Singles Only, Says Who? 7 Reasons to Teach English Abroad as a Couple

 By: Tom Buskey


In today’s world, social media has a strong presence. People are constantly bombarded with news, videos, and opinions of other people. So many times I have seen on social media outlets the benefits of solo traveling and the amazing experience you will receive. Although this may be true, I am here to tell you that moving abroad and traveling around the world is not only for single people and that the couples can do it too!

Many believe that moving/traveling abroad will be this soul searching experience and you will be able to get in touch with your inner self and find out your true calling in life. This may be the case, but you can also achieve those same goals with your partner (or friend) by your side. Some may say that traveling alone will give you a sense of achievement and independence, but I really do believe that I was able to accomplish those goals even with my partner by my side.

I had the passion and drive to arrange my life to move, completed all of the preparations one could do before leaving their home country, and had a sense of peace about the entire process and the impending move. I thought moving to Prague to be an English teacher would be a breeze… But I realize now nothing could have prepared me for what life would be like when embarking on such a wild voyage!
