How I'm Funding Traveling in Asia While Living & Teaching English in Vietnam

By: Ana Santos

Exploring opportunities while enjoying diversity in Asia.

My passion for people, culture, and languages has inspired me to travel to more than 40 countries. It all started when I was a baby traveling and camping with my family in Europe. This allowed me to travel and made me curious about learning foreign languages as well as diversity. To fund my travel and research as a Masters student, I’ve decided to take TEFL class in Istanbul, and I’m currently teaching in Vietnam. I like studying, and at the age of 42, I thought it could be the right time to teach and inspire others in developing countries. With a focus on transportation and ecotourism while travelling and researching, I settled in Hanoi where I saw great opportunity to do what I like the most: traveling and learning. In between I’m funding my adventures through teaching English and online business.
