK, but it soon becomes exhausting. The accident left me with an enormous black eye and so much bruising on my leg, I was more purple than pink (the kids were so impressed!) But still, it was a FANTASTIC trip. One I will remember for a long time to come. It was the kind of trip I thought – back in the dark days of COVID, when the world was completely shut down – I might never do again. So that made it extra-special. And even when it’s tiring, work like this is always, always joyous.
